2.0 starring Akshay Kumar and Rajinikanth is going to be a whole new upturn in terms of Bollywood’s visual usage and art. At a massive budget of rs 543 crore, 2.0 will be one of the Bollywood costliest production till date, beating even Hollywood’s blockbuster, Deadpool. However, the thrill of the soon-to-release fantasy movie has more to do with the ginormous amount invested. It also has to do with the visual, CGI effects and the use of raw art Bollywood has invested in.
And the credit of this page-flip visual transformation has the hands of non-other than James Cameroon, Avatar makeup artist, Sean Foot. While of the sets of the shoot Akshay Kumar took to Instagram to post his terrifying Crow Man look and it definitely looks like it required a lot of patient-sitting that zings the feet.
Watch the metamorphic transformation of Akshay in a video here:
Here’s a curiosity-buster from our end! Makeup artist, Sean Foot is the legend behind Akshay Kumar’s fiendish-vampire look and the Khiladi made sure that the artist’s work is accounted for by posting a video of the prosthetic makeup on his Twitter and Instagram account.
And true to his profession, Sean in the video made best use of his art skill rather than the special effects of technology to give Akshay Kumar, the look that will keep us up at night.
Earlier, during the trailer launch of 2.0, Akshay said, “It was a very challenging role and it took a toll on my body. But the pain and sacrifices were worth it. My character required around 4 hours of prosthetic make-up and another hour and a half to remove it. In my whole career, I’ve never put so much of makeup.”
2. 0 is a sequel to Rajinikanth’s 2010 Enthiran movie where the megastar shared the screen alongside Aishwarya Rai. Akshay Kumar is to play the Crow Man in 2.0 who is obsessed with cell phones and will also star Amy Jackson and Adil Hussain.
The fantasy movie is set to release on November 29 in major languages like Tamil, Hindi and Telugu.
