Neil Nitin Mukesh Is Unrecognisable In Indu Sarkar, Here Are Other Stars Who Used Prosthetics With Aplomb
Acting is not a cake walk! The actors need to get into the skin of the character to make it look real. In the bid to be convincing, actors often use prosthetics. The latest example is Neil Nitin Mukesh, who used prosthetics in his upcoming film Indu Sarkar, so that he could play the character allegedly based on Sanjay Gandhi.

Take a look at the actors who went one step ahead to make themselves look true to their character:

Shraddha Kapoor

Shraddha Kapoor In The Queen Of Mumbai Haseena

In order to step into the shoes of Haseena Parkar in her upcoming film of the same name, Shradhha Kapoor used facial prosthetics. She wore them even while dubbing the film so that her voice could sound heavier. As per the instructions of director Apoorva Lakhia, she even gained weight but ultimately had to use body-suits to look fuller.

Rajkummar Rao

Rajkummar Rao had stunned us with his avatar in Raabta. The actor played the role of a 324-year-old man in the film. To get into the skin of the character, Rajkumaar spent 5-6 hours in the make-up chair, getting layers added to his face.

Rishi Kapoor

The senior actor played the role of a grandfather in the Sidharth Malhotra-Alia Bhatt-Fawad Khan starrer Kapoor & Sons. The senior actor would spend 5 hours in the make-up chair for the film to get his look right.
