There is little doubt that Rajkummar Rao is a bravura
performer. With films such as Shahid, Aligarh, Citylights and Shaitan among
others to his credit, the actor has managed to carve a niche for himself.
Now, Rajkummar is all set to play a 324-year-old man in Raabta. There was a glimpse of Rajkummar in the trailer, and people were wondering as to who that oldie was. Rajkummar finally disclosed the truth by posting a pic this morning on his social media accounts. Check it out:
One glance at his look and you are sure that Rajkummar
must be sitting for hours at stretch to get the prosthetic look to perfection.
However, Rajkummar isn't the first person to have used prosthetics for enhancing the looks of a character in a B-Town film. Kamal Haasan did it in Chachi 420 (1998), Hrithik Roshan in Dhoom:2 (2006), Amitabh Bachchan in Paa (2009), Shah Rukh Khan in Fan (2016), Rishi Kapoor in Kapoor & Sons (2016) and Akshay Kumar in Robot 2.0 (2017), to name a few.
Getting back to Raabta, the film stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon in lead roles. The trailer was released with much fanfare last week, and Sushant came under a lot of controversy for having argued with a senior reporter during the launch. Also, Sushant and Kriti's romantic alliance has been talked about a lot ever since the two started shooting for the film. Knowingly or unknowingly, SSR let the cat out of the bag at the trailer launch when he said that ‘Love happened between Kriti and him on the sets of Raabta’.
Raabta is set to hit theatres on June 9.
