The team of the film did almost 16 look test before picking the final one. It was also said that a special team from Los Angeles hired on board and worked with Zuby Johal to etch the get up for the actor.
The director Dinesh Vijan said that “The actor was kind enough me to do a flavor. It was most tedious work, but he sat patiently through it every day. But I think the idea of prosthetics and making him completely unrecognizable excited him as a star.” While his body posture and voice modulation had to be worked upon.
In order to get into his character, the actor underwent 5 to 6 hours of prosthetics every day. His styling was an important too, in addition to that he had to wear accessories and also have some tattoos.
While talking about his appearance in the film, Rajkummar said that “I think it was so much fun being an actor. Dinesh has a very clear vision as a filmmaker and he gave me a lot of freedom as an actor to explore my talent.” He further added that the prosthetics used to take five to six hours daily and then I would begin sweating inside that make-up, but it needed quite a bit of patience.”
