Deepika Padukone has a typical Chinese look in her hyped upcoming movie Chandni Chowk To China where she stars opposite Akshay Kumar. Deepika has confessed that in the film releasing January 16, she plays a double role. One that of an Indian, and the other a Chinese girl.

It was extremely difficult to make a sharp featured- big eyed typical Indian beauty look Chinese. Now what's interesting is to note how she got that look. In fact it was a well thought about process. Director Nikhil Advani asked his makeup experts to give Deepika's eyes the slant look that is sharpened at the edge. They said they wanted to stick tapes around Deepika's eyes. This very idea scared the actress and even her doctor advised her to not go for something like that as it would harm her eyes.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]It was then that makeup artiste Mallika Bhatt came to the rescue and talked about using the eyeliner in a different manner. The basic eye makeup- the eyeliner was used in such a way that Deepika got those Chinese tweaked eyes without getting herself into pain.

Apart from achieving the correct look, Deepika also had to undergo four months of rigorous training before the film started.

Well, the babe seems to have worked hard to look real in the movie. Now whether the hard work pays off or not is another story altogether.
