The latest news is that our favourite megastar Amitabh Bachchan is sporting a 'phenomenal" new look in his upcoming home production Paa which is meant to make heads turn, the make-up for which takes four hours.
He wrote in his blog: "My rituals today were guided by the extensive hours at the studio, a major portion of which were in front of the make up mirror, getting the face plastered with silicon. It took 4 hours for it all to come on and another hour to take it off. But may I say the results were simply phenomenal."
He has informed that the production is relying on a team of make-up artistes from abroad for his look in the film which went on floors on March 2. It also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Vidya Balan and Hurman Baweja in important roles. The film is being directed by R Balki who made the endearing and funny Cheeni Kum with Big B.
Big B added, "The team of make up artistes flown in from Los Angeles and carrying huge and important credentials were exemplary in their job. Professional to the core and committed to the last brush of paint on the face."
Interestingly the movie has an interesting touch. Bachchan terms it as an endearing address by Abhishek (Bachchan) to his father. Yes, it"s well known that Abhishek and now Ash called Bachchan Paa.
Looks like there"ll be a whole lot of personal touch in the movie as well.
