Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar is leaving no stone unturned to get the best out of his upcoming production film Kapoor & Sons to be directed by Shakun Batra. Karan Johar is going to spend a whopping amount on getting one of Hollywood’s most well-known makeup artist Greg Cannom to do Rishi Kapoor’s makeup in the film.
According to the reports, Kjo who is producing Kapoor & Sons starring Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt in lead roles, will be spending a expense of Rs 1.5 crore for Rishi Kapoor’s make up in the film. Rishi Kapoor who will be seen playing a role of a partial father, will get a high budget make up and to be done by artist Greg Cannom who had also done makeup for Priyanka Chopra in her film 7 Khoon Maaf. The three-time Oscar winner Greg Cannom has done the make-up for Priyanka Chopra’s various ages and seven different looks in the film. The Hollywood special make-up effects artist has worked on films like Hannibal, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Watchmen.
In an interview, Rishi Kapoor also gave his take on Karan Johar spending a big amount for his make up. The veteran actor said that it takes guts to spend so much money on one actor’s makeup. He also chuckled that Kapoor & Sons is not like any other Dharma Production film like Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham.
Talking about the film, Rishi Kapoor will be seen playing the role of a 90-year-old man and a father and that is why Karan Johar introduced Greg Cannom for his makeup. The make up will make him look like a 90 year old man and will surely be unrecognizable. Now the makers of the film are working on Rishi Kapoor’s voice.
