Not everybody can play a 90-year-old grandfather with panache. Well, not everybody is as cool as Rishi Kapoor who can get away with playing a man twice his age (yes, we'd like to believe that Chintu ji is still that young!).
Rishi's avatar of a senile grandfather in Kapoor & Sons has us excited. For all the right reasons! The best part is the incredulous amount of make up and wonderful expertise that must have gone behind turning Rishi into Bhupindernath Kapoor aka Dadu. There are rumours flying around that the make up cost Rs 2 crore!
Don't believe us? Check out ScoopWhoop Talkies as it takes you behind the scenes of the transformation where American artist, Greg Cannom, goes batshit awesome with his unbelievable techniques.

Chintuji has been tweeting about his transformation and we ain't complaining:
