Ever since the trailer for BellBottom dropped, the one thing people can’t get over, is Lara Dutta’s transformation into former PM, Indira Gandhi.
She looks absolutely unrecognizable, and without a doubt, make-up artist Vikram Gaikwad, and his team, have nailed the look.
Lara Dutta also shared a video of what went down into the transformation on social media.
Never had I imagined portraying someone this pivotal. When I saw how it translated on the screen, everything felt surreal and worth it. Here’s my transformation BTS#Bellbottom@akshaykumar @vashubhagnani @vaaniofficial @humasqureshi @ranjit_tiwari @jackkybhagnani @honeybhagnani pic.twitter.com/RILtWikUcx— Lara Dutta Bhupathi (@LaraDutta) August 5, 2021
It took a prosthetic nose, a wig, and long hours of getting ready.
But the end result was definitely worth the effort.
