Rani Mukerji's comeback film, 'Aiyyaa' shows her in a very loud rib-tickling avatar. She is seen wearing a blue chiffon sari with over sized goggles to get the funny look. She is also seen wearing typical maharashtrian yellow-green saris as well. The song, 'Dreamum Wakepum...' that does a funny take on south Indian songs see Rani wearing loud make-up with glittery and bright outfits. Here's a look at others who slipped into the shoes of the characters they played, quite literally.
Actor Sanjay Dutt is the latest star to undergo a massive makeover for the movie 'Agneepath' which also stars Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra.
SRK is no stranger to gymming, having sported six pack abs for 'Om Shanti Om' but his latest avatar is a complete departure from his romantic hero look. He grew his beard and hair for a rugged, mean look. We guess Khan is willing to go the extra mile to to do justice to the role that was originally essayed by Amitabh Bachchan.
Those who love Ranbir's clean-shaven, mamma-boy looks were in for a shock when Ranbir decided to grow a full beard. Of course, his tween fans were relieved when they heard it was only for a movie, and Ranbir's efforts paid off when critics appreciated his performance.
During his early days, Aamir largely stuck to his 'chocolate boy' image but the success of 'Lagaan' spurred the actor to experiment with different styles, like in 'Mangal Pandey: the Rising' where he sported a full moustache and long locks. He's never looked back since and his in-character appearances, like in 'Ghajini' have been lapped up by adoring fans.
The Bollywood siren will be playing the role of the famous actress Silk Smitha, and has been also asked to put on weight for the film 'Dirty Picture'. She will also play the role of a pregnant woman in Sujoy Ghosh's 'Kahaani'. That's certainly starkly different from her desi hottie look from 'Parineeta' that stole a million hearts.
Duggu, who's most loved for his celluloid superhero antics and dancing skills, delivered quite a pleasant surprise with his moving role as a paraplegic in the movie 'Guzaarish'. He lost a huge amount of weight to play the character and spend a lot of time in a wheelchair too! Though the movie tanked at the box-office, Hrithik's role was widely praised by critics and fans.
The movie Lakshya saw Preity Zinta represent the role of a reporter which was based on the role of famous journalist Barkha Dutt. In the movie, Preity was seen in a cute-chic look which also saw cut her hair short. The role demanded of a war-time journalist who was sent to cover during the Kargil war. Preity perfectly suited the role and made quite an impression on the silver screen.
When Bebo started out, no one could say that she was fat, but the Kapoor girl was certainly rather, ahem, healthy. However she shed every extra pound she could spare for the 'size zero' figure she flaunted in 'Tashan' and 'Kambakkht Ishq'. Her eating habits were criticized by health experts, though her efforts paid off and Kareena sizzled in a tiny bikini in the movie 'Tashan'
Bachchan Jr played the role inspired by the life of Dhirubhai Ambani in Mani Ratnam's 'Guru' which saw him pile on the pounds. This was Abhishek's finest performance ever and was lauded by critics and fans, and even though he had a lot extra to carry along, the Bachchan lad emerged with flying colours.
Her movies usually passed without causing a stir, but after a hiatus of five years, Antara returned to the silver screen to star as a Buddhist monk in Amol Palekar's 'And Once Again'. Though the movie didnot fare well at the box office, Antara's look was appreciated by critics who said that it was bold for a actress to have gone entirely bald for a movie.
The veteran actor and social activist made headlines when she went bald for the controversial movie 'Fire'. The movie also saw her act out sensuous scenes with Nandita Das, and right wing group stopped screenings across the country.
The Big Brother winner has really let her hair down for this flick!But Shilpa hasn't really gone bald but opted for prosthetic makeup for her dome head look. We're really looking forward to her performance in the Indo-Chinese production and are eager to see just how well Mrs Kundra can act minus her crowning glory.
