Fans have been talking about the impeccable prosthetics and makeup work that gives the ladies the aged look. While many would think that the prosthetics in the film is restricted to just their face, news is that there are the other assets of the actresses that have been worked upon as well.
In.com has exclusively learnt that both Taapsee and Bhumi will be sporting fake breasts in the movie. We got in touch with the prosthetics artist from Mumbai who made the assets for the actors. Shedding some light into the making of the fake breasts, Yasmin Rodgers says, “During the briefing, I was told that I have to make saggy breasts for the actors. Saggy, maybe because these girls are from the villages and this is a film set in a by-gone era, girls there at the time wouldn’t be wearing bras.” Talking about the process she adds, “To begin with, I took the measurements of the actors to make the moulds out of POPs. After which the final product comes in silicon.”

Yasmin, who has earlier worked on films like Mulk and Gulaab Gang says that the actors would wear a sports bra and stick the fake breasts on the sports bra using Velcro before wearing their costumes. Apart from the breasts, Yasmin also made fake pregnant belly for both Taapsee and Bhumi. “I got a call from Taapsee saying that she found the breasts to be heavy and so I reworked on them and made a lighter version for them,” she adds.
