We’re quite curious to know what makeover Cannom is planning to give to Shahrukh, as he has done up the biggest stars of Hollywood like Brad Pitt and Robin Williams. Shahrukh who is a huge superstar in India and among the expatriates will be playing a fan himself in the new film. Wonder what SRK’s new get-up will be like!
Director Maneesh Sharma said that they were trying to create a “never-seen before look for Shahrukh, which will be both challenging for us and exciting for the viewer. Understandably, this will be kept under wraps till the first look of the film is revealed.”
Cannom has won the Academy Award three times and has been an Oscar nominee not less than nine times! He has received the Academy’s technical achievement award in 2005 (along with Wesley Wofford) for the development of special modified silicone material used for makeup applications in motion pictures.
The make up and special effects artist, whose movies include Dracula (1992), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) and Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), spent time at the YRF Studios experimenting with SRK’s look.
Produced by Aditya Chopra, FAN is directed by Maneesh Sharma and written by Habib Faisal. The movie releases worldwide on the eve of the Indian Independence Day (August 14, 2015). Shooting begins in July 2014, says YRF.
