Sid, Kat to go the pros­thet­ics way

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tors Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra (left) and Ka­t­rina Kaif (right) will play a cou­ple age­ing from 30 to 60 in an up­com­ing movie, and will wear pros­thet­ics make-up for it. The un­ti­tled love story, which is ac­tor-film­maker Farhan Akhtar’s home pro­duc­tion, will be helmed by debu­tante di­rec­tor Nitya Mehra.

“There are dif­fer­ent age groups that we have to play in the film. I have to age as the char­ac­ter grows. I am play­ing a char­ac­ter who grows from the age of 28 to 46 to 60. And to play these parts, is tougher for me. I am ex­cited to try pros­thet­ics to get the look,” says Sid­harth. “Ka­t­rina and I are try­ing dif­fer­ent looks. We have a great pros­thet­ics team from Lon­don Mark Hulio, who’ve won an Os­car,” adds the 30-year-old ac­tor, all praise for the in­ter­na­tional pros­thet­ics make-up team, say­ing that they’ve got great tech­nol­ogy to put sil­i­con masks, change eye colour, hair, etc. “We’ve done enough work­shops, and are quite ex­cited to start the shoot now,” says Sid­harth.

There were re­ports that the pro­ject is more of a time travel movie but the ac­tor de­nies it. “It is not a pe­riod film... it’s not time travel. It is a love story that spans across dif­fer­ent age groups,” says Sid­harth, who will be seen along­side ac­tor Ak­shay Ku­mar in an up­com­ing film. Does he get ner­vous work­ing with es­tab­lished stars like Ak­shay and Ka­t­rina? “Not re­ally,” he con­cludes.
