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

Megas­tar Amitabh Bachchan (right), who is cur­rently busy shoot­ing for his next film, says that he never had the priv­i­lege of pros­thet­ics, green back­grounds, VFX, ‘post’ touch-ups and face re­place­ments dur­ing his time.

The 74-year-old ac­tor also said that it takes three hours for his makeup for the film. “The [shoot­ing for] 102 Not Out con­tin­ues un­abated. And in­volves a good three hours in makeup and re­moval af­ter for an hour. The pain taken by a host of artists that spe­cialise in the craft is com­mend­able,” Amitabh wrote on his blog.

The ac­tor added: “And now this be the norm... the young and the ag­ile give way to the old and the pros­thet­ics, to the green back­grounds, to the VFX, to the ‘post’ touch ups and face re­place­ments... all part of film mak­ing to­day, but never had such priv­i­lege in our time.”
