How to be the PER­FECT MU­TANT

India Today - - GLOSSARY -

With only days to go be­fore su­per­hero flick Kr­rish 3 hits the­atres on Novem­ber 1, an­tic­i­pa­tion is build­ing. Ev­ery su­per­hero needs his neme­sis, and Kan­gana Ra­naut, as the evil yet beau­ti­ful mu­tant Kaya, is one.

Get the cos­tume right

De­signer Gavin Miguel cre­ated a cus­tom-made la­tex full body suit for Ra­naut, who had to ap­ply oil all over her body to get into it. “It’s like hav­ing another skin,” she says.

Keep hair in place

For the fight se­quences, Ra­naut’s curly hair was kept in place not with gel or wax but with su­gar wa­ter, which was ap­plied on her scalp daily. Her hair­style in the film varies from spikes to a braid.

Get an­i­mal-like fea­tures

Thick eye­lin­ers were used to en­hance the round­ness of her eyes and three lay­ers of false eye­lashes were glued to fur­ther high­light them. The mu­tant act re­quired Ra­naut not to be too emo­tive, but be ro­bot-like.

Get the per­fect body

“La­tex is a ma­te­rial that shows ev­ery de­tail of your body,” says Ra­naut. To achieve “a firm bot­tom and chest and a tiny waist”, she fol­lowed a diet pre­scribed by nu­tri­tion­ist An­jali Muk­er­jee.
