Priyanka Chopra Dons Grandma’s Looks For Saat Khoon Maaf
Talented Priyanka Chopra is going to do it again, the gal who played 12 different characters depicting the twelve signs of the Zodiac in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s ‘What's Your Raashee ?’ will be seen playing 20 years old to 60 years old in her latest venture ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’.Priyanka to give a real touch to her 65 year old character has taken looks of her own grandmother.
Reports say that Hollywood make-up artists took the help of her mother and grandmother’s photographs to give her the required look of Suzanna (a sixty-five year old lady) in the movie.
Priyanka is also nervous and says it is her toughest film.The actress quips, “It has been the most challenging part any actor could play. Playing Suzanna was tough for someone like me, who is still in her 20s. During most bits of shooting, I relied completely on Vishal sir, because I had no clue how I was going to take my character forward.”
Priyanka has fashioned the middle-aged character of movie on her mother ,she said, “It was difficult to imagine myself as a 50 year-old woman. How does someone that old walk, talk? I decided to fashion my character on my mother. Not that she is a killer!”
Priyanka detailing out Suzanna’s character said, “When we did our research, we learnt that Indian women don`t age that fast. The make-up artists arrived from Drag Studio, the firm that worked on ‘Benjamin Button’ and ‘Lord of the Rings’. The artists took snaps of my mom, bua, and my grandmom to see how women in my family have aged. And they designed my look accordingly.”
The make-up artists also had a tough time to check out Priyanka’s family aging process to which the actress adds, “We made the make-up artists` life hell since our call time would be 2 am! I would sleep by 7 in the evening, get up by 1.30 am, and by 2 am, I would be ready on the make-up chair. It would take five hours for my make-up to be done. Finally, I`d start shooting at 7 in the morning. By the time they were done working on the film, the make-up artists were like zombies.”
