Mumbai: With the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer ‘Chhichhore’ completing one year on Monday, the film’s makeup artist Preetisheel Singh revealed that the late actor wanted to go bald and play the role of Mahatma Gandhi in a film.
In an interview with Times Of India, Preetisheel recalled how she spent hours dressing up Sushant for ‘Chhichhore’ and how the actor loved his bald look.
“When I was getting him ready for the film, the moment he looked at himself in the mirror in that look, he said that the bald look quite suited him. He quite liked the appearance,” the makeup artist said.
“He had seen himself transform into many other avatars. He did discuss the same with me and would share a lot of ideas as well. Like, he told me that among many other great personalities, he wanted to transform into Mahatma Gandhi for a project. He wanted it to be very real and authentic. He used to get very excited discussing it,” she added.
Preetisheel, who has worked on films like ‘Housefull 3’, ‘Shivaay’, ‘Ujda Chaman’ among others, observed that ‘Chhichhore’ will always be special for her.
“It was a project with a very exciting group of actors. The energy at our makeup base was always very high,” she said.
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, ‘Chhichhore’ featured Sushant, Shraddha Varun Sharma, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Naveen Polishetty and Tushar Pandey.
