Hollywood technicians and Indian films share a certain camaraderie. This was proved in the past and trending actively with most of the big tickets in the Country. Yash Raj Films is now following suit and has roped in none other than Greg Cannon, as Oscar winning make up artist to develop the new look for Shah Rukh Khan in his upcoming film, Fan.
The film with this catchy title actually will have SRK playing the role of a ‘fan’ – literally.. While this sounds exciting and curious at the same time, the film makers have not revealed much about the role yet. Greg will be extensively designing the look for Shah Rukh to this effect. The film, to be directed by Maneesh Sharma of ‘Band Baaja Baarat’ fame, will start filming from July.
Cannon held some long discussions with SRK, Maneesh and producer Aditya Chopra at the YRF Studio yesterday to conclude the final action plan with regards to the make up. Greg Cannon won three Oscars and was nominated as many as nine times for the same, was the man behind the look of Brad Pitt in ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, Robbin Williams in ‘Mrs Doubtfire’ and the make up behind ‘Dracula’. This for itself speaks about the skill quotient of the technician.
Talking about the project and hiring Greg, Maneesh said in a statement – “We are attempting a never seen before look for Shah Rukh which will be both challenging and exciting for the viewer. Understandably, this will be kept under wraps until the first look of the film is revealed” he said.
The announcement on rest of the cast and crew is yet to be made.
