Getting into the look of the character is in. Gone are the days when actors looked and acted the same film after film. Now is the time for experimentation when it comes to adopting a different body language, mannerisms and facial expressions for every other film. However, for Akshay Kumar it was thrice the effort as he was required to go through not one, not two but three distinct looks in ACTION REPLAYY.
Informs an insider who has had a sneak peak into the film, "First and foremost the fact remains that since ACTION REPLAYY is a retro film, the base look of the film as well as its characters had to represent that era. To get that correct look, there was quite some deliberation done by Akshay, Vipul Shah and other crew members who were in charge of costumes, hair etc. Ultimately they settled for a look that found its inspiration from actors like Sunil Dutt, Vinod Mehra, Vinod Khanna and even a few top cricketers of that time."
However, this is not all that one would see of Akshay in the film. The actor carries two more looks in the film and these are currently being kept hidden from the audience.
"Yes, there are two more looks. One is from the 70s and the other is in the current times", informs the source, "His character goes through a complete transformation around the time when he gets closer to the character played by Aishwarya. Before that he has a slightly funny persona. However, it won't be right to call it nerdy or geek. The look that he carries in the current times is that of an old man. His character is someone who is frustrated with his marriage and is constantly having conflict with his wife. All of this is shown in a fun manner though and his old look pretty much compliments the frustration he is going through."
On contacted, Vipul didn't deny the fact about Akshay's three looks. "Yes, Akshay would look quite different as the story of the film progresses. Beyond that, I guess I shouldn't say much. You should watch the film yourself to know more about it."
ACTION REPLAYY releases all over on 5th November 2010.
