Calling his look “a technological wonder”, Akshay tweeted: “My look in #2Point0 is nothing short of a technological wonder! Watch to know how it was brought to life.”

The video shows Akshay Kumar turning into a beast with prosthetic makeup experts diligently working around him to achieve a perfect look. As the vampiresque creature, Hindi cinema’s A-lister literally turned into a fear-inducing beast with gigantic wings.
