Talking to media about his looks in Shankar’s sci-fi film, Akshay Kumar had said that it was because of “a massive amount of makeup”. Sharing a video on social media, bollywood superstar unveiled a glimpse of the tiring four-hour-long make-up process in which he used to sit patiently to transform in to the main villain of India’s costliest film ever.
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.
Earlier this month, during the trailer launch of 2.0, Akshay said that this was a very challenging role for him. “The role took its toll on my body. but all my sacrifices and pain were worth it. I set for around four hours of prosthetic makeup. Then hour and a half to take it off. In my two-decades long career, I’ve never put so much of makeup.”
The production process for 2.0 took nearly three years. It included over one year in post-production. The total cost for its makers, Lyca Productions, stands at a whopping Rs 550 crore.
