The makers of the upcoming film ‘The Legend of Michael Mishra’ are leaving no stone unturned to get the perfect look for Arshad Warsi, who will play the title role in the movie.
The film, a comedy directed by Manish Jha also stars Aditi Rao Hydari, Boman Irani and his son Kayoze Irani, who was last seen in filmmaker Karan Johar’s ‘Student of The Year’.
Film’s producer Kishor Arora decided to order 12 custom-made wigs worth Rs 5 lakh spanning styles that would fit within the look parameter, ordered from Germany. When the wigs arrived, Arshad alongwith the director and producer had discussion and conducted trials before they chose the right one.
“We had a very specific brief in mind for Arshad’s character. For that look, we needed to have every aspect of the look bang on, especially the hair. We asked a famous German wigmaker to make 10-12 customised wigs for us on the basis of our brief,” Kishor Arora, Eye Candy Films said.
“Once those came in, we spent time with Manish Malhotra and Arshad on shortlisting the look and finally agreed on the one we’ve finally used,” he said.
The team has been taking extra care to ensure that Arshad’s look is not revealed. They have banned the use of cell phones, iPads by the crew on the set.
