Recently he tweets that he is ‘Son Of A Famous Father – Father Of A Famous Son. I Am The Hyphen!’ If you guessed Rishi Kapoor, you would be absolutely right and we bet you only got it because of the hint. Because Father Kapoor looks nothing like himself in these pictures from director Divya Khosla Kumar’s film ‘Sanam Re’.

The actor went through over 100 reference looks before finalizing this one, something that ought to gladden the heart of Aamir Khan who is also similarly meticulous and thorough when it comes to his characters’ ‘looks.’

Divya Khosla Kumar said, “Rishiji is essaying the role of an 85-year-old man and this look has blown everyone away! The make-up took close to 4-5 hours and he never complained even once. What enhances the look further is the attention to detail and nuances worked upon by Rishiji such as the body language, the expressions, he even picked out the character’s spectacles himself from a market and that highlights his passion as an actor and commitment to the role.”

Sanam Re is set to release in 2016.
