Bollywood actors who have been through a major makeover for their characters are truly respectable because of the hard work. Some of them have sat for hours on the go in the same chair, just to get their make-up right. Just like Deepika Padukone in Chhapaak, here are five actors who have recently gone through extreme make-up to play the character.
1. Akshay Kumar in 2.0
Akshay went through extreme make-up to look like the Bird man in the film 2.0. He had even put up a video about the hours of make-up one has to go through to achieve the look. His make-up man got several awards for giving Akshay the look of a Bird Man.
2. Amitabh Bachchan in Paa

5. Rajkummar Rao in Raabta
