Rajkummar Rao Reveals Reason Behind His Unibrow in Made in China and It Has Something To Do With Film’s Director
Rajkummar Rao explained the idea of a unibrow came about from film-maker Mikhil Musale, who has one himself! It was a feature that stood out for Rao.
Actor Rajkummar Rao is gearing up for the comedy thriller Made In China and his look is the talk of the town, especially for one particular feature that stands out – his unibrow. Film-maker Mikhil Musale revealed that Rajkummar, who plays the main role of lead protagonist Raghu Mehta, gained eight kilos to get a big belly for his part. Interestingly, the inspiration for a unibrow came from Musale who sports one himself. "When I saw Mikhil for the first time, his unibrow was one of his features that was most striking. Without being out there and in your face, it does create a pretty strong mental impression of someone," Rajkummar said.
"I am always looking to experiment with my looks for each character I play on the screen and after we decided to embark upon this film journey together, I'd made up my mind to pull inspiration from Mikhil and sport a distinct unibrow. It looked very different and I felt it gave my character an interesting touch," he added.
Meanwhile, Rajkummar explained that he is enjoying the film shooting but is not taking it easy and is in fact pushing himself to do better. "What I'm liking about doing all these films is that I'm adding some new element to my characters. I don't want people to feel that they have seen this stuff earlier. I'm pushing myself, it's risky but I'm enjoying it. I'm not just taking it easy, it's not coming naturally to me but it's a lot of fun," he said. Made in China unravels the story of a struggling Gujarati businessman and his bizarre journey to success. "A lot of people have seen the film's cut and I can't wait for the people to watch the film. It's a very special film, made with a lot of heart," he concluded.
