Ishaan Khatter, who will be making his debut with Majid Majidi's film Beyond The Clouds, says the Iranian filmmaker is "extremely meticulous" when it comes to deciding the look of the characters.

Ishaan, brother of actor Shahid Kapoor, features as the lead in the film along with Malavika Mohanan. Beyond The Clouds covers the nuances of an adorable brother-sister relationship, and has been completely shot in India.

"The process of finalising the look was incredibly detailed. I learnt a whole lot during the look tests, both from and about Majidi sir's process. He's extremely meticulous and every little change he makes adds an immense amount of character," Ishaan says. 

In the film, the actor is seen sporting some interesting tattoos. A source says, "To get the perfect look for the character, Majidi felt that Ishaan should sport some tattoos on his body. Along with the producers, he met a few tattoo artists before selecting one for the job. He also did several sittings with the artist to select the perfect design."

Ishaan will be seen with a barbed wire tattoo on his left arm and a scorpion tattoo on his neck. The positioning of the scorpion tattoo was also crucial to the storyline of the film. "Both the tattoos were real fun to do. They're even more interesting because they're not made to be in your face at all," says the actor. 

The film, produced by Zee Studios and Eyecandy Films, will have its world premiere at the forthcoming 61st BFI London Film Festival. It is an official selection in the competition category, which will take place on October 13 and 14.
