Anil Kapoor, who plays Anjaney Agashe —  a police officer with grey shades in Malang —  will be seen sporting temporary skull tattoos on each arm in the film. The actor shared that the tattoos were added to his look as part of the narrative. 

“I met a local tattoo artiste in London, who asked me a lot of questions about my past and present, which intrigued me. I didn’t know that tattoo artistes dig so deep to know you as a person, before deciding the design,” Anil shared.

“Eventually, it didn’t work out with her, and we got someone from India. Finalising the design for my character wasn’t an overnight decision, it went through a lot of thinking. The tattoos are crucial to the character as they take him to his past, gives him energy — positive and negative — and a reason to live.”

Asked how the tattoos added to his character, Anil replied, “It is more internal. The character is layered and is not someone who will wake up in the morning, do his hair, shave or grow his beard to look menacing. Whatever he does, comes organically to him. I have not used tattoos as a prop. It helps me to get into the character.”

Malang is directed by Mohit Suri and also stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, and Kunal Keemu. The film is set for release on February 7
