How Arjun Kapoor’s look in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar was created
Make-up artist Sanah Keval discusses her work on Dibakar Banerjee’s film
Bollywood make-up and hair artist Sanah Keval designed the looks of Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in Dibakar Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
In the film’s climax, Arjun dresses up as a girl to sneak past the cops. The look was created and designed over two weeks. It took him two hours to get into the make-up.
Talking about creating Arjun's look, Sanah says, "I sat with Dibakar and had a long discussion about each and every character, be it Arjun Kapoor to Dinkar to Sejal. He was very much precise about hair, makeup, beard. He was the one who gave importance to hair, wardrobe, makeup.”
The rest of the film has Arjun playing a tough Haryanvi cop. Sanah gave him a rough, strong-tanned look to get into the character.
“It looks really good on the screen and he has done an amazing job. I think he carried himself really good and his hair was short. In fact, Hakim was with me and we all had a great experience working together with Arjun and even Parineeti,” she said.
Sanah has worked on several Hindi films, designing the looks of Yami Gautam, Pareeniti Chopra, Dia Mirza, Nawazuddin Siddique, Angad Bedi, Sunny Kaushal and others. She’s popularly referred to as Sanah Makeovers.
