It would take actor Manoj Bajapayee over four hours to get ready for his numerous avatars in the upcoming film, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhai.
The film, co-starring Diljit Dosanjh and Fatima Sana Shaikh, has Bajpayee playing a detective who habitually slips into multiple disguises.
In the trailer, the actor is seen in the guise of a beggar, an old dabbawala, a turbaned Sikh, and a Maharashtrian woman in a nauvari saree, prosthetic work in place.
On Friday Bajpayee posted an Instagram video, created on time-lapse and showing the actor undergoing hours of dress-up procedure for his many looks in the film.
“Here’s a sneak peek into the mystery surrounding the national man of mystery! #SurajPeMangalBhari releasing this Diwali,” he wrote as the caption.
