Actor Anupam Kher essays a double role in the film Zokkomon, which is being produced by Disney Studios. The production company hired prosthetics expert Guillaume Castange from France who spent a lot of months modelling and remodelling the face of the character that Anupam Kher is playing in the film.
First he designed the face on computer and later with specially designed prosthetic pieces. Kher had get into long make up sessions for almost five hours before getting into into the character. Anupam Kher's modelling was so dramatic that while Zokkomon was being shot in the Film City, his wife Kirron Kher also failed to recognise him. To maintain secrecy about his look, even the call sheet name was changed from Anupam Kher to Samar Singh.
Zokkomon is an action film, which also stars Darsheel Safari from Taare Zameen Par fame. This film will be Walt Disney Studios third production for the Indian market. The music for the film will be given by composer trio, Shankar Ehsaan Loy.
