On his 93rd birthday which fell on Wednesday,
painter-extraordinaire M. F. Husain got a heart-warming tribute
from an unexpected quarter.
"Amitda's get-up in The Last Lear was meant to be like
Rabindranath Tagore. Long flowing hair and beard....unkempt and
untameable. But he finally ended up looking like M F Husain," says
the film's director Rituparno Ghosh.
An unexpected problem cropped up. "I wanted Amit-da to use crepe
on his beard. But I didn't know he was allergic to artificial
facial hair. He had used it in Khuda Gawah and
Eklavya. But had decided he won't thereafter. So, we had
to drop the long-flowing beard and just stick to the cascading
hair." End-result? "Amit-da ended up looking more like Husain Saab
than Rabindranath Tagore."
