Lara spoke to Zoom TV about her daughter’s reaction. She stated, “My daughter was captivated. She watched it come to life right before her eyes… ‘Mum, they’re going to kill you, you can’t breathe,’ she exclaimed as she saw the full silicon on my face. She was concerned. But, having said that, she was interested and said, “Can I touch the nose, the eyebrows?” Is it possible for me to accomplish this or that?’”
Lara went on to say of Mahesh Bhupathi’s response, “My husband was taken aback. The gaze most likely made him feel uneasy. ‘I don’t want to embrace you,’ he said. You don’t appear to be yourself.”
Lara provided a sneak glimpse at her makeover for the part on Thursday. She shared a video on Instagram in which her make-up crew used prosthetics to alter her appearance.
She captioned the video, “Never had I imagined portraying a personality this pivotal & when I saw how this transformation translated on the screen, everything felt surreal & worth it.✨ Can’t wait for y’all to watch my performance in #BellBottom on the big screen in 3D on 19th Aug.💯”
The film BellBottom, directed by Ranjit M Tewari, is set in 1984, the year of Operation Bluestar and the killing of the former Prime Minister. Akshay Kumar and Vaani Kapoor both star in the film. The film will be released in theaters on August 19. It will be available in both 2D and 3D versions for the audience to enjoy.
