The renowned special effects makeup maestro, Greg Cannom, who started work on developing Shah Rukh's look for the film, spent considerable time at the studio recently with the actor, director, Maneesh Sharma and producer, Aditya Chopra.

Greg has been nominated for nine Academy Awards and has won an Oscar three times for the memorable looks he created in 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' (2008), 'Mrs. Doubtfire' (1993) and 'Dracula' (1992), apart from several other prestigious awards. In 2005, along with Wesley Wofford, he received a Technical Achievement Award from the Academy for the development of special modified silicone material used for makeup applications in motion pictures.

Speaking about the look, Maneesh said, “We are attempting a never-seen before look for Shah Rukh which will be both challenging for us and exciting for the viewer. Understandably, this will be kept under wraps till the first look of the film is revealed.”

The film releases worldwide on 14th August 2015.
