However, beyond SRK's acting, the credit for bringing 25-year-old Gaurav to life goes to the VFX and prosthetics. The make-up done by the wizard Greg Cannom enhances the impact.

And here's the final result (Before and after the VFX):
Ken Metzker, who worked on the final look of the film, felt it was a challenging experience. Metzker, who works as a colourist with Prime Focus company, found it tough to work on the character of 'Gaurav' as the actor's face was digitally restructured through VFX to make him look younger.
Prime Focus began work on 'Fan' in November 2014 when 20-30 shots of the film were tested, and the final look of 'Gaurav' was locked in. Over 500 hundred hours were spent grading the VFX plates and fine-tuning the colour of the movie which released last Friday.
