New Delhi, July 29 (IANS) Mohan Joshi, who essays the role of Swami Samarth in “Deool Band”, says it took almost three hours to get his make-up done for his character in the forthcoming Marathi film, and it was tiring.
“It was tiresome for me every day to go through such rigorous make-up. It took almost three hours just for the make-up to be put and my make-up man was very patient and made sure that the make-up was perfect,” Mohan said in a statement.
“By the time we reached the end schedule of the shoot, my make-up man started experiencing back pain because of long standing hours. I am sure audiences would like me in this new avatar,” added the actor.
Co-directed by Pravin Tarde and Praneet Kulkarni, the film is based on the philosophies of Swami Samarth.
“While we were shooting at one of the holy places and when Mohanji got out of the vanity van for the shoot, seeing him all of us got goosebumps as he looked exactly like Swamiji and the crowd which had gathered there also started touching his feet taking blessings. We found it really very difficult to shoot,” said Tarde.
The film, which also stars Gashmeer Mahajani, Girija Oak and Nivedita Saraf, is slated to release this Friday.
