The story behind Rajkummar Rao’s look in Ludo on Netflix

Upcoming Netflix multi-starrer film ‘Ludo’, which narrates four different stories, features a stellar cast.

Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Aditya Roy Kapur, Fatima Sana Sheikh, Pankaj Tripathi and Sanya Malhotra, all play diverse characters in the film.

However, it’s Rao’s never-before-seen avatar that caught the attention of many viewers. Playing a Mithun Chakraborty fan, the actor sports long hair in Ludo.

The film’s director, Anurag Basu, revealed how the look for the character was decided:

“Raj is a very versatile actor. The story of his character is actually pretty funny – we had a look test with him for which he donned the look of the legendary Mithun Chakraborty. He liked this avatar so much that he said we should just go ahead with this. When he did his first scene in character, it came out really well.”

The filmmaker added: “Working with him has been fun – there is a Ram Leela scene in the film, which was written initially without any fight. While we were on set, Raj shows me this video on his phone where a fight breaks out during the Ram Leela and we just incorporated that into our film too!”

Ludo comes out on November 12. Here’s the official trailer:
