Turns out, Indravadan J Purohit was the man wearing the alien costume.
The whole idea of 'Jadoo', was planned and conceived in Australia by James Colmer, Hrithik once stated in an interview.
There were a lot of discussions about his facial features, like whether the eyes should have been inspired by those of a human or those of an animal.
James Colmer was born in England in 1967. He has B.A Degree in fine arts, Commercial arts and Designing, 3D Computer Graphics, Sound and Lighting.
It took more than a year, to make 'Jadoo', for 'Koi Mil Gaya'.
'Jadoo' was designed to have big eyes and was 3 feet in height.
