Trust Keerthy Suresh to get into the skin of every character she takes on. For her forthcoming film, Miss India, the actress has completely transformed herself to look the part.
The film, directed by debutante Narendra Nath, is said to feature Keerthy in multiple looks over various timelines. To get her look right, apart from shedding a few kilos, Keerthy also did extensive research. “She pursued a fashion course after her college, and that helped her in understanding what looks her character has to possess,” says Narendra.
Although the film is not a costume drama, interestingly, Keerthy took on more than 50 look trials to get it right with her multiple looks.
“For each look, she had around 10 look tests; as there are multiple looks in the film, she had to sit through more than 50 look tests overall to get the right look for her role. And honestly, her knack of effortlessly slipping into the character really surprises me. She was quick to understand the emotional arch her character goes through, and accordingly, got accustomed to the look. She was very patient and never had any airs,” adds Narendra....
