Aamir Khan is known to go to great lengths to get into the skin of a character. He has now got piercings on his nose and ears to get the look for his upcoming film, Thugs Of Hindostan.
According to the makers, it was necessary for the Dangal actor to have his nose and ears pierced. So, it doesn’t come as a surprise that he readily agreed. The makers have also shared pictures of his look in the film. However, they have stated that this is not his final look in the film directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya.
This is the first time the actor will be sporting a nose and ear piercing. A couple of days ago, Amitabh Bachchan, his co-star in the film, had shared an image of himself and Khan sitting at a pub. But Khan's face wasn't visible clearly.
An official statement from the producers claims that Khan got the piercings a month ago, but is still suffering from pain. “It’s been a month since Aamir has pierced it and it’s still painful. In fact, he is often heard screaming out in pain when by mistake someone touches it. He can't sleep on his right side at all,” said the statement.
For his last film, Dangal, Khan piled on the pounds to convincingly portray real-life wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat. He then lost all the weight to play the character’s younger self.
