Talking about the prosthetics used in Gulabo Sitabo, Amitabh Bachchan in an earlier interview said, “What I learnt from the makeup artist on Gulabo Sitabo was that the most identifiable feature in face prosthetics is the nose. Change just that and the entire face changes. That is what was executed after several trials and errors on the ‘look’. Once that was settled we went ahead with the rest of the look – the eyes, the spectacles, the ageing etc. Nose well in place did the rest.”
