Akshay, Aishwarya sport 70â€™s look
Vipul Shah’s ‘Action Replay’ goes back to 1970s. Therefore, the hair styling of the actors was also done accordingly. Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai were dressed up like that of the 70’s. Hollywood famous make-up artists Paul Pattison is assigned for the job.
Says Vipul, "Since we haven't copied our 1970s look from Hindi films, Akshay and Aishwarya sat down to look at real- life footage from the decade to get the look right. They specially looked at television footage of live cricket matches in the 1970s. Akshay was busy peering at the pavilion of spectators, what they wore, how they spoke moved their body language. That's how he conceived his character in the 70s. That's where Paul Pattison's wig came in."
Vipul further adds, "We were very particular about the 1970s look recreated at the Nitin Chandrakant Desai's studio in Karjat. We needed the cars from the 70s which we had to get from all over India from private owners at a very heavy price. The BEST buses in the 1970s were very different from their counterparts today. Getting authentic BEST buses from the 70s was the hardest part of the whole era-recreation. Getting Akshay and Aishwarya to go retro was the easiest thing. They had a ball getting into their wigs clothes and body language."
Akshay is working hard to look very alike of the 70’s not only in style but mannerism also.
