Anushka Sharma plays the role of a vibrant jazz singer from the 60s in Anurag Kashyap's magnum opus 'Bombay Velvet' for which she had to put in a lot of effort and time to get the correct look for the film.
Between her makeup, hair and getting into the costumes, her look used to take around 4 hours every day. So, the actress would start her day 4 hours earlier than anyone else. It was extremely difficult to recreate 1960s look as the makeup had to be done in a certain manner and the hair needed to be styled differently. The makeup artists were required to use minimum makeup products since less tools were available in that era. Also, the costumes and the makeup had to be based upon the mood of the song. The whole look was dependent on the type of song, be it a peppy or soft number. A good amount of time was invested to figure out the costume and makeup for Anushka’s look in the film. The makeup had to be different with every costume.
