The actor was spotted sporting four different looks in the much anticipated teaser of director Shankar's magnum opus
Right from the star studded music launch event with Arnold Schwarzenegger as chief guest, to it's awe inducing trailer. to AR Rahman's magical tunes, director Shankar's I has been generating a lot of buzz. The film is also on the spotlight due to involvement of New Zealand based make up company WETA, which had helped Vikram to transform into different getups for the film.
The teaser depicts Vikram in four different get-ups - a moustache bearing body builder, a clean shaven stylish stud, a hunchbacked cripple and a beast. While the effort put by Vikram and his make up team is commendable, we take a brief look at Vikram's four avatars in the film.
The body builder
In an era where our heroes are looking for an opportunity to show off their chiseled torso, Vikram comes off as a bout of fresh air. The actor known for carefully choosing his character, sports washboard abs in Shankar's I where he is supposed to be playing a fighter. His toned body will have the ladies swooning over him and might inspire the guys to hit the gym.
In the teaser, Vikram impresses with his uber cool look, in a stylish lover boy avatar with clean shaven visage, reminding a bit of Remo from Shankar-Vikram's last collaboration Anniyan. Vikram, the stud, seems to be romancing Amy Jackson in the film and we expect the two to sizzle on screen.
The hunchback cripple
Vikram plays the role of hunchbacked cripple in I, which seems to be taken from the classic prose The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Vikram's make up for this particular role is top notch as it is very difficult to spot the actor behind all the scales and burn marks. The actor seems to have fully immersed himself into the role as he emotes brilliantly with his eyes.
It was rumoured that Chiyaan will be donning werewolf's avatar. But after watching the teaser, one can safely say that the character is more like the Beast from the fairy tale The Beauty and The Beast. With horns, hairy body, whiskers, sharp teeth and pad foot, Vikram looks deadly as the beast.
