Real to Reel, Anna hazare!

30 September 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Inspired by the life of Kisan Baburao Hazare aka Anna Hazare, writer-director-actor Shashank Udapurkar started scripting a biopic, Anna, three years ago. The physical transformation to look like the social activist started eight months before they started shooting. The film rolled last June and continued till July 2016.

He lost around 8 kgs to play the role of young Anna who was in the Army surviving on salads, oats and fruits. Later on he put on almost 12 kgs to like Anna of today. This dramatic transformation happened over a couple of months. Shashank also admits to not resorting to prosthetics but instead working hard to get the perfect look.

“My detailed interactions with Anna helped me with the prep, being a Mahrashtrian myself the lingo was not a problem,” he says, adding that when Anna saw the stills he complimented Shashank saying he looked a lot like him.
