Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan will be playing the role of an old lady in a few scenes in Vipul Shah’s upcoming release, Action Replay. The film is said to be a remake of the Hollywood hit, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. The Bollywood version will star Akshay Kumar and Randhir Kapoor.
Well-known Hollywood make-up artist, Paul Pattison has been hard at work to give Ash a full makeover. He is known for styling Mel Gibson for Braveheart and Tom Cruise for Mission Impossible. Director, Vipul Shah says that Ash has to spend about 4-6 hours day for the make-up to be applied perfectly. “She was extremely co-operative. It’s a look people have never seen her in before.” he says.
The film has music composed by Pritam and is expected to be a family entertainer and not an action flick as the title implies.
