Ishan Khatter, Shahid Kapoor's younger brother is set to step up as a lead actor in Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi's upcoming film 'Beyond The Clouds'.
Known for being a complete perfectionist and leaving no stone unturned to extract a formidable look and performance from his actors, Iranian auteur Majid Majidi - this time too - made sure his actors got into the skin of their characters.
Says an inside source, "To get the perfect look for the character, Majidi felt that Ishaan should sport some tattoos on his body. Along with the producers, he met a few tattoo artists before selecting one for the job. He also did several sittings with the artist to select the perfect design. Ishaan too spent time with them trying different patterns."
Ishaan will be seen sporting a barbed wire tattoo on his left arm and a scorpion tattoo on his neck. The positioning of the scorpion tattoo was also crucial to the story line of the film.
Furthermore, Ishaan talked about his appearance in the film. He said, "The process of finalising the look was incredibly detailed. I learnt a whole lot about Majidi sir's process during the look tests. He is extremely meticulous and every little change he makes adds immensely to the character."
The film is all about a beautiful brother and sister relationship to be portrayed on screen by Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishaan Khatter and Malavika Mohanan in the lead roles.
Produced by ZEE Studios and Eye candy films, the film is not a regular set up, but a trilingual made in three different languages that are Hindi, Tamil and English.
