When Anupam Kher's mom didn't recognise him
The make-up in his new film had given the veteran actor a new avatar

It is believed a mother never fails to recognise her children, even from a distance. But today's make-up techniques can make things very difficult and something similar happened to Anupam Kher and his mom.

The actor is playing a double role in his upcoming film Zokkomon - in one role, he looks himself, but for the other his look has been completely changed with the help of make-up experts from France.

"I was happy to see that during a trial show of the film, my mother did not get to know that the other actor is also me. In the interval, I told her it's some Russian actor and she actually believed it. So that proved that it looks very real," the 56-year-old said.

Zokkomon produced by Walt Disney Studios and written and directed by Satyajit Bhatkal is slated for release this Friday.
