Well known international make-up artist Vance Hartwell, popular for his work in films such as "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "Shutter Island", has been roped in by the makers of actor NTR's next yet-untitled Telugu movie.
Hartwell has been brought on board to take care of NTR's look in the film.
"NTR plays three characters in the film, and Hartwell has been roped in to specially take care of his look for one role. He has been flown down from Los Angeles to take the measurement for a facial mask. This is the first time in his career that NTR will be seen using prosthetic," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Hartwell and NTR met on Saturday and spent quality time together.
To be directed by Bobby, the regular shooting of the film will start from February 15. NTR will join the sets at the month end.
"Hartwell will join the sets from March. It's going to be a very special look for NTR, and hence, the makers are leaving no stone unturned," the source said.
Produced by NTR Arts, the film also stars Raashi Khanna as one of the leading ladies. The second heroine is yet to be finalised.
