NID grads design masks for Mahesh Bhatt’s Raaz 3
Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt, who are making Raaz 3, starring Bipasha Basu and Emraan Hashmi, have sought consultation from Ahmedabad’s National Institute of Design graduates to give the horror characters in his film a more realistic look. The film will have close-to-real horror characters whose faces will be made using silicon.
Rajiv Subbha, a Ceramic and Glass Design graduate of NID founded a startup company called ‘Dirty Hands’ along with his classmate Mamta Gautam. Both of them are working on Raaz 3 project. The designers will make a silicon face mask which could be worn by the actor who is playing the role of a demon. The design will help the film crew avoid the tedious process of face make-up for the character.
In addition to many other design activities, developing hyper realistic mannequins and body limbs is a unique expertise of the designers at Dirty Hands which is being incubated at NID’s incubation centre called National Design Business Incubator (NDBI).
Raaz 3 is being directed by Vikram Bhatt.
