Answer by Raakhee Venugopal:
I’d put all my money on Indian actor Kamal Hassan. He’s the ultimate master of disguise! In the same movie, he acted as a goon and a circus midget way back in 1989!
How he managed to act like a dwarf is a closely guarded secret. And no, this movie didn’t have as many SFX as is the case today.
Okay, so the face is the same, despite the height being halved. Then look at this movie where he played father and son…
If I had seen the elderly gentleman on the right walking on the street, I wouldn’t have identified him as Kamal Hassan for the life of me!
The man and his different identities! Yeah, it’s all him. 100%!!
The man blends into his character so much that it’s difficult to believe that it was the same guy who acted like some other person just 5 minutes ago! He changes his mannerisms, his body language, his gait, everything! He is truly one of the best actors in Indian cinema today. Period!
