If there's one thing that Shah Rukh Khan knows very well, it is how to reinvent himself for a movie. With two big films slated to release this year ("Raees" and "Fan"), King Khan is sporting two totally different looks in his movies — well, actually, three.
In his upcoming film "Fan," he plays the dual role of a successful Bollywood actor, as well as a star-struck fan of the superstar. His character Gaurav, the fan, is young, lanky and dresses like a college kid in denim jeans and button-down shirts, while his other character is the tuxedo-sporting, slick and suave superstar Aryan Khanna — two diametrically opposed looks.

With over two-and-a-half decades in the film industry, looking different per the demand of the script is the least this mega-star can do. He's known to work extra hard on his get-up for movies such as "Don," "Don 2," "Fan" and now "Raees."
The Rahul Dholakia-directed film is said to be based on the life of an Ahmedabad-based underworld don of the 1980s, Abdul Lateef Shaikh, who was killed in a shootout with the police. "Raees" is the story of a cruel and clever bootlegger who gets in trouble when a brave cop starts chasing him. In the film, Shah Rukh Khan plays an underworld don, and Pakistani actress Mahira Khan plays his wife. "Raees" also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Farhan Akhtar in pivotal roles.
His virtual fans started going gaga over his new oily, tanned body and kohl-trimmed-eyes-look after the actor revealed this new avatar on Instagram March 16 with the caption "Oily tanned scruffy and Kohl eyed Raees shoot."
It was rumored that the filmmakers were going to rope in Hollywood makeup artists to work on his desired look, which included a non-prosthetic scar on the face. It is not clear yet who is behind this pathani kurta wearing, bespectacled avatar, but it is definitely working for the actor! Let us know in the comments what you think of the look. Yay or nay?
