Naachiyar slated to the hit the screens today, features GV in the role of a slum dweller who sells fruits for a living. Prakash says that it is a role that is unlike anything he has played in his career so far and working alongside Jyothika, whom he considers one of his best co-stars yet.
The role required Prakash to undergo a drastic image makeover. He plays a young boy with a clean shaven look and three shades darker than his original self. Popular make-up artist Pattanam Rasheed from Kerala was brought on board for this make-over. His hair colour had to be changed to reddish brown and eyes had to look red through most portion of the film (some seeds were put in his eyes to make them look red). GV says that this process was very painful but the overall experience was wonderful.
On the first day of the set, nobody recognized Prakash in his new look. It was really funny. When I walked up on the set for shoot, nobody realized it was me. Thats how different I looked and all credit to Bala sir for visualizing me in a totally different avatar. said GV to the media
