They don't call Aamir Khan - 'The Perfectionist Khan' for nothing. Recently, even when he had to dress up as a girl for a shoot, Aamir Khan gave it his all and patiently sat through the arduous hair and make-up procedure. Aamir Khan will be seen in his feminine avataar once again for a TV commercial.

“It’s a comedy of errors where Aamir plays himself, researching the role of a woman. So he dresses as a woman and visits his neighbour’s house, which leads to some funny instances,” reveals Mickey Contractor, the make-up artiste who has been responsible for Aamir’s transformation each of the four times. Aamir, who was shooting for PK in Jaipur recently, called Mickey there for a trial.

“We realised the wig wasn’t working, and we wanted a few other changes as well after that test,” recalls the make-up artiste. “So we came back and worked on it. On the day of the shoot, everything came together. Aamir was a bit irritated with the wig and the net that we stuck to the side. He had to shave at least twice a day, wear stockings, a bra and a woman’s costume.”

Mickey reveals that it took him two-and-a-half hours to get the actor ready for the shot. “I customised the base colour for him, but apart from that, I used regular products like eyeliners, eyeshadow and lipsticks. His eyes are his best feature; I enhanced them with a smokey look to make the brown colour of his eyes stands out. I curled his fake lashes, which added to his suffering,” he explains.
