It was not easy for actress Aahana Kumra to get ready for her role in the recently released web show "Betaal".
She almost took 2 hours everyday to wear prosthetics before getting into her character's look.
"When I signed the show, I didn't know I'll have a scar on my face and I'll have to wear prosthetics for 45 - odd days of shoot.
I didn't know until then what wearing prosthetics was like.
Once the shoot started, I realised how careful an artiste needs to be while wearing prosthetics.
Firstly, I couldn't sweat.
We were shooting in 45 degrees temperature and it was an army show.
There was heat, dust and sometimes it would rain and there was thick mist.
But I had to make sure that my make - up wasn't spoilt, or else it would take another two hours to do it all over again.
I learnt a lot on the job because of the prosthetic, " Aahana shared.
Aahana's make - up was done by the renowned make - up artistes Rebecca Butterworth and Karolina Kuzniak.
She added: "It's a lengthy process that requires a lot of patience.
It would take sticking, painting and other things.
"The first day when I walked out of my vanity, everyone stopped and stared at me.
It felt uncomfortable with people looking at your face in a way that something was wrong with it.
But I got used to it.
I don't think that (her look) ever affect my performance.
I was only focused on getting the shot right.
It was very liberating, because for once, as an actress, I wasn't worried about how I looked.
When I saw the end result, I was blown.
It's rare that you see actresses sport a look like that.
