The trailer showed Dutt sporting a vintage rugged look in the film. His fur cape, armour, multiple tattoos and kohled eyes completed his overall look. In an interview with a news portal, stylist Naveen Shetty said that as soon as he was introduced to the world of Adheera, he knew that the look had to be intimidating. According to him, the idea was to convey, through his clothes, that this guy is eccentric and unpredictable. It helped that Dutt was game to experiment with his look, knowing that the right avatar would only aid in making Adheera an indelible villain.
Elaborating further, Naveen added that the actor wanted to go all out. It was an excruciating shoot and they would take an hour to lock the look daily. The stylist also stated that Dutt would shoot every day, wearing the armour that weighed 25 kilos. This was in addition to a lot of metal chains that he sported.
Shetty also went on to say that after several rounds of brainstorming, they locked a vintage rugged look for the actor in the film. The tattoos, he revealed, were Dutt’s idea. Vintage tie-and-dye scarves were used as towels for the character. According to the stylist, all this signifies the kind of man he is. He isn’t minimalistic; everything about him is edgy and over-the-top.
