Saat khoon maaf is a forthcoming bollywood thriller, drama and a black comedy film. Vishal Bharadwaj is the director of the movie and Priyanka Chopra is starring the lead role in the movie. ” Saat Khoon Maaf ” is a story of an anglo-Woman who goes on to kill all her seven husband. In this film, Priyanka Chopra’s character ages from 20-65 and will be seen going through seven different age makeovers as wife of seven different aged men at different stages of her life, for which prosthetics had to play a heavy part. And for that, director Vishal Bhardwaj has hired renowned Academy Award winning, Hollywood special make-up effects artist, Greg Cannom of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), to create those seven different looks for Priyanka’s role in the film and out of those the most challenging one was that of the 65-year-old woman, for which the make-up team has used Priyanka’s grandmother’s photo to try and make her look as close to her as possible.

During the whole process, Priyankahas literally not eaten or not drunk anything for hours thereby starving herself during the shoot that involved prosthetics. Firstly, the make-up takes five long hours at least, to get right. So, it would begin at some wee hour in the morning to get it done by 10 or 11 am. Post that, till the shoot ended, Priyanka could not eat anything, as that would damage the make-up, but she pulled it through because on screen it was looking good and she trusts Vishal and the final results were so compelling, that even Priyanka’s own father couldn’t recognise her.Vishal also wanted Priyankato put on some weight to fit the bill of the character. The film, which will be showcased at Berlinale, is the big screen adaptation of Ruskin Bond’s short story “Susannah’s Seven Husbands”.

From a 21-year-old to a 65-year-old, Priyanka Chopra portrays almost every crucial stage in a woman’s life in her new thriller ” Saat Khoon Maaf”. But she says stepping into the shoes of a 40-plus character was the toughest as she couldn’t connect to the age group. “The 20s was my age, so it was fine and not so difficult; 30s was something I could expect and somehow imagined. The 50s and 60s were still easier to do because you become a lot more older so your body language is like that. “But the 40s was the middle period, so it was very difficult. You are not very old but you are not very young either. So to get that correctly was a task,” Priyanka, 28, told in an interview.

“It’s a very entertaining and wicked movie. It’s amusing and not serious. It’s a satire which makes it very interesting,”.”Saat Khoon Maaf” is slated for a Feb 18 release. The film’s promos hit the screens some time back and have created enough curiosity thanks to Priyanka’s sinister look and menacing tone.
