The unique thing about Dansh’s character is that it required a lot of patience because it used to take two-and-a-half hours to put on the makeup. He needed to sit in one place and then a heavy costume. With all that, he had to do action scenes as well.

The makeup used to be very time-consuming and involved prosthetics. There used to be a complete transformation in his look. He used to have different colored lenses for his eyes, a prosthetic covering of a different shade for his scalp, and a base layer for his face that did not match the usual skin color so as to differentiate him from a regular human.
A proper session took place before he started playing Dansh where a live cast was taken and a model of his face and neck was made. There were proper prosthetic and makeup experts who did this.
