Sidharth gets a Hollywood Style Makeover

Sidharth Malhotra recently became Tourism New Zealand’s Indian Ambassador. Sidharth is having a great time in New Zealand. Be it clicking selfies with Prime Minister John Key to jumping off a 300-meter building in an orange jumpsuit, Sidharth Malhotra, is making sure that his fans are updated about his latest tour.

Sidharth is clearly enjoying the perks of his latest title. Sidharth was also presented with the brand new rugby jersey of the All Blacks national team that he plans to show off now that he’s back in Mumbai. “My trip has been a mix of adventure sports and sightseeing,“ the actor tweeted from Wellington. “But the highlight was meeting the legendary Sir Richard Taylor at a Weta Workshop. Thanks for `Frodo’s ring’ from The Lord of the Rings.“

Sidharth was all ears when the fivetime Oscar-winning make-up artist shared his views on filmmaking, prosthetics and visual effects, during their meeting on Monday. “Will you redo my face for my next film?“ he requested the British artist. The Ek Villian actor, who couldn’t believe his eyes when Weta artists transformed him into an elf, with pointed ears like Orlando Bloom’s in the LOTR movies, revealed that he would love to play Aragorn in the Hindi remake of the popular trilogy. “I was stunned when I looked at myself in the mirror. It was my best makeover till date,“ he admitted. “Now, I’m ready for a battle to save Middle-earth with my armour in place.“

Sidharth is having a great time exploring the beautiful nation and interacting with fans.
