There is a significant line of difference between what you see in an image and what you see in reality. The best example for that is the entertainment industry where stars look so different in front of the camera and when outside. Here is one example that will convince you all.
The man you see in the picture is Sundeep Bharadwaj and originally he happens to be a well known model and former alumni of National School of Drama. The person you see on the right is the actor who essayed the role of the dreaded forest brigand Veerappan.
Well, connecting the dots would have been easy for you because it is none other than Sundeep himself post makeup. This goes to show how some things are hard to believe but are made possible by the filmmakers. This transformation is surely commendable.
