Do you know how Aamir Khan turned to Peekay and how many efforts and people were there behind how PK looked? We know Aamir Khan as Mr Perfectionist also, but do you know what makes him sticking to this tag? Every time when his new movie's buzz lands to various platforms, there lands his new look that defines his character and makes us connecting to it. PK is no exception to it. Find below how!

1. PK...The Character

Peekay was neither an ordinary to define easily, nor belonged to just a profession that giving him the look of a doctor, engineer or advocate work. He character was clueless, which was nowhere seen or met. What can be said know was just his innocence and childlike nature.

Aamir Khan was excited about the role right from the beginning of the project PK, but the challenges to give that character a physical form was not a piece of cake.

To match up, his wierd look did great that involves everything from his body language to hair style to eyes to ears. Every part was decided to be different yet connectable, with no overdone.

2. Aamir Khan's Hairdo for PK: Flat Hairstyle

Hairdo is something that can impressively change the entire look of someone. These days not only girls, but guys are also seen opened for experiments like using gels and flaunting different styles like spikes, etc.

Aamir Khan wanted long hair for his PK look, but they didn't go with what PK, the character was demanding. They indeed gave him a warrior feel to his appearance. He tried various from long to golden to boyish, but nothing worked. Some different coloured locks of hairs were also used, but that looked wierd. After roaming from one to another corner, they decided that what plain hairdo was doing, nothing worked that good. Finally, flat hair with not too much difference were decided for Peekay.

3. Raised Eyebrows

The eyebrows of Aamir Khan were given a tilted shape to ease him expressions, and the brilliant actor has played with them very well.

4. Curly Eyelashes

Have you ever noticed the ears of Aamir Khan? They are straight and give him a naughty and sometimes wicked look.

7. Less Make-up Suited PK

This is the time where actors use every bit of make-up and accessory, giving them a dramatic look, but Aamir Khan and team PK chose to go opposite. PK donned minimal makeup and remained simple.

8. Gentle Face with All Above

With all above, the right posture was the last needed. Where now it was all set from surface, something was still missing. Aamir Khan tried from gazing eyes to multiple blinks. Even with eyebrows, he made experiments for expressing through his face.

Other than how PK looks, how is his own style of seeing the world and reacting to others was also important. Eyes speak the most after body language, so how they mark their presence was also a matter of brainstorm. Should PK see suspiciously...or vividly or with gazing eyes? As his character was of a curious one, the widely opened eyes went the most with him.

Ultimately, with tilted-raised eyebrows, widely opened eyes with no blink worked. The conflict of big eyes and a gentle face looked wonderful. Everything looked fitted with PK now.

9. What about the Lips?

Every effort had come to an end till then. Flat hair, sharp eyebrows, curly eyelashes, green eyes lens, popped out ears, and less make-up! What about the lips?
Aamir Khan ate Paan in throughout the shooting of PK: Peekay. That gave his lips a red color and presented a visually separating face.

10. Costumes of PK: Satrangi Atrangi Kapde

The costumes of Peekay was also not an easy decision. Some team members went out to streets and searched for people with visually odd casuals. They purchased or exchanged with new clothes and brought colorful clothes for PK. Aamir Khan tried many and a pattern got set for his costumes, which was "Satrangi-Atrangi" that suited best with the colorful yet deep character of Peekay.
