Lara Dutta's transformation into iconic Indian politician and former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi is drawing widespread praise from audiences. 

Many could not detect the actor in "Bell Bottom" trailer which dropped earlier this week.

The makeup artist of the Akshay Kumar starrer film, Vikram Gaikwad, was showered with praise online for pulling off Lara's jaw-dropping transformation. 

He is the four-time winner of the National Film Award for Best Make-Up Artist. 

One Twitter user said, "In the whole trailer, I was looking for Lara Dutta; after 5 days I found out Indira Gandhi's role is played by Lara."

Lara said in an interview, "It took me three hours in the morning before I could be on the set and one hour to take everything off. It was a long process but worth it."

The actor's father was the former Prime Minister's personal pilot, according to reports. 

The film's official synopsis reads, "Amongst multiple heinous airplane hijacks, India was made to face another such challenge in 1984. BellBottom, a RAW agent played by Akshay Kumar sees through the plan and thus, begins India's first covert operation. A story based on true events, led by BellBottom, that went on to create one of the most defining moments of the country."

The film is slated for release on August 19, 2021.
