Playing a blind person’s role is the toughest as we don’t know how they see the world. One can only imagine and then portrait the character or learn from someone who is really blind to the world.
Jamie Foxx in his movie “Ray” perfectly fits to the role of Ray Charles who is a blind musician. He went blind for each day by using a special covering that shuts his eyes for more than 14 hours.
Not only this, he also chipped his teeth and lost weight to get into the shoes of Charles.

Anushka Sharma And Alia Bhatt
The two strong and beautiful divas of the Bollywood never stay behind when it comes to show the world what they’ve got. Their bubbly personality might hides their strength but it cannot hide their efforts.
Anushka in NH10 did very well but for that she went under depression. She said the toughest of all scenes of the movie was one where she was being molested on the highway.
She felt depressed after shooting for the scenes as it was hard for her to accept how humans are treated. Same was with Alia Bhatt in Udta Punjab where she played the role of a girl who has been abused and gang raped.
The actress confessed the scene was torture and she just wanted to go home anyhow after completing the shooting.

Titanic star Leonardo slept in animal carcasses, ate raw bison, and went into freezing rivers for the role in ” The Revenant.” He won Oscar in 2016 for the movie.
Bollywood actor Nawazuddin also take his character very seriously and we have the proof. In Raman Raghav 2.0, Siddiqui played a role of serial killer and that hits his mental health hard.

Halle was homeless before she got her first break. Jungle Fever was a life changer for her and to made it a real blockbuster hit she didn’t bath for 2 weeks.
