Three time Oscar winner Greg Cannom has been hired to transform the looks of Shah Rukh Khan, India’s most recognizable star.

Preparations are now under way for a start of production in July this year on “Fan,” a new Khan vehicle being produced through Bollywood studio Yash Raj Films.

The story involves Khan playing with the notions of celebrity and will require many physical and facial changes.

The film is set for release on Aug. 14, 2015, a day before India’s Independence Day holiday. The date represents a shift away from a potential clash with an untitled Kabir Khan-directed star vehicle for muscle-man Salman Khan.

“Fan” is to be directed by Maneesh Sharma from a script by Habib Faisal. It will be produced by YRF’s Aditya Chopra.

Special make-up effects are to be supervised by Greg Cannom, nine-time Oscar nominee and three time winner for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (2008), “Mrs. Doubtfire” (1993) and “Dracula” (1992).
