Chennai: Getting into the character took a new meaning on the sets of forthcoming 3D suspense thriller `Pizza`, when the film`s `bad man` Arunoday Singh! The actor`s prosthetics in the film were so real and scary that the people around took him to be his character.

Arunoday plays a supernatural character in this eponymous remake of a Tamil blockbuster.

"One day I had to leave in a hurry post shoot, I thought I would remove my make-up after reaching home. But as I waved at the cabs, they would all slow down and then get so freaked out that they would zip off in a hurry," Arunoday said in an interview.

"The other commuters had to ask me to step back and remove my make-up as even they were unable to get the ride home because of me," he added.

Directed by debutant Akshay Akkineni, `Pizza` also features Akshay Oberoi, Parvathy Omanakuttan and Dipannita Sharma in lead roles.

The film, which is slated to release July 18, is jointly produced by Bejoy Nambiar and UTV Spotboy.
