    Which version of the film? What do you mean how he was made? How they made him appear as a dwarf? How was he conceived? It's really unclear what you're asking. – Andrew Martin Nov 27 '14 at 10:06

    I get your question because I have seen the movie. I have edited for everyone to understand. – Ankit Nov 27 '14 at 10:33

A number of techniques were involved for the portrayal of a normal man as a dwarf on the screen. For some shots the actor folded hi legs from feet to knees. For some static scenes his legs were hidden inside a trench. Special shoes had to be used when the character was shown walking. The movie's director has explained it all here.
