January 2018 saw the National-Award winning makeup and prosthetic designer Preetisheel Singh curate the look for Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat. In January 2019, she came up with the look of Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray in the movie Thackeray directed by Abhijit Panse and presented by Sanjay Raut.
In fact, last year she had four successes in movies such as Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, Umesh Shukla’s 102 Not Out, Anubhav Sinha’s Mulk and Sriram Raghavan’s Andhadhun. Now she has a tough trail to follow. Will she be able to maintain the success streak this year? By the looks of it, the feat seems possible.
The lady is soon going to be talked about all over again for various looks she has designed for Ali Abbas Zafar’s film Bharat, John Abraham in Robbie Grewal’s RAW (Romeo Akbar Walter), Vivek Anand Oberoi in Omung Kumar’s film PM Narendra Modi, all the old and young looks in Nitish Tiwari’s Chhichhore, and for Southern actor Ataharvaa Murali in the Tamil film Boomerang.
And as if that isn’t enough, her work will be showcased in many more flicks such as Kangana Ranaut-starrer Panga directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Nawazuddin Siddiqui-Radhika Apte-starrer Raat Akeli Hai directed by Honey Trehan, and Om directed by Sartaj Singh Pannu (earlier, Preetisheel bagged the National Award for her first film Nanak Shah Fakir helmed by Sartaj).
And then there is the multi-starrer Housefull 4 having Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, Riteish Deshmukh, Kriti Kharbanda, Bobby Deol, Pooja Hegde and Rana Daggubati as the new laugh-riot team in this Sajid Nadiadwala production, directed by Farhad Samji.
The list doesn’t end here either. After working with Bhansali Productions for Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat, Preetisheel has just been signed for the makeup and prosthetics for two more of their projects. Attagirl.
