After mega success of Master, Preetisheel Singh D’Souza awaits Pushpa

It’s just been a few months since South superstar Vijay’s Master emerged a blockbuster in the Southern market. Pandemic times notwithstanding, the film went on to become a rage, setting the box-office on fire.

National Award-winning makeup and prosthetic look designer Preetisheel Singh D’Souza who had curated the look for Vijay in Master, has also worked on another superstar Allu Arjun’s look in the much-awaited Telugu movie Pushpa, where he plays a character called Pushpa Raj. The film is reported to be readied with dubbed versions in Malayalam, Tamil, Kannada and Hindi too.

Pushpa which is being planned in two parts (just like Baahubali), has Allu Arjun fans waiting with abated breath for its release. Its teaser has already generated humongous views on the net. The buzz and craze Allu Arjun’s getup and the film’s theme has received, has just kept growing bigger and bigger.

In fact, when the teaser of the film was released sometime ago, it broke popularity records set by teasers of films like Baahubali and Radhe Shayam on YouTube.

Preetisheel, who has also curated the look for the film’s heroine Rashmika Mandanna, has been feeling the heat.

“Sometimes it feels a bit unnerving, as expectations for Pushpa have hit the roof,” she says. “I hope the audience likes and appreciates my work this time round too,” she adds.

Preetisheel has earlier designed looks for various actors in very prominent Bollywood as well as Southern films. The list includes movies like Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat, Housefull 4, 102 Not Out, Chhichhore, Master, 24, Wild Dog, Thackeray, Andhadhun and Bala.

Apart from being the No. 1 hair, makeup and prosthetic look designer in Bollywood, she runs India’s premier outfit Da Makeup Lab along with her partner husband Mark D’Souza. The lab’s building is a landmark in the posh Versova locality of Mumbai.

“So just as we take care of our kin, it’s important to spare a thought, some love and food for their well-being too,” she adds. Her compassion is very touching indeed.
