This week, she has recreated that look for actor Ravi Dubey for Sabse Smart Kaun; a game show on Star Plus, which aims to test people’s common sense. Ravi is donning various looks for the show’s promotions, one of them being Alauddin Khilji and another one of yesteryears’ villain Ajit.

The Jamai Raja actor recently shared his Khilji look on Instagram with a caption, “the magician behind the look is the awesome Preetisheel.”

The transformations Preetisheel carried out with Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s looks in Padmaavat had the industry and media hailing her as the undisputed No.1 makeup, hair and prosthetic designer.

However, it can be noted that this was not the first time she worked on a historical. Her work in the pre-Mughal epic Nanak Shah Fakir bagged her the coveted National Film Award for Best Makeup. Re-released amidst controversy this year, the film has once again created ripples.

The lady’s work also received abundant praise for the recently released Amitabh Bachchan-Rishi Kapoor starrer 102 Not Out. Her talent will soon be showcased in films like the Harshvardhan Kapoor-starrer Bhavesh Joshi Superhero and also in Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer Thackeray, where Siddiqui plays the role of Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray.

Got some quick and controlled news write-ups done for my new PR client Rakshak Sahni this week. Rakshak was seen in Ekta Kapoor’s Kkavyanjali on Star Plus earlier, and is now going to debut in a Hollywood film called Eastern Crimes. The makers are in talks with Peter Weir (director of The Truman Show and Dead Poets Society to direct the movie.)

Pankit Thakker returns with Dharampatni

Pankit Thakker, the blue-eyed boy of Indian television, who was loved as ‘The Champ’ in the Star One daily soap ‘Dill Mill Gayye’, will now be seen playing a pivotal role in another mega daily soap titled ‘Dharampatni’ on Imagine TV from this week.

The story is inspired from the times shared by Mahatma Gandhi and his wife Kasturba, before Gandhiji emerged as the Father of the Nation.


Pankit, who plays the role of the eldest of three brothers, is super excited. “It’s a challenging role, and I’ve been working on my look, style, personality and diction for it. I’ve even put on a lot of weight to get into the skin of the character. I hope the audience appreciates my efforts this time as well,” says the versatile young gun.

Earlier, apart from ‘Dill Mill Gayye’, Pankit has charmed the television community with memorable characters in many successful shows like ‘Kabhi Sauten Kabhi Saheli’ and ‘Kumkum – Pyara Sa Bandhan’ (Star Plus), ‘Tum Bin Jaaoon Kahaan’ (Zee TV), ‘Special Squad’ and ‘India Calling’ (Star One). Lets see what ‘Dharampatni’ has in store for him now.
