In the glitzy realm of Bollywood, where transformations are an integral part of storytelling, one name shines as a master of metamorphosis: Preetisheel Singh D’souza. With Akshay Kumar’s remarkable portrayal as the divine messenger of Lord Shiva in the highly anticipated sequel, OMG 2, Preetisheel’s artistry takes center stage, leaving the audience captivated and amazed.
Preetisheel’s prowess in crafting astonishing looks for characters has been recognized with a National Award, a testament to her unparalleled talent. Her journey has been studded with milestones, from the regal aesthetics of Gangubai Kathiawadi to the grandeur of Padmaavat, the gritty realism of Mulk, and the captivating enigma of Haider and Rangoon. With an impressive repertoire that extends to movies like Bunty Aur Babli 2, Housefull 4, Chup: Revenge of the Artist, Pushpa: The Rise, and the eagerly awaited Ghoomer and Jawan, Preetisheel’s makeup and prosthetic studio, Da Makeup Lab, stands tall as Bollywood’s premier transformation destination.
The synergy between Akshay Kumar and Preetisheel has resulted in cinematic magic on multiple occasions. From the heartfelt drama of Brothers to the whimsical transformations in advertisements like Livguard, where Akshay effortlessly channeled the personas of Albert Einstein and Bruce Lee, their collaboration has been a journey of artistic exploration. Their partnership extended to films like Bachchan Pandey and Ram Setu, in addition to the blockbuster Housefull 4, where the iconic “Bala Bala, shaitaan ka saala” dance number resonated with fans.
Preetisheel’s artistic finesse reached its zenith as she crafted not one, but three distinct personas for Akshay in a Kurkure advertisement, portraying the roles of a son, father, and grandfather. The unique ability to transform Akshay Kumar into diverse characters is a testament to Preetisheel’s creative freedom and the actor’s commitment to his craft.
“Akshay not only entrusts me with creative freedom but also wholeheartedly immerses himself in his characters to make them truly stand out,” reflects Preetisheel. “His dedication complements my work, resulting in a harmonious blend of appearance and performance,” she adds, underscoring the synergy that elevates their collaborations.
In OMG 2, Akshay Kumar’s portrayal as the divine messenger of Lord Shiva has taken the industry by storm. Adorned with ash and draped in a traditional dhoti, his striking appearance, enhanced by dreadlocks that cascade to his knees, has left audiences awestruck. Beyond the visual splendor, the film delves into the Indian education system, tackling sensitive issues like sex education, exam pressures, and college admissions, all while weaving a tapestry of humor.
OMG 2 stands as a testament to Bollywood’s ability to deliver socially relevant messages through laughter, upholding the legacy of its predecessor while setting new benchmarks for cinematic comedy. As Akshay Kumar’s divine transformation graces the screen, Preetisheel Singh D’souza’s artistic touch enriches the narrative, ensuring that both appearance and performance seamlessly unite to create an unforgettable cinematic experience.
