Speaking about the magnetic appeal of the legendary actors, Preetisheel Singh says, “I was a baby when they were shining bright and they are still ruling hearts. So yes, you got to toughen up and think beyond the aura they exude. Designing their looks was a hard task. More so, as I was aware that combined with their talent, the looks would go way beyond visual appeal.”

“Plus, at their age and stature, it takes a lot of patience to sit and allow so much makeup to happen and then go out and perform. Even after all these years in the business of entertainment, their child-like enthusiasm and devotion to their art are awe-inspiring. Their energy and intensity are infectious and exhilarating, so much so that one can compare it with the current heartthrobs,” she adds.
