The only thing we think of when we see a big star is his personality, his aura and charisma and drool over it. But in reality, the aura that we see is not just the individual’s. There is a team which is at constant work and that contributes significantly to the star’s charisma.
Some groups have brought that up and now say makeup Banu deserves Padma Shri. To those of you who don’t know her, Banu Bashyam is the only female makeup artist in India who has worked with many biggies. Her list includes even superstar Rajnikanth.
Banu Deserves Padma Shri
Banu was the key person behind Rajini’s three looks in ‘Robo’. So now, some are saying if Rajini gets Padma Vibhushan, the person who did makeup to him should get Padma Shri. This can be deemed as a tongue-in-cheek statement but yes, the credit definitely goes to Banu as well.
She also did magical make-up for Surya, Jyothika, Trisha, Vikram, Nayanthara, Asin and many other. In Sivaji movie also she only gave the make-over for Rajinikanth. She did the make-up artist course in US and later she started to work with the hero and heroines with the directors support.
