Make up artist turned produce Subhash Singh has been doing Juhi Chawla’s make up for over 18 years now so of course he is still doing her make up for Chalk N Duster, his first film as a producer!
The veteran make up artist and talented actress have a wonderful rapport and with such a long friendship it is no surprise that Juhi agreed to be a part of Subhash Singh’s first film, she has full faith in him. Apparently Before the shoot for Chalk N Duster commenced, she cheekily asked him if he would be doing her makeup in the film, Subhash gave her a nod and said,
“Ye bhi koi poochne ki baat hain?”
