In the post, she celebrated five years of her winning the National Film Award for Best Makeup for the historical epic Nanak Shah Fakir based on the life of prophet Guru Nanak; the founder of Sikhism.

“Today’s day marks a beautiful memory of a lifetime. Receiving my first National Award from the hands of stalwarts like Late Hon’ble President of India – Shri Pranab Mukherjee and Late Shri Arun Jaitley Ji. The feeling still is surreal even after 5 years… #NanakShahFakir @marktroy #damakeuplab,” Preetisheel recently posted on her Instagram.
