Remembering the 'ultimate make-up artist', Bachchan tweeted a beautiful picture with Juker and wrote: "Pandhari Juker...no more...the Master, the Icon, the Ultimate make up artist...passes away...He touched hundreds of faces and enhanced them...but it was the hundreds of hearts that he touched that endeared us to him ...Prayers, (sic)."
Calling him 'the Godfather of make-up in the industry, Abhishek Bachchan in his tweet wrote: "RIP Pandhari Dada. The Godfather of make-up in the industry. Was blessed that I, at least got to sit on his make-up chair just once. It was an honour and a dream. He’ll make the heavens look even more beautiful now. Condolences and prayers to his family and students (sic)."
Pandhari Juker in an interview revealed that he got into the film industry by an 'accident'. He worked as a make-up artist because of his father's illness. Juker worked with filmmakers like B.R. Chopra, Kamal Amrohi, Yash Chopra, Raj Kapoor and others.
