Shall really miss you subbu RIP . There was something rare about Subbu, When he started in our industry, he was the only one who could do a clean contemporary look. Any face that he put his art to always had a fresh feel to it. It was almost as though you needed Subbu to know what your true potential was. He lost his battle to cancer today but his work will endure the test of time. Subbu was a real genius. He was always the easiest person to work with, had a very quiet demeanour but was always sure of what he was doing. I’ve known him for a long time and I could always count on him. This is a great loss to me and our industry . He was always there for me, even when I didn’t ask. @subbu28 me
