Preity Zinta has been categorized as the sweet, bubbly Bollywood gal with adorable dimples. While she has managed to do an array of roles, it's the bubbly ones that stick on the minds of her fans most. By the looks of it, her comeback film Ishkq in Paris will revive the sweet and sassy actress in the Bollywood spotlight!
Preity has spent four years off the scene. While she worked closely with her cricket team Kings XI Punjab, her acting, modeling career was put on hold. There is no word as to what Preity was staying busy with and no one seems to care now that she's back on the scene and on the silver screen come October 5. Ishkq in Paris stars Preity across from Rhehan Malliek who is quite the handsome costar.
In the film, we hear Preity discuses her ideal man, to the point, while Rhehan is all about living for the night. "I love guys who are bang on and don't waste any time," Preity says. Rhehan Malliek says, "Strong advice - Don't get married, that's why I don't go beyond a night." The film's trailer, title, and backdrop sets us up for an unlikely romance.
Preity is excited about her comeback and is even more attached to this film because she is a producer and writer for it. This leading lady is about to start the media rounds; in the meantime she keeps us all posted with Twitter. "So excited to start ISHkQ IN PARIS soon! Been a long time since I've been in front of a camera. Too long! Time 2 get back into the groove!" was just one of Preity's excited tweets. She has also revealed via twitter, "And Yesss.. Salman will be a part of Ishkq In Paris & I am super excited !!! Wait n watch people 4 all fun cuz for now my lips are sealed!" Added star power is definitely going to help this film at the box office.
Ishkq in Paris is yet to be the attention of media, the exciting news still is Preity's return to cinema. She tells reporters that the Dalai Lama inspires her to continue to work. She recalls, "We were playing this Indian Premier League (IPL) match in Dharamshala... it was the last match and we lost. If we had won it, our team would have made it to the semi-finals. With a heavy heart, I accepted defeat. The Dalai Lama was present there. Next year, the same thing happened and I was very upset. The Dalai Lama, who was sitting beside me, said, 'It's okay, don't worry about it.' To which I said, 'Sir, with all due respect, it's not okay. I don't play to lose, but to win.' He said, 'If you play to win, you should play in your own field. I don't see you holding a bat, so how can you win this match." The same advice fairs in all aspects of her career and Preity continues to peddle one. In one encounter with the Dalai Lama, he said something profound, "I didn't want to address it at that point, but then I was like, 'Why not? Let's do it.' I got inspired again to work in a film. And then I met (director) Prem Raj and he said let's make this film. And I immediately said, 'Let's start writing it.' That's when we started writing the script in Dharamshala," Preity shares.
Preity Zinta has a renewed zealous and passion for her career, let's just hope Ishkq in Paris meets expectations.
