Preity Zinta was, not too long ago, one of the superstars of Bollywood. Then she suddenly withdrew herself from cinema and entered the cricket world as an entrepreneur. Later, she made her presence felt on the small screen. But, off late, she vanished again.
Wondering where the bubbly heroine has gone? Well, she has been busy with her home production Ishq In Paris. And given that she has rather superstitiously avoided announcing more projects till Ishq In Paris releases, a lot of producers are nervously awaiting her approval.
Bhaiyyaji Superhit and Jai Ramji are both films which have been offered to Preity, but she has refrained from signing on the dotted line, as she wants to take her career decisions after much serious thought. “Preity will be returning after a long hiatus and she wants to choose her projects with care,” says an insider. Neeraj Pathak, director of Bhaiyyaji Superhit has already signed on Ameesha Patel, but is still hopeful of getting Preity on board as well. “Preity liked the idea a lot though we are yet to sign her. In principle she should be on, but let her say ‘yes’ before we make any announcements,” he says.
Jai Ramji, on the other hand, has been set aside by director Tigmanshu Dhulia, who’s busy with the sequel to Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster. “But I adore Preity as an actress. I was first associated with her during Dil Se and have always liked her. I will certainly approach her for the film,” he said.
Hmmm... Not bad, considering that Preity is long lost from the silver screen, people are still eager to watch her again and filmmakers are waiting to sign her up.
