Preity Zinta’s superhit calling and self-defense drive
Social media feeds in the last two weeks have been spammed with her images. She has been spotted everywhere! Preity Zinta is back with a bang and is in the news. She was spotted last week at actress Iulia Vantur’s (Salman Khan’s rumoured love interest) iftaar and Ramazan Eid party. Later, she was spotted at the premiere of Salman’s Eid release, Tubelight, and soon after, the pretty lady was in Pune launching a new device, Kavach Safety, for women. It has been the busiest of times since her marriage in 2016.
The pretty lady was in Bengaluru last week to inaugurate Advanced Beauty and Cosmetic Clinic, a Chennai-based cosmetic clinic’s new outlet. “I am back in business this year, I am going to events, cutting ribbons! Whoever calls me, I’m sure I’m going to be lucky for them, and I’m back to doing a movie,” enthuses Preity, who will be seen opposite Sunny Deol in Bhaiyyaji Superhitt later this year, in October. “It’s an action comedy. It’s a very funny film, I have now been dubbing for it and I’m going crazy laughing,” says a highly animated Preity.
Dressed in a boho white top, black pants and golden stilettos, Preity looked every bit the star, and was in a great mood, considering the cool weather. Talking about her role, she reveals, “I think people are going to be surprised to see me in this. I have never played such an earthy role. I have always played Muslim roles in films such as Veer Zara, Hero — Love Story of a Spy and Mission Kashmir. I have never played roles with sindoor, sari and a bindi. And the character... she’s like a full-on pataka (firecracker) and God help you if you come across my character in real life (laughs) because she’s quite crazy. But I had lot of fun shooting for it!” While the film post-production is on, the actress has also taken on the ambitious project of launching the Kavach Safety (mobile emergency response) device across to reach out to an estimated 50,000 women.
