All of you big fans of dimpled screen goddess Preity Zinta will be delighted to hear that she is planning her return to the silver screen. What may surprise you, though, is her choice of film and role.
“I can’t be doing the bubbly dimpled babe all my life,” said Preity on making her long-awaited comeback. The actress is reading scripts and reports say she is set to star in Mahesh Manjrekar’s film, White, a hard-hitting drama about a woman who goes through both dark and light experiences, right from her 20s to her 60s.
However, this is not a done deal because Preity tweeted just yesterday, “Just for the record I have not signed ” White !” Just read the script.”
We do hear that Preity was very pleased with the script upon reading it and told director Manjrekar as much. “At this stage of my career I need new challenges. Luckily, directors can see beyond my chirpy I’m-so-happy image.”
Manjrekar too made a comeback of sorts last year after a five-year hiatus from Hindi cinema with the gritty film City Of Gold. When asked about his project with Zinta, he promises, “I’ll finalize the project when I return to Mumbai.”
With Preity Zinta all set to impress in her new avatar, all of her fans wait with bated breath.
