After vanishing from planet Bollywood for a while, Preity Zinta is back in Mumbai. Having spent time travelling and with family and friends across Europe and the US, the actress told Subhash K Jha, “How nice to know that I was missed. I feel good when people ask where I have been. No, I hadn’t gone for good. I basically follow my heart. If I want to do something, I go for it, no matter what the repercussions. I had been travelling to America, London and Europe for a little less than a month.”
Rumours abound that Preity went travelling to recover from her broken heart. To this she laughed, “I needed a break and I took one. Of course, I’ve gone through a break-up, but that’s personal. The only reason I speak to the press about what’s happening in my life is because I’m linked with the wrong men. Now, I want to work so hard that people discuss my professional life rather than my personal life. You can invite people to your home but you don’t take them to your bedroom. I’ve to preserve a certain part of me away from the limelight.”
Preity recently spent a lot of time with her brother and his daughter in LA, as well as spending time with best friend, Shagun Khanna and her daughter in London. There she was accompanied by Malaika Arora, Seema Khan, Surily Goel and Gauri Khan who were in London at the time. With a further two weeks in Europe where Preity was accompanied by Surily Goel in Paris she has definitely been jet — setting her way back to Mumbai.
Confessing that her recent break-up with Ness Wadia had invited curiosity due to the long duration of their relationship she was philosophical in commenting “But then that’s life. It’s filled with unpredictable twists and turns.”
And what of her association with the IPL? Is that being given up? “I’ll only be there for the matches as opposed to being constantly involved with the IPL activities.” The actress stated. “The first two years, I gave all of myself to IPL. I’m on the verge of signing two new films with very big banners. But before that, Main Aur Mrs Khanna with Salman will be out. Though I’ve a cameo in the film, it is an interesting role.”
All we can say is Welcome Back Preity!
