The bubbly actress Preity Zinta, who kick started her career 13 years ago with Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se, is all set to open her own production company, PZNZ Media. After a brief lull from the silver screen and sparing three years from her career to join the IPL bandwagon, the dimpled beauty will soon be in charge of the camera, not only facing it.
Zinta has recently hosted the Guinness World Records reality show ‘Ab India Todega’ for Colors TV, and will soon start filming for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s gangster flick Jai Ramji, touted to be her comeback film wherein she will co-star with Irrfan Khan and Arjun Rampal. Currently, her production company is readying a project under the direction of Prem Soni, whom she had guest starred in his debut film Main Aur Mrs. Khanna. Her first film will be a breezy romantic comedy with her starring as the female lead while she is in talks with several top names to fill in for the male lead. Although Soni’s debut was a debacle at the box office, Zinta is not at all threatened stating that “Even Imtiaz Ali’s first film, Socha Na Tha, wasn’t a blockbuster but today everyone wants to work with him.”
Apart from Zinta, other Bollywood beauties such as Sushmita Sen, Dia Mirza and Ameesha Patel are also venturing into film production. Lara Dutta had also released her home production Chalo Dilli last April, which found minor success at the box office. Here’s hoping that the other ladies will find a wider audience for their respective films!
