She has made history, becoming the first woman of color – a British Indian – to win the title of Miss Great Britain. Now she has made all the way to Bollywood, already starring in upcoming movie, Balaji Telefilms Shor in the City co-starring the Hollywood actor Sendhil Ramamuthry. Preeti Desai is her name, newly working her way up B-Town’s lane, all thanks to advice imparted to her by the famous SRK, yes THE SRK!
True indeed, as sources suggest, is the fact that London based Preeti Desai initially considered coming down to India to give acting a shot, because that is what – ‘The Badshah of Bollywood’ – Shah Rukh Khan himself suggested to her. Apparently Shah Rukh knows a family friend of Preeti, through whom he met her, which is when he advised her to come down to India and give acting a shot, recommending that she join Anupam Kher’s acting classes called ‘Actor Prepares’.
Already having her own share of the celebrity life, former ‘Miss Great Britain’ seriously considered working on the thought and next thing you know, Shor in the City happens.
