Preity Zinta shot to fame as the stimulating, cool, wet model in the Liril commercial. She also modeled for Perk and her dimpled smile won the hearts of millions. Preity noway allowed she’d be an actress. Kapoor saw her in the Liril marketable and liked her so important that he incontinently decided that the coming film he’d advertise would have her in the lead. Still,’Tara Rum Pum’ noway got made and is still pending since the director got veritably busy with his other systems.
But another offer soon came by, Kundan Shah’s Kya Kehna (2000). Though the film was the first, Preity had actually begun shooting for her first release which was Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se. (1998). The film was a megahit which won Preity accolades. Latterly Abbas-Mustan’s Soldier (1998) that too was a megahit at the box- office verified she was then to stay. Though Kya Kehna (2000) was her first film, but it released in 2000 and was the surprise megahit of 2000.
Her part in Dil Chahta Hai (2001) and Dil Hai Tumhara (2002) was appreciated and liked by all and that has made her an actress to reckon with in Bollywood. Her screen presence, charm and down to earth nature has made her the favorite actress of nearly all the directors and directors. With banners and flicks like Rakesh Roshan’s Koi. Mil Gaya (2003) with’Hrithik Roshan’, Nikkhil Advani’s Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003) starring Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan, and Jaya Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar’s Lakshya (2004) with Hrithik Roshan and Amitabh Bachchan, Atul Agnihotri’s Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa (2004) starring Salman Khan and Bhoomika Chawla, Yash Chopra’s Veer Zaara (2004) with Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukerji, Siddharth Anand’s Salaam Namaste (2005) with Saif Ali Khan, and Karan Johar’s Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006) with Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji, Preity has formerly made her place in the hearts of the public and also in Bollywood.

I lost my father when I was 13- times-old. He was a great man, my father, and veritably intelligent. I love him veritably much. I believe it’s veritably important that parents have a particular connection with their children. It helps kiddies feel more secure, have a feeling of family, makes them feel loved.
Whenever I came across commodity that told me, I wanted to be that. So it varied from an astronaut, airhostess, army girl, to truck motorist. Formerly, I wanted to be a nun-my mama wanted me to change seminaries after that.
I’m single and desperately looking for a good man in my life. I did have major crushes when I was youngish but no serious relationship.
I want to bring a change and do commodity new and different in my profession, but in the morning I will have to toe line, I want to be known as a pantomime not a star.
I’m proud to be part of moment’s Bollywood. I love dancing and lip synching to our songs.
To act, you must know pain. You must know what it means to be in love, what it means to be rejected.
You know what is the worst part about being an actress? It’s the pressure to look gorgeous all the time and to bear impeccably. But I am not perfect, nothing is.
Amusement can truly take a risk on your jitters. I mean we’ve to be larger than life. Worse, I have seen actors acting off the sets too.
On the changing face of Indian cinema”At one time I wondered if I was doing the right flicks, moment I know I’ve made the right choices. Indian cinema is changing, not step by step but by hops. New blood is coming in, mindsets are changing and our exposure to the world is ever- adding. I’m glad these positive changes are passing when I’m in the assiduity and not ten times from now.”
On love at first sight”It’s superficial to fall in love with someone looking at their face. To me I need to discover the person. I would noway look at someone and ejaculate-He’s the one!”
Love is always real and true love is indeed further real!
She’s veritably notorious because of his dimple.
