Preity Zinta is the kind of beauty who comes with brains. She did her graduation in criminal psychology from St Bedes College , Mumbai University and later on made a valid career choice by moving on to films. Her father was an officer in the Indian army and unfortunately succumbed to a fatal car accident which also ended up injuring Preity’s mother. The Zinta girl also had her fair share of accidents. She narrowly escaped death twice. Her 1st near death experience was when she had to witness an explosion while at a Temptation’s concert in Colombo. 2nd one came in a more severe form as the tsunami on Indian Ocean. Preity has been constantly writing columns for several magazines and the BBC news too on the stand of women in India, Bollywood and its changing phases, etc issues. 2001 had been exceptionally lucky for Preity. That was the year that gave her the 1st ever foreign tour, rather, world tour of her career. This she went on with Anil Kapoor, Amir Khan Aishwarya Rai and Gracy Singh.
Of late Preity has seen too many ups and downs to start with. For example her relationship with long time love Ness Wadia didn’t turn out that too well. In fact the poor performance of her IPL team King’s XI Punjab hampered the emotional interests between the two, says rumor. There too, the constant change in the cricket team’s leaders and the over involvement in Yuvraj Singh’s affairs brought Preity to some cheap limelight. As if all this was not messy enough, in came the extra-marital mistress accusation. Shekhar Kapoor’s wife, Suchitra Krishnamurthy blamed Preity for her divorce saying that Preity unethically seduced the then married Shekhar into having an affair with her. Of course Preity came up with denial saying that it was hard for famous people like her to be laughed at as some people try to gain fame at their expense.
She started off with a dream cameo as it was opposite the great Shah Rukh Khan. Dil Se won hearts all over for its relevance and simplicity in storyline. It was epic and kick started what we may call a lucrative and fluid film career for Preity. Later she did other super hit movies like Kal Ho Na Ho, Veer Zaara, Kabhi Alvida Naa kehna , etc with SRK too. Salaam Namaste, with Saif ali Khan, was another milestone in Preity’s career. Her acting now is way more diversified and praiseworthy. Mission Kashmir too , is a part of that group of films that critics believe have helped Preity to develop her skills as an actress. The Farhan Akhtar venture Dil Chahta Hai and Koi Mil Gaya are her hit films too. Her favorite directors are Yash Chopra, Karan Johar and Rakesh Roshan.
