Preity Zinta is pretty much in love!

London, September 26, 2006 - Preity Zinta’s reputation as Bollywood’s talented and straight-talking glam girl has gone up a few more notches with her convincing performance in Kabhi Alvida Naha Kehana (KANK). Presently in London to promote her forthcoming big-ticket film Jaan-E-Man -- in which she appears along with Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar -- Zinta created a buzz when she talked about her love life with characteristic candor.
In a story aired by Starnews on Tuesday, the 32-year-old star confided that there indeed was a man in her life. What she would not reveal is his identity. Speaking in guarded tones, she said it was extremely important to pursue an independent life and career after marriage. Zinta said that she thinks she has finally found someone who respects her – both as an artist and as a human being. The only aspect she was willing to share was that the ‘he’ in her life belonged to an eminent North Indian Rajput family, and that the head of the family was a national-level politician. Any guesses on who this could be?

Rumours of Preity Zinta having an eye-lift

Bollywood has a new rumour doing the rounds and this one goes that Preity Zinta has gone under the knife and had an eye-lift. These rumours began after Preity’s recent film KANK released. No doubt that the actress has a fantastic wardrobe and appealing look throughout the film, but one also notices that the area around Preity’s eyes look flawed. According to sources Preity used plenty of heavy eye make-up to conceal the marks and bruises that she had after her eye-lift. Director Karan Johar was unable to delay the film and hence Preity had to shoot for her role in the film before she had fully recovered from her eye-lift surgery. Well all we can say is that Preity is sure one gutsy gal to undergo an eye-lift especially during the peak of her career.

Preity Zinta is finally getting her due in bollywood, she is happy that her film Kank has opened to great responses. Preity is not insecure about the length of her role in any of her films. In fact she is very happy with the kind of films that she is doing, she will soon be seen in Shirish Kunder’s Jaaneman alongside Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. Preity is also currently shooting for Shaad Ali’s Jhoom Barabar Jhoom with Abhishek Bachchan and Bobby Deol. Preity believes that the assets that set her apart as an actress are that she is very hard-working and performs from the heart.
Preity describes KANK as a film that deals with relationships in a forthright manner and it also deals with the grey areas of marriage. In fact it was the different script of the film that attracted her to it. As for the infidelity theme in the film, Preity does not always agree with what she does in her films. But she also believes that cinema tends to reflect what's happening in society. However she personally believes that marriage is forever. Though Preity at times does feel the pressure of being in a high profile glam industry, she feels that sometimes it is very tiring to live up to one’s image made by the public, nonetheless she deals with work pressures, crazy fans and public adulation in her own stride. Preity tries to avoid having petty insecurities however she does have very philosophical insecurities, like not having her financial independence or not having any constructive work.
Preity claims that she is a complete cleanliness freak ; she says "I have a fetish for cleanliness; I hate dirty feet, dirty hands and dirty clothes." Preity claims that she had a great time shooting in New York for Kank; there was a lot of fun and games on the sets with the entire cast and crew. Preity claims that it was great working with all of her co-stars and it was a wonderful experience. On her co-star Shahrukh, she says "The one colleague I look up to is Shahrukh; he takes a lot of care of you. He’ll help you, he’ll give you cues and he’ll always be there for you. He’s very big-hearted and that only comes in not competing with you, he’s too beyond that to be competing with you. There is nobody else like him." Preity also claims that there has never been any problems with her female co-star Rani Mukherjee, she says that although both of them may not be excellent buddies, they do get along with each other well. In fact Preity is all praises for Rani and her performance in Kank. She claims that Rani like everyone else has given an excellent performance.
Currently Preity Zinta is in London shooting for Jhoom Barabar Jhoom and she claims that she has not even had time to savour the successful release of Kank. Preity says "Indeed here in London, you can’t step out in the street without bumping into one or the other of your colleagues. Abhishek and Bobby too are with the team shooting for the film." The other film units that were shooting in London were Priyadarshan’s Bhagam Bhag, which had Govinda, Lara Dutta and Akshay Kumar. Then Vipul Shah too was shooting his film Namaste London in London with Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Rishi Kapoor and Upen Patel. Now Nikhil Advani is also shooting Salaam-E-Ishq with his huge starcast in London comprising Salman, Priyanka, John, Vidya, Anil Kapoor, Juhi etc.
Preity has been out of the country for so long now busy shooting for her films, she says "Just because I’m so much out of the country, people feel free to say and write what they like." Preity longs to be back in Mumbai with her family and friends. She is looking forward to all her forthcoming films.

"I haven't disappeared after KANK” – Preity Zinta

All sorts of bizarre reasons are being put forward for Preity Zinta's sudden disappearance after the release of Kabhi Alvidaa Na Kehna. "But I'm very much around, in London shooting for Shaad Ali's Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom," Preity’s voice tinkles across the seven seas in reassuring waves. "You see I'm a bit of an idiot. I never take that crucial pause after a release to savor its success. I'm told KANK has raised quite a storm in India. Well, good that’s what movies should do. I don't understand why some people feel Karan Johar has gone too far. Arrey! People say, make something different. And when a filmmaker actually takes the plunge into a deeper end , people accuse him of going too far. Personally I feel proud to be in a film that pushes the envelope in mainstream cinema. I want to hug Karan for making KANK. In fact I'll get my chance to do so in the next twenty-four hours because Karan is coming to London."
