Preity Zinta Photo During Media Interactions At JW Marriott – Preity Zinta is an Indian film actress and entrepreneur. She has appeared in Hindi films of Bollywood, as well as Telugu, Punjabi, and English language films. Though she was not the first choice for it, but it is a role that has come to define her. Looking back, Preity Zinta says Kal Ho Na Ho will always have a special place in her heart.
The film, which completes 15 years today, was first offered to Kareena Kapoor but it came to Preity after she declined it. Ironically, Preity was supposed to play Geet in Jab We Met, a role that Kareena will forever be associated with. “It was very special to me because I lost my first love. I was in love with him, he was not. I felt strongly when the film was offered to me. Some of the best things have happened to me during that film,” Preity told PTI.
The film revolved around a young, introvert woman, who has trust issues after her father’s suicide. Eventually, she falls in love but that is not to be. Preity, 43, said she and Jaya Bachchan, who played her mother in the film, share a great bond now.
