Preeti to make a comeback
She made her debut in a film produced by Yash Chopra and directed by Aditya Chopra, what else could a newcomer want?
But even after getting an entry into Bollywood with a hit film like Mohabbatein, Preeti Jhangianiís filmi career refused to take off. A slew of debacles followed and the actress settled into matrimony with actor Parvin Dabbas. Ask Preeti who she blames for her inability to make it in films and she says candidly, ďI donít see a point in analysing these things. I can give a variety of excuses like I donít belong to a filmi family or that I didnít have a Godfather but I wonít do that. I think every person comes with his or her destiny and I would just put it down to that.Ē
But now, Preeti promises to come back with not one but two new releases. ďIíve just finished shooting for As The River Flows directed by Bidyut Kotoky. Itís set in Assam and itís about common people getting caught in the crossfire between the government and terrorists,Ē she says. Preeti plays a Bengali newspaper editor in this one and in Mono, which is going to be shot completely in London, the actress gets to don five avatars. ďThatís because I play an actress who plays five different characters. This is by far the most challenging thing Iíve done,Ē she adds.
Although Preeti admits that she is not being offered mainstream roles ó which she is keen to do ó she says that both the films sheís doing are hardcore commercial movies. Is she also worried that the growing competition (Read: Deepika, Asin, Anushka etc) will mean lack of roles for her? ďThere was competition even when I entered Bollywood, so that doesnít bother me. I think I have a lot to offer and hopefully, somebody will put their faith in me too. I agree I havenít reached where I wanted to in my career but thankfully, age is on my side,Ē she says, putting to rest the pregnancy rumours that have been doing the rounds of late.
She laughs, ďItís ridiculous. Just because Iím married doesnít mean Iím pregnant too. I want to start my career now, not end it!Ē
