Guess Preity Zinta is so much involved with her Ishq in Paris (no pun intended) that she is biding time before announcing any new project. Two films that are waiting to finalize her presence are Bhaiyyaji Superhit and Jai Ramji.
“Both films are as different as chalk and cheese though”, confirms an insider, “While former is a full on laugh riot due to its action comedy genre, latter is a serious film that takes a hard hitting stance on current socio political situation of the country. Naturally, Preity is thinking hard before signing on the dotted line as she is coming back after a hiatus.”
While she is sure that Ishq In Paris would be her comeback vehicle, she is thinking hard about the course she wants her career from this point on.
Says director Neeraj Pathak who is yet to finalise the leading lady (other than Ameesha Patel) for Bhaiyyaji Superhit even though the film’s shooting starts next week, “Preity has liked the idea a lot though we are yet to sign her. She is travelling and I would narrate the part to her once she is back. In principle she should be on but let her come back and say ‘yes’ before we make any announcements.”
On the other hand Tigmanshu Dhulia has already kept Jai Ramji aside due to various other reasons. Currently busy with Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 2, he is a tad non-committed when it comes to the final cast of the film.
He says, “I just adore her as an actress. I was associated with her first film Dil Se and was also a part of the auditioning team for Shekhar Kapur’s Ta Ra Rum Pum (which was never made). Main bahaut pasand karta hoon usse. I will certainly approach her for the film.”
Guess for that even he would have to wait for her return from Paris!
