Bollywood star Preity Zinta has often admitted that the majority of her friends do not work within the movie making industry and that has really influenced the actress she has become. Preity admits that there are many positives and negatives to being an industry outsider.
Zinta explained, “One big advantage is there is no camp system for me. I work with people on an individual level. A bond forms when I work with them but that’s about it. I don’t fall into the trap of fitting into the industry norms.” She then spoke of the disadvantages.
Preity added, “Among the disadvantages, the biggest is that I don’t know 99 per cent of the old Hindi films. Like I haven’t seen the classics and Karan Johar keeps telling me ‘Preity-man-you should be ashamed of yourself.’ And I am like ‘Oh sorry’.” Preity Zinta’s next Bollywood movie is set to be titled Jai Ramji and is written, directed and produced by Tigmanshu Dhulia.
