Preity Zinta – Happy Birthday!!!!!!!
Hey Hey Hey!!! Its our bubbly actress, Preity Zinta’s birthday. Now who doesn’t fall for her dimpled smile and her stellar performances through out her career. She turns 44 today and we bring you a brief flashback on her career path.
Preity made her debut through an ad for Perk chocolates in 1996. However, in movies, she marked her debut through the Mani Ratnam movieDil Se, a Shahrukh starrer. The film was released in 1998. Though her screen time was only 20 minutes, the audience clearly noticed her and the rest is history. Moreover, she played her first lead role inSoldier(1998), opposite Bobby Deol. Well, the songSoldier Soldier is running through my head, as I am writing this… 😉 which was my favourite at the time.
Her break through movie isKya Kehna(2000), which was a movie way ahead of its time. In this movie, Preity played the role of a teenage girl, who had to undergo a teenage pregnancy. The character had to undergo various emotional changes as she fights social prejudice.
Who can forget her performance inKal Ho Naa Ho? Preity’s character was the highlight and her character was a delight to watch. Her character as Naina Catherine Kapur showcased her versatality as an actress. And what aboutKoi…Mil Gaya?? Both the movies were box office hits and attractive add ons in her career kitty.
Well, if I keep on writing like this, I won’t be able to stop with these movies. I would be writing on and on of my favourite Preity Zinta’s favourite movies likeDil Chahta Hai, Veer Zaara,Salaam Namasteand so on. She now owns a team in the Indian Premier League and is married to Gene Goodenough.
Anyways, time to wind up…
Happy Birthday Preity!!!!!
