 Preity Zinta Detailed Biography

Preity Zinta, the zing thing of the Bollywood, was born on 31st Jan 1974. The Delhiite who hails from a defence background, had already made her mark as a model while still in school & shot to fame as the refreshing, cool, wet model in the Liril ad. This, along with her mischievous expressions and twinkling eyes in the Cadbury’s Perk ad brought her to Shekhar Kapur’s notice. The famed director was then looking for fresh faces to launch his film ‘Tara Rum Pum Pum’. Preity signed on the dotted line, but the film never took off. However, her name was already doing the industry rounds and she bagged a couple of films in quick time.

Luckily for Preity, ‘Dil Se..’ was her first release. The film bombed at the box-office, but Preity’s dazzling smile and pleasant disposition in a small but significant role left behind a decidedly happy impression. With ‘Dil Se..’ Preity had already proved she could act. ‘Soldier’ (1998) and ‘Sangharsh’ (1999) have merely reiterated this fact. In the former she played an impish, spoilt rich girl with great conviction. In the latter she was equally at ease executing the part of a gritty young CBI trainee in search of a dreaded killer. She made a mark in the industry with her film “Kya Kehna”.

She’s hit the highway 2003 year with two good performances The Hero and Armaan and one big hit Koi… Mil Gaya. The road ahead looks even better, plum projects with Yash Chopra, Karan Johar and Farhan Akhtar have taken care of that. Recently seen in movies ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ & ‘Lakshya’. However, Preity, a relentless self-improver, doesn’t take her success lightly. Or too seriously either, for that matter. Maybe that’s why she enjoys it so much.

Preity, a graduate in Psychology, is so pretty, outspoken and a beautiful actress-dancer who keeps smiling all the time with a dimple on her right cheek. She acted in one movie in Tollywood too. She dated Marc Robinson, one of the hottest models in India, Model and TV anchor (2001) now, broke up with Marc Robinson.
