Preity Zinta Makes A Shocking Statement, “Been Away From Entertainment Because I’m Not Selling Myself”
Preity Zinta is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful actresses Bollywood ever saw. The dimpled beauty has won accolades for her chubby nature and her bubbly personality. However, she has been away from the entertainment industry for a long time. And on her birthday, a leading entertainment daily got in touch with her.
In an interview with Spotboye, Preity Zinta revealed that she has been away from the entertainment industry because she is not into selling herself. She was quoted saying, “I am not the kind of person who will stand up and complain about anything. I have no complaints against anyone. If I’ve been away from the entertainment industry it’s because I am not into selling myself. You won’t see me buying space to get written about. I want to be appreciated for the work that I do.”
The actress further added, “During the year you will see a lot more layering in my life. Lately, I’ve become a lot calmer and more spiritual. But please don’t make me out to be as this little boring angel. I love my wild side as much as the calm. A lot of things are changing in my life. I’ve realised through my experiences during the past year that life is not just about one activity or one experience. There’s so much that I’ve experienced and there’s a lot more to come.”
Preity is amused to see today’s kids growing up without heroes. “What happened to those dreams of being Jawaharlal Nehru and Lata Mangeshkar?No kid wants to change the world. According to me a hero is a soldier or a doctor, not a film star. We don’t appreciate the real heroes any more.We think only about our own interests.And since we’ve no role-models in real life we hardly have roles of substance in films except for an occasional Milkha or Jhansi Ki Rani.”
