Happy Birthday, Preity Zinta!

Once the darling of B-town with A-list directors lining up outside her house to cast her in their ambitious films, Preity Zinta has suddenly disappeared from the scene. The gorgeous actor can be spotted only in stadia waving the flag of her IPL team these days. Her talk show Up Close and Personal with PZ did not revive Preity’s career either and we really scratched our collective heads to recollect the film Preity had last worked in. Today the dimpled beauty celebrates her 37th birthday. Send your wishes!

After making her debut in Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se right alongside Shahrukh Khan in 1998 followed by an endearing performance in Soldier, Preity Zinta became every boy’s dream girl. Her dimpled smile, infectious chirpiness and decent acting made her every director’s ultimate choice too. She did a fabulous job in movies like Kya Kehna, Sangharsh, Koi Mil Gaya, Veer-Zaara, Salaam Namaste, Kal Ho Naa Ho and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. She also bagged the Filmfare Award in the Best Actress category for her heartfelt performance in Kal Ho Naa Ho in 2003. Preity has also worked in Telugu, Punjabi and English films. Her Canadian Film Heaven On Earth, directed by internationally acclaimed filmmaker Deepa Mehta won Preity the Silver Hugo Award in the best actress category at the Chicago Film Festival in 2008.

Largely known in the media for being over-enthusiastic and speaking her mind, Preity is also the co-owner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket team Kings XI Punjab. Her ex-boyfriend business tycoon Ness Wadia is the co-owner of the same team. After a sabbatical of two years from Bollywood followed by Heaven on Earth, Preity chose to focus on other career prospects like managing her own media company PZNZ Media and her cricket team. Her talk show Up Close and Personal with PZ in spite of featuring A-list celebrities did not garner adequate TRPs. Preity is looking forward to her upcoming films Ishkq in Paris and Har Pal this year. As the effervescent diva turns 37 today, we wish her a great birthday and an eventful future.
