After romancing each other in three big banner movies – Kya Kehna, Kal Ho Naa Ho and Salaam Namaste – over the last decade, Khan and Zinta have geared up to relive their chemistry with a romcom. But will a cameo help the dimpled actor make a comeback….we wonder!
Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta don’t really make a great pair like Shahrukh Khan and Kajol always do. Still, the two actors coming together onscreen hold some freshness and exuberance. At least, that’s what the successful track record of their association suggests – remember Kya Kehna, Kal Ho Naa Ho and Salaam Namaste? While Saif has come a long way since then and has grown to be an actor of repute, a few duds notwithstanding, Preity lost her way somewhere and her otherwise promising career lost the momentum as she got diverted into various other channels of personal and professional exploration.
From what we hear, after the super debacle of Preity’s home production Ishkq in Paris, the actor-producer is desperately looking forward to doing work on a good, big banner project with an A-list star to get back into the reckoning. Hmmm… high hopes! And this time, her good friend Saif Ali Khan has come to her rescue by agreeing to do a film with her. The romcom that she will be part of will also star Barfi! gal Ileana D’Cruz and will be directed by Go Goa Gone directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. The Bullett Raja actor confirmed that Preity has kindly agreed (stop laughing, sillies!) to do a special appearance in his new film.
Now, Bollywoodlifers, you tell us: Will doing just a cameo (with Saif, whose solo release Agent Vinod failed at the box office) bring the bubbly Z babe back into the game and revive her dipping career? Wethinks a bit part at this stage of her career is not a ‘safe’ idea….don’t you?
