Preity Zinta is not too pleased about the news of her going to see Chak De India in a burqa.
"I guess the paper found out from the theatre. I had to go and see Chak De India with a live audience because I wanted to gauge their response. It is a very different kind of film from Yashraj. And just the sort of cinema that takes us ahead." What remains unsaid is the fact that anyone who wants to see a Yashraj film has no choice but to troop down to a theatre because Yashraj don't hold premieres.
Exults Preity, "I'm so taken up by Chak De India. It's a film that makes you proud to be a part of Indian cinema. And I think Shahrukh Khan is awesome. What a performance."
Another current favourite is Rituprano Ghosh. "With his head shaved Ritu-da looks so cute. I simply loved doing Last Lear with him. " Preity will be joining Ritu to leave for the Toronto Film Festival in September.
