Actress-businesswoman Preity Zinta, whose current legal conflict with ex-beau Ness Wadia scorched the headlines, is set to make a comeback with Neeraj Pathak's Bhaiyyaji, in which she plays a ferocious bandit.
The film will also feature Sunny Deol as a gangster from Uttar
Pradesh. According to Pathak, Preity has pulled it off with
"Preity plays a Uttar Pradeshwali. She plays a gangster's
daughter. She's no-nonsense UP gangster and Sunny Deol's wife," he
Apparently Preity's transformation into a foul-mouthed rustic
bandit was so convincing that Sunny wants to cast her as Sohni's
Punjabi mother in the remake of Sohni Mahiwal, a film that
the actor reportedly wants to do with his son in the lead.
Pathak said, "Preity's interpretation of the firebrand wife's
character is bang-on. She will not be seen as only for urbane
sophisticated roles after 'Bhaiyyaji'."
"We've 12 days' shooting left. We will complete the shooting
post-monsoon," said the director.
In the past Preity had worked with both Sunny and Bobby in The Hero: Love Story Of A Spy and Soldier. Interestingly, both the films were hits. Let's wait and see how Preity carries off her rustic bandit looks!
