With her latest film Bhaiaji Superhit, Preity Zinta is back on screen. It even stars Sunny Deol in the lead role. Preity Zinta believes that it is natural for a parent to help their chlildren and hence claims that nepotism is not a new concept. Being an outsider, Preity clearly stated that those who have worked and have made a name for themselves have been dominating the Bollywood irrespective of where they came from.
She said, “It is an age-old thing that parents will help their children. Nepotism does exist. But then there are stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and others who are not from industry and are superstars,” to PTI.
The actress always wanted to be financially stable and independent. She said, ““There will always be nepotism and you can’t change that but one should never underestimate those who have a hunger to prove themselves in the industry.”
She further added, ““My dad passed away when I was young. There was a strong desire within me to be financially independent. I was doing criminal psychology, I wanted to crack crimes. I am a great investigator, I can find out anything. I used that part of me in developing characters.”
The actress also said, “I never thought I would become a big actor or star, I didn’t even think it was possible. Then I was sure I would work till I am excited. After I did Veer Zaara and Salaam Namaste, I reached a point where nobody let me experiment.
I felt I should try something different. I went and met all the producers and directors with whom I had worked and said, please don’t offer me any films as I am getting into sports. They thought I was crazy and part of me was. It was new and so I was excited and nervous. Also, it was my dream to be an entrepreneur.”
After answering a few questions about her upcoming film, Preity concluded by saying, “I am the worst person when I am too confident, then I don’t put efforts and feel I am amazing and I fall flat on my face.”
