In a recent interview with IANS, Preity Zinta opened up on the roles that she has portrayed on the screen, the actress said that despite going to acting school or attending workshops she still got things right on set.
Zinta told the news portal, "There was a definitive understanding for me, even though I never went to an acting school or a workshop, I just wanted to get things right on set, to be honest. Script wise, whichever director gave me a script that made sense to me and the character aligned with my beliefs, I gave it my all. Even doing songs is very very difficult, you have to do them well."
"I have always wanted to do different roles, something that challenged me or showed women in a positive light, different and progressive manner as opposed to just as an object of desire," she said.
The 48-year-old actress further said, "I also had a very strict family back home, so I did not take up any work that would get me in any trouble at home. It was a mix of everything. When I started out I just wanted to do the right thing and things that appealed to me as a person."
"I did not have the luxury of thinking about how I would be perceived as an actor altogether, I just knew that I personally aligned myself with every character and performed them to the best of my ability," she added.
The actress made her acting debut in 1998 with Mani Ratnam's romantic thriller film Dil Se… starring Shah Rukh Khan and Manisha Koirala.
Zinta was last seen in 2018 film Bhaiyaji Superhit, which was an action comedy film starring Sunny Deol, Arshad Warsi, Ameesha Patel and Shreyas Talpade.
