In the year 1998,all the manufacturers of effervescent products went on a mass strike against Bollywood. The reason? It was because,it was discovered that Bollywood had got someone who could give the best of effervescent product a huge inferiority complex.
She was none other than the super ‘bubbly’ Preity Zinta,who also happens to be today’s Birthday girl and whose mere smile is reason enough for the sunflowers to bloom,fishes to swim and the breeze to blow!
Preity Zinta made her acting debut in ‘Dil Se’ in 1998 followed by a role in ‘Soldier’ the same year. These performances earned her a Filmfare Best Female Debut Award,and she was later recognised for her role as a teenage single mother in Kya Kehna.
Preity Zinta shook the entire cinegoer crowd with her on-screen question rendition of ‘Are you a virgin?’ to none other than the ‘Baadshah’ of Bollywood…Shahrukh Khan,no less! What followed after Dil Se were films that were no less than hits,super hits and smash hits! A few examples of the same read as Soldier,Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega,Mission Kashmir,Dil Chahta Hai,Koi Mil Gaya,Kal Ho Na Ho,Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna,Heroes etc.
To wish this bubbly bottle of joy post your comments below.
