Preity Zinta set to make a comeback with ‘Bhaiyyaji’
Preity’s transformation into a foul-mouthed rustic bandit was so convincing that Sunny wants to cast her as Sohni’s Punjabi mother in a remake of ‘Sohni Mahiwal’
Actress-businesswoman Preity Zinta, whose current legal conflict with ex-beau Ness Wadia has been scorching national 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 aplomb.
“Preity plays an Uttar Pradeshwali. She plays a gangster’s daughter. She’s no-nonsense UP gangster and Sunny Deol’s wife,” he added.
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 a remake of ‘Sohni Mahiwal’, a film that the actor reportedly plans to execute with his son in the lead.
Pathak said: “Preity’s interpretation of the firebrand wife’s character is bang—on. She will not be selected only for urbane sophisticated roles after ‘Bhaiyyaji’.”
“We have 12 days’ shooting left. We will complete the shooting post—monsoon,” the director added.
In the past, Preity has worked with both Sunny and Bobby in ‘The Hero: Love Story Of A Spy’ and ‘Soldier’. Interestingly, both the films were major hits.
