It is known that Preity Zinta and Kareena Kapoor have cameos in Raj and Krishna DK’s next, ‘Happy Ending’, which features Saif Ali Khan in the lead. Mirror has now learnt that the two actresses will play former lovers of Saif’s character in the film.
Revealed a source close to the production, “The director duo were looking for actresses whose romantic camaraderie with Saif has clicked in the past. It was Saif who suggested Preity’s name who has successfully paired with him twice in the past (Kal Ho Na Ho and Salaam Namaste).” The source adds that Saif personally called up Preity and asked her if she’d be interested in playing his ex-girlfriend. She laughed and agreed. “Her character is the anchor in Saif’s life. He plays a successful author struggling with a writer’s block,” says the source. On the other hand Kareena, who also has a cameo, will play a dramatically different character. “She is more of an obsessive lover and her part is much smaller than Preity’s,” adds the source.
When contacted, Krishna DK said, “Yes, Saif called Preity and it was sweet of her to agree. Bebo’s inclusion was more of a spontaneous decision as she was with Saif in Los Angeles where we were shooting.”
Happy Ending is releasing on 5th December.

Actress-businesswoman Preity Zintais 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 Zinta has pulled it off with aplomb. “Preity plays a 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 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.

I am doing two films right now, one is called Bhaiyyaji Superhit and the other is Happy Ending, and I had nothing to do with what it’s called. It’s a film with Saif. You will be hearing about me doing some other movies soon but as of now, it’s just about the IPL and the elections. It’s the first time since 1984 — it’s been the most decisive elections for India with the BJP coming as the single largest party with such a big majority.
Politics and elections
I had said seven years ago that I would like to see Mr Modi as Prime Minister. I started off as his biggest critic. Post Godhra, there were only negative thoughts in my head about him being communal. But then when I started going to Gujarat to shoot etc and meeting other people there, especially the Muslims and the stories I heard from them and the development that I saw around them made me see him in a different light. And you know what? The Supreme Court has given him a clean chit so who are we to judge? If the highest court in the country says something we must go by that, and secondly, it’s not the first time that we have had riots in India. We have had riots from 1984 to Kashmiri Pandit issues to the Godhra riots to the Muzaffarnagar riots – we have had all these issues but who, after falling down so badly, has gotten up and taken care of his state and done something for the people? So that means that there’s a future with this person and that was the only reason that I really started leaning towards him and becoming a fan of his. The way the Gujarat machinery works, it would be great if India could be like that. We would be that Golden Bird once again people talked of and poets wrote about. I just hope that people don’t expect him to do everything in one day and just give him some time!
I am going to make a lot of movies. Ishq In Paris will not the only film I ever make. That was a great learning experience and very tough to make but I think I am ready to come back bigger, better and stronger.

Preity Zinta is a busy lady, juggling her T20 team and under-wraps entrepreneur ventures at the same time. So much so that the actor hasn’t had time to shoot for her next film, starring Sunny Deol and has currently put the project on hold. “We have shot 50 per cent of the film. But now Bhaiyyaji Superhitt will have to wait for a little bit because I am going to South Africa. They can’t shoot right now, and then I will have the T20 tournament,” says Preity.
The actor is concentrating more on her business and wants to wrap up her international commitments, related to the venture, before the cricket tournament begins. So, she is not sure when she can start shooting again. “We started it around October last year and a film takes at least a year to be complete. Not every film is made in three months,” she says.
Preity has certainly not retired from acting and is already in talks for her film projects. “I have two films and will sign them soon. I can’t reveal anything about those films, but you will come to know soon. They are big projects,” says Preity.

Preity Zinta might have failed to appear repeatedly before a Mumbai court that eventually ordered a non-bailable arrest warrant against her, but she made sure to present her side of the story.
Scriptwriter and filmmaker Abbas Tyrewala had knocked the court with a bounced cheque of over Rs 18 lakh which the actor allegedly gave him in lieu of dialogues he wrote for her debut production venture Ishkq In Paris. However, the 38-year-old actor has rubbished Tyrewala’s claims. According to her, he is lying simply because he never worked for her film. “He has lied and deposited a cheque that was supposed to be used only if he did work for us which he did not do. Neither did he sign any paper work nor did he do any work but took a cheque that was not meant to be taken. So we did stop payment and now he claims it to be bounced,” she clarified.
The actor claimed that all the members of the cast and crew were duly paid on time. “Every single person that has worked for us has been paid but I cannot pay someone for work he has not done.
He abused my goodwill and took a cheque which was supposed to be used only if he did work for us. I did not register a case of a stolen cheque as I did not want to embarrass him but now the matter is in court and its all there for anyone to see. If he has any proof of any paper work he has or any work he has done, he is most welcome to claim a payment,” she said.

After doing a cameo with Saif Ali Khan in the US for a film entitled Happy Ending, Preity Zinta is back in Mumbai “for good”.
She has resumed shooting in India with Neerraj Pathak’s Bhaiyyaji Superhit where in her own words she has a “damned interesting role” opposite Sunny Deol. For the first time, Preity gets to play a bonafide rustic character. And she’s working hard to clean herself of the subtle American twang she has acquired during her frequent visits to the US where her brother lives.
Last seen in her home-production Ishkq In Paris, the film’s failure left Preity disappointed but undeterred.
Now back in the thick of things Preity says, “I’ve been expanding my horizons, exploring new areas of work-related activity. That is difficult for a lot of my colleagues in Bollywood to understand. For them cinema is the sum-total of their activity. I didn’t want my life to be restricted to one vocation. I’ve done other things. Now I’m back being what I am most comfortable doing.”
Preity begins shooting for Bhaiyyaji Superhit in Udaipur this week. She plays a character from rural Uttar Pradesh.
Sunny Deol plays her husband.
“The reason why I am doing this role is because I find it damn interesting. I have never played someone quite like this woman. At this juncture of my career when I no longer need to depend on my film career for my livelihood, I can afford to do the roles that enthuses me.”
About the cameo she did in Saif’s film, Preity says, “It’s not just a song. It’s a role with speaking lines. In fact I still have a portion of it to shoot here in India. I did it for Saif who’s a dear friend.”
