Preity Zinta praises Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on her comeback

Preity Zinta is full of praise for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback in Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa. Can two actresses ever be friends? If one hears Preity’s fulsome praise for Aishwarya, the answer appears to be in the affirmative.

Says Preity, “Aishwarya is looking absolutely smashing in the teasers of Jazbaa. Who says female actors, after marriage, are no longer in demand? Ash’s getting the best of both the worlds. She’s a great mom and wife, and she’s doing the work that she wants to, on her own terms.”

Preity Zinta: A Good Time For Heroines, But Nothing Unusual

Preity Zinta who is back in the thick of Bollywood is quite kicked by the number of female-oriented films being made in recent times.

But she disagrees about this being the best for heroines. “It’s a good time to be a female actor in Bollywood. But let’s not forget earlier also there were some terrific times for women actors. Mehboob Khan’s Mother India was made so many decades ago.Almost every year there are strong female characters in our cinema.It’s sad when actresses take credit for changing the way cinema views women. It’s a process that’s been happening from the time cinema came into being.”

Among the recent roles Preity’s favourite is Rani Mukherjee’s in Pradeep Sarkar’s Mardaani. “Rani simply killed it. She was fabulous. Rani is one of the finest actresses we have.
