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.

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.

Years ago, she was laughed at when she talked about running her own business someday. Today, she’s is seen as one helluva successful owner in the cutthroat world of IPL. She’s held her own despite the charges levelled at her outfit and emerged strong. But then, Preity Zinta has been known for both her beauty and her balls. She was once crowned as the ‘only man in the industry’, thanks to her testimony against the underworld. She’s also taken the property dispute with the late Shandar Amrohi’s family head-on. She’s no bra-burning feminist but advises new girls to hold on to their clothes and not just turn into bikini babes. She says she’s happy without ex-Ness Wadia and doesn’t really need a man. Almost in the same breath, she confesses seeing someone but won’t name him as she’s tired of her personal life being played out in the tabloids. Unruffled by the debacle of Ishkq In Paris, she will be seen in Bhayyaji Superhitt, Happy Ending and other projects. Her never-say-die approach make her a living, breathing woman of today than a perked up Barbie. She’s steel wrapped in velvet. Excerpts…
How is the IPL 7 looking like?
Great! We have a brand new team, a well-balanced squad. We’re excited to have Virendra Sehwag on board, he’s a dynamic and destructive player. We’re also happy to have Mitchell Johnson, George Bailey, Glen Maxwell, Thisara Perera, Shawn Marsh and David Miller, whom we call Miller The Killer!
Have controversies affected the morale of your team?
This is part of the game. It hasn’t affected us because we have been pretty straight and clean. I don’t believe all of cricket is bad, there might be one or two characters. I’m glad they are out of the game and have faced tough consequences. I feel bad because our fans have emotionally invested in the game.
IPL is not happening in India this time. Does it mean loss of revenue?
Well, as much as I love cricket, the elections are more important. So we have had to take it overseas. But we’re going to come back here and hold the other half of the tournament in India. Everyone’s beating BCCI and saying nasty things about them. But they have been wonderful. They’ve assured us that if things go beyond a certain point; they’ll make sure that the franchises don’t lose money.
How is your relationship with Ness Wadia (co-owner of Kings XI Punjab) today?
It got over in 2009. So we need to stop mentioning him every time.

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.”

The Saif-Kareena wedding may be creating waves, but Preity Zinta is in no hurry to tie the knot. “I can only say, wait and watch. Right now I have time only for my film,” says the actor, who is currently single.
The 37-year-old, who visited Delhi recently, wore a religious thread on her
wrist. But it had nothing to do with any ‘mannat’ (wish) for the success of her upcoming film, Ishkq in Paris. “My friend got it from Amarnath and that’s why I’m wearing it. I believe in good karma. Acchhe karam aur hardwork se mannatein poori hoti hai aur kisi se nahi,” she said.
The film, her debut outing as producer, marks her return to silver screen after four years. Preity, however, doesn’t like to call it her ‘comeback film’. “I find the term strange. Recently I read about Rani (Mukerji) making a comeback too. But, she just did a film in January. It’s all hype. Does anyone question Aamir (Khan) when he has a gap of years between his releases?”
There’s, however, one thing Preity agrees with — the film, releasing next month, has put a lot of pressure on her. “It’s like giving birth … I’m very excited but at the same time, very nervous. I’m acting, producing, and have co-written the film as well. There’s so much to take care of… but I’m proud of the final product,” she says.
