Bollywood iconic movie ‘‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ has completed its 15 years on Wednesday (Nov 28). The movie was first offered to Kareena Kapoor but it came to Preity after she declined it.
Preity Zinta recalled her journey and said “It was very special to me because I lost my first love. I was in love with him, he was not. I felt strongly when the film was offered to me. Some of the best things have happened to me during that film”. The film revolved around a young, introvert woman, who has trust issues after her father’s suicide. Eventually, she falls in love but that is not to be. Preity, 43, said she and Jaya Bachchan, who played her mother in the film, share a great bonding now. “It was one of those films that filled me with joy but it broke our hearts as well. It was a roller coaster ride… It is a timeless film. I am fortunate that I was a part of it,” Preity said.
“There is a karmic connection between Kareena and me. We both are in very good karma with each other because she said no to ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ and I said no to Jab We Met, both of them are iconic and career defining films. People tell me they liked me a lot in Kal Ho Na Ho and I think she did a wonderful job as Geet,” she said.
