Preity Zinta has criticized media for “wrongly” addressing her and “Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega” co-star Rani Mukerji as the actresses of 90s. @Siliconeer, #Bollywood, #RaniMukerji, #PreityZinta
Preity, 40, who met Rani at a recent Diwali bash and posted a selfie with the pregnant actress on Twitter, said the reports mentioned the decade wrong.
“Wonder why everyone in the media says that they miss Rani & My movies from the 90ties ? I only had Dil Se, Soldier(98) & Sangharsh (99).
“Rani and I worked in movies in 2000 & every 2 years after that. So technically I guess everyone has got the decade wrong. Isn’t that strange?,” she posted on Twitter.
The duo shared screen space in a string of films including “Chori Chori Chupke Chupke” (2001), “Veera Zaara” (2004) and “Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna” (2006).
Rani was last seen in husband Aditya Chopra’s production “Mardaani” in 2014.
Preity, who last appeared in Saif Ali Khan-starrer “Happy Ending” in 2014, will be next seen opposite Sunny Deol in upcoming film “Bhaiyyaji Superhitt.”
