Excerpts from the interview:
Karan: How’s life been?
Preity-Life’s been good! I just wrapped up a movie “Jhoom Barabar Jhoom” and now its ready for release!
Karan: Yes it’s releasing soon and everyone’s saying it’s looking fabulous and in fact the promo’s are on air and everyone’s loving them.
Preity-Well I’ve had a great time shooting for it… it’s been a great experience… first time working with Abhishek… you never cast me with him!
Karan: Well you guys were the deprived parties in KANK and those two were just having an affair behind your backs. You silly people!
Preity-No, no, no… jokes aside… working with AB for the first time and working with Bobby after 8-9 years… Lara I were working with for the first time, so it’s been great. Shaad also… I worked with Shaad in Dil Se when he was an assistant and I started off my career and now working with him… so it’s been great!
Karan: When you look back at Soldier do you think it was just the other day or you feel, lots of time has flown?
Preity: Actually I didn’t feel these 9 years, to be honest. It’s been the best time of my life. The industry has given me everything and you know people always say, this industry is sleazy, there is a casting couch, people are like this. I think people treat you the way you want to be treated by them. I have never encountered any problem with anybody who’s being cheap or sleazy because I have never portrayed myself like that.
Karan: Because you have met very classy and elegant people.
Preity: Like Karan Johar? Like KJ?
Karan: Yeah so there has been no problem on that end. I’m more of the couch myself rather than being the casting couch. Yeh Pritam Singh ka origin bata dena mujhe.
Preity: Bobby, please don’t destroy me. Please I beg you!
Bobby: Well, she’s like a guy… eh… like a buddy!
Karan: You two have been friends for a while and you’ve kept in touch even when you’ll didn’t work together?
Preity: Yes! Bobby and me have known each other before I became an actor.
Bobby: She would be with us. We would all go out in my dads van every night out and she would be sitting right at the back quiet to her self. And one day she came up to me and said Ok! I’m doing criminal psychology. Can I make you my subject? And I said to her, look Preity… I would love to but I’m from this family and if I talk about myself and if you say this is my subject Bobby Deol, I can’t do it!
Karan: You wanted to make Bobby your subject?
Preity: But you know in the beginning, I didn’t know Bobby as Dharmendra’s son.
Karan: Who did you think he was?
Preity: I swear. When I first met him, he was one of the guys in the group and I had to look for someone between 23-28 ka age group, I was finding and I needed 5 subjects and actually I didn’t realize!
So, don’t forget to tune in as Karan chats with Preity Zinta and Bobby Deol on Koffee with Karan this Sunday, June 10th at 9 p.m. on Star One and Star World.!!
