The dimple-cheeked Bollywood diva is preparing to start shooting for her very first film as a producer. The story of the film, Ishkq in Paris, which is based on a Hollywood movie, Before Sunrise, has the story focusing on boy meets girl in a foreign land and the two fall in love.
This will be Preity Zinta’s first production and the ever-smiling actress has put in a lot of hard work carrying out weeks of discussions with the French authorities and hunting for the best locations in Europe for the shoot.
Now the beauty is back in Bollywood and getting ready to kick start her maiden production “Ishkq in Paris”. The story of the film is said to be inspired by the Hollywood flick “Before Sunrise” that had Ethan Hawke and Julie Delp in the lead roles. Released in 1995, the film was about two tourists, an American man and a French woman who meet in Europe on a train journey. The two fall in love and spend a romantic day in Vienna.
In Preity’s Bollywood version of the film, the actress will play an Indian woman with a well-known French actor playing the lead opposite her. It has been heard that she had a hard time finding her idyllic love interest for the film. However with everything settled and in place, Preity is all set to begin shooting for the film sometime in the first week of November. They will be shooting at some popular places of tourist interest in Paris.
Preity’s efforts have paid off after all and good for her too. The actress was last seen in Deepa Mehta’s “Heaven on Earth” where she plays the lead role of a downtrodden wife.
Prem Soni of “Main Aurr Mrs Khanna” will be directing Preity’s “Ishkq in Paris”. As for her fans, they will be certainly thrilled to see their favourite star come back as her previous bubbly self, singing and dancing to Bollywood numbers. In fact we all look forward to the film with great eagerness.
