Preity Zinta has taken a break from Bollywood and has not been seen in films in quite some time. Her admirers undoubtedly miss her greatly because there’s no doubting she’s one of the industry’s best actresses. She was great in all of them, whether it was her debut picture, ‘Dil Se,’ or the very first small-budget films, such as ‘Kya Kehna.’ Surprisingly, the diva never intended to be an actress in the first place, and her love for her profession developed gradually.
A pivotal moment in her career occurred during the filming of ‘Kya Kehna,’ when she was reprimanded and shouted at by the late choreographer, Saroj Khan.
Take A Look:-
Preity Zinta spoke candidly about the turning point in her career during an episode of Rendezvous with Simi Garewal. The host questioned, “Really, there was no yearning to be an actress? You mean it can happen without burning passion?” The actress replied, “I think the burning passion came when I started to be screamed at on sets.”
Preity Zinta mentioned, “I remember my first film, Kya Kehna, where Saroj Ji (Saroj Khan), she was just like, ‘Kaha se le aaye ho iss ladki ko, she doesn’t know how to dance, she doesn’t know how to lip-sync. What is she doing here? What is this creature you have put in front of me.’”

The ‘Veer Zaara’ actress felt quite uneasy and recalled stating, “And I felt extremely silly, stupid while lip-syncing. I started giggling. And then I felt, ‘Oh, it can’t be like this. I am a human being, you can’t talk to me like this. I must work at it.’ Then I tried to push myself.”
