She has just turned producer with her upcoming film, Ishkq In Paris. And even as Preity Zinta keeps herself busy with acting and running an IPL cricket team (Kings XI Punjab), it seems she has added another feather to her cap. The actor has apparently tried her hand at co-writing the Prem
Soni-directed film, which he had originally scripted himself.
“Preity has been instrumental in completing the film’s story. So whether it was discussing dialogues or fleshing out scenes, she made every effort to strengthen the script,” says Prem, who’s just returned from wrapping up the first schedule in Paris.
Ask the director if the film is a copy — as reported — of Family Man (2000) and Before Sunset (2004), and he says, “That’s complete untrue. Also, I would like to clarify that it’s not an Indo-French collaboration. It’s a typical Bollywood film. The fact that it’s being shot in France and features a few French actors doesn’t make it a foreign film.”
