Fed up with responding to queries about her family background, actress Preity Zinta has finally revealed her British connection.

"Some people think I'm south Indian, while some feel I'm a Muslim. There have also been fans who have asked me whether I hail from Himachal Pradesh," said Preity in a press statement.

"In the early 18th century, when marital alliances between the Rajput and British became quite common, the Zinta clan was born. I'm the rare combination of British and Rajput blood," she added.

The actress has reportedly signed a film with her Dil Chahta Hai co-star Aamir Khan to be made under the Yash Raj banner.
