No Bollywood hits, walking on the wrong side of thirties and going the business way. A perfect recipe to be written off for an actress.
The critics may be wondering about the future of Preity Zinta but the dimpled beauty says she does not bother as "only big stars get written off".
"I have been here since ten years and there have been three times in my career that I have been written off. And it is just not me. It has happened with Mr Bachchan. They wrote off Shahrukh. They wrote off Aishwarya. I think only when you are a big star is that they write you off. That is one positive thing," Preity told
in an interview.
The 34-year-old actress, whose last onscreen appearance was a cameo in Salman Khan starrer box office dud
Mr and Mrs Khanna
, has not enjoyed a happening year. She was also seen in
which did not create any magic either. And for the major part of the year Preity was busy handling her IPL team
Kings Eleven Punjab
which she co-owns with former boyfriend Ness Wadia.
"I don't take my break from movies negatively. I had got involved with IPL and it was a very big investment for me. I was building a huge property for myself. But I miscalculated. I thought I could understand the business in 6 months. But that was not the case and 6 months became 18 months," said the actress, who was in the city as the brand ambassador of Dabur Vatika hair oil.
