Pretty girl Preeti Jhangiani, who started her career with Mohabatein, wants to break her simple and traditional girl image.
You started your career with Mohabbatein but delivered a series of flops thereafter. Now, you are coming with a newcomer in Chand Ke Paar Chalo. What will you say about your journey in the film industry till now?
I agree that I started with a film like Shahrukh Khan's Mohabbatein but could not encash on its benefits. I got a lot of offers after that but somehow nothing clicked. I feel that I am not getting right kind of films and may be because my image in Mohabatein was projected more as a traditional one. But after doing around a dozens of movies I think I have grown as a mature actress.
Do you want to break off your traditional image?
What I mean to say is that I want to do different kind of characters, which are challenging too. Once you get typecast it becomes very difficult for you to get out of that.
Do you have any reservations about exposing in films?
Within a decent limit I have no problem with skin show. For a glamorous role, exposure becomes a must do for any actress.
Isn't life very boring without a life partner in the film industry?
I don't have any immediate plan for marriage. I am looking for a Mr. right but haven't found anyone yet. I will myself go to the media once I get one.
Are you satisfied with your role in Chand Ke Paar Chalo?
It's a women-oriented role. My character transforms from a banjara dancer to a Bollywood dancer. It has very different shades of life and I like the role. I think this will help change my image from a traditional girl to one who can act in diverse roles.
