Preity Zinta on not doing movies

In an interview with DD India, the actor opened up on why she took that long to do her next film. She said, “I didn’t want to do a film. I was focusing on business and personal life. People forget that for women, as actors, your craft is important, you want a body of work, but you have a biological clock. I’ve never dated anyone in the industry. I’ve never dated an actor. So the logical thing was I also needed to have my own family. It’s great to play various lives, but you shouldn’t forget to live your life. So I wanted to have children. Business was also very exciting since it was something new. But mostly, I wanted to focus on my personal life. I really don’t want to be an accomplished actor and a lonely person”.

On how women face inequality

“It’s for every woman who works out there. Everybody tells you that I want equality, I want to work as hard as a man. But the world, they don’t give you equality. You have a biological clock. Nature isn’t equal to you so you have to leave what you’re doing and focus on that. My kids are two-and-a-half and I’m back at work. I’m loving work, but there’s so much guilt everyday that I’m missing out. My daughter Gia and my son Jai look at me and say, ‘Mumma, please stay with us,’ and I start crying,” added Bhaiaji Superhit actress.

On the work front, Preity Zinta is all set to make a comeback with Rajkumar Santoshi’s Lahore 1947 alongside Sunny Deol.
