Preity Zinta entered Bollywood with Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se that released in 1998. The bubbly actress went on to star in superhit films like Kya Kehna, Dil Chahta Hai, Koi Mil Gaya, Kal Ho Na Ho to name a few. Despite enjoying huge popularity, the actress went on to concentrate on her business endeavours and acting took a back seat. However, it turned out to be the actress’ decision to stay away from the industry.

Preity was last seen in Bhaiaji Superhit that released in 2018. And it was only recently when she opened up about why she chose to stay away from films despite being one of the most sought after actresses of her time.

In a recent interview with SpotboyE, Preity revealed why she chose to stay away from the Entertainment industry. The dimpled beauty said that she is not into selling herself and that’s the reason why she has done fewer films over the last few years.

The actress told the portal, “I am not the kind of person who will stand up and complain about anything. I have no complaints against anyone. If I’ve been away from the entertainment industry it’s because I am not into selling myself. You won’t see me buying space to get written about. I want to be appreciated for the work that I do.”

She went on to add, “I’ve realised through my experiences during the past year that life is not just about one activity or one experience. There’s so much that I’ve experienced and there’s a lot more to come.”

Though the actress is not seen on the silver screen, she manages to stay in the limelight thanks to the Indian Premier League. The actress co-owns Kings XI Punjab team. The actress married Gene Goodenough in 2016. She is busy with her social activism, humanitarian work and column writing.
