I'm on cloud nine… higher, actually!" Preity Zinta exclaims. Her latest film, Yash Chopra's Veer-Zaara, is a big hit in India and abroad.

"Though I missed the film's opening in Mumbai, the responses I've been getting are very encouraging," she says. "Of course, a Yash Raj film is special by its very definition.

"After a long time, here's something the entire family can watch comfortably."
