Nine out of ten times, Preity Zinta has been described as a 'bubbly' actress. Even Pepsi, the brand she endorses, has a tagline that says 'Oye bubbly.'
And Zinta couldn't hate the word more.
"I think that crown should go to Rani (Mukerji) after Bunty Aur Babli! I don't want to be bubbly anymore. When Pepsi came out with that tagline, I wanted the earth to open up and to disappear inside it!"
What adjectives would she like?
"Alive. Honest and alive," she says promptly.
Well, this 'alive' actress will be seen in Yash Raj Films' next production, Salaam Namaste, opposite Saif Ali Khan.
Directed by debutant director Siddharth Anand, the film is set in Australia and has a very contemporary and trendy look.
