What makes Preity Zinta, our birthday girl, extra special and sets her apart from the average B-town actress? Well, for starters, Preity has guts of steel to say it like it is, and she has always backed the truth – whether it was in the Bharat Shah underworld case, or in her role as U.N. Goodwill Ambassador, her conviction and fearlessness is awe-inspiring. Apart from her bravery, she has won the hearts of millions, with her effortless acting and her million dollar smile . But, what I can’t get enough of, is Preity’s Punjabi kudi style dance moves and her inimitable style. So here’s a list of my favorite P.Z. songs that make me love her even more.
1) Mahi Ve and Pretty Woman from Kal Ho Na Ho
The movie had two of the hottest men in B-town, Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan, wooing P.Z., and the songs were mesmerizing. She swept everyone off their feet ‘coz she looked so stunning in that lehenga in Mahi Ve, and in Pretty Woman, she made us love her in that geeky avatar.
2)My Dil Goes Mmmm from Salaam Namaste
This one’s like one of my favorite movies ever ‘coz it always reminds me of those carefree college days and crushes. Saif and Preity make an adorable couple, and the energy of her character is mindblowing. Preity plays a fun R.J. from the land down under, and with that chic wardrobe and an extra dash of her signature humor, she totally rocks in this one.
3) Where’s the Party Tonight from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
This one’s with A.B. Junior, and their incredible chemistry, definitely made us want to join the party. The little pink top and gold skirt look scorching, and we love those moves that set the dance floor on fire.
4) Jaane Kyun Log Pyar Karte Hai from Dil Chahta Hai
Preity tries to make a compelling case for love in this song with Aamir Khan. I love her curls, and everything about the movie is just so perfect, that there’s no way I could leave this song out of my list.
5) Happening from Main Aur Mrs. Khanna
This was like a comeback song for Preity, and she made us see what we’d been missing. With hottie Salman Khan by her side, Preity made a super hot item girl.
Apart from her talk show on UTV, Preity is working super hard on her home production, Ishkq in Paris, where she’s all set to look fitter and hotter than ever before, and even speak French like a pro. We wish her all the luck with her ambitious project and other endeavors.
We at Team MissMalini wish Preity Zinta a super duper birthday and a rewarding year ahead… xoxo
