`Ishkq In Paris` has scenes from Preity, director`s life
Mumbai: Bollywood actress Preity Zinta says certain scenes in ‘Ishkq in Paris’ are inspired by her life. The film also has bits from director Prem Raj`s life.
‘Ishkq in Paris’, Preity`s first production venture, is releasing May 24.
Talking about the film, she said: "(It) is not ispired from my life, but yes certain instances (are inspired from my life). I won`t lie about that."
"Not only mine, in fact it (film) has some bits from our director`s life (Prem Raj) and from my PR (public relations) officer`s life. I mean we have not left anyone," Preity said here Friday while promoting the film.
In the film, Preity plays a half-Indian, half-French girl who falls in love in Paris, one of the most expensive cities in the world.
She said "we have added something or the other from everybody`s life because I think somewhere art imitates life".
"Instead of taking from south Indian movies, English movies or European movies, we have been very true to ourselves," Preity added.
There was a special reason why Paris was chosen as the city in focus.
"Paris is a city known for two things - fashion and romance. So, to be fashionably in love, there is no other place to be in, but Paris," said Preity.
