Preity Zinta set to make a comeback as rustic bandit

Mumbai: Actress-businesswoman Preity Zinta, whose current legal conflict with ex-beau Ness Wadia scorched the headlines, is set to make a comeback with Neeraj Pathak`s ‘Bhaiyyaji’, in which she plays a ferocious bandit.

The film will also feature Sunny Deol as a gangster from Uttar Pradesh.

According to Pathak, Preity has pulled it off with aplomb.

"Preity plays a Uttar Pradeshwali. She plays a gangster`s daughter. She`s no-nonsense UP gangster and Sunny Deol`s wife," he added.

Apparently Preity`s transformation into a foul-mouthed rustic bandit was so convincing that Sunny wants to cast her as Sohni`s Punjabi mother in the remake of ‘Sohni Mahiwal’, a film that the actor reportedly wants to do with his son in the lead.

Pathak said: "Preity`s interpretation of the firebrand wife`s character is bang-on. She will not be seen as only for urbane sophisticated roles after `Bhaiyyaji`."

"We`ve 12 days` shooting left. We will complete the shooting post-monsoon," said the director.

In the past Preity had worked with both Sunny and Bobby in ‘The Hero: Love Story Of A Spy’ and ‘Soldier’. Interestingly, both the films were hits.
