Mumbai: Dimpled beauty Preity Zinta is all set to return to the big screen with Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Jai Ramji’. And news has it that shedding her lovey-dovey image the actress for the first time will play the role of a gangster!

With IPL and TV assignments keeping our damsel busy, Priety has been missing from the Bollywood action for quite some time. And much to everyone’s’ surprise, the actress has decided to make a comeback with an unorthodox role.

Director Tigmanshu Dhulia who shot to fame with the 2003 hit `Haasil`, confirmed, saying, "Preity Zinta liked the script and has agreed to work in the film. However, I have not yet formally signed her, as she is busy with IPL and is not in Mumbai. The formalities should be completed once she is back in the city."

Talking about the film, Dhulia further said, "It is a gangster movie, set in eastern UP. Preity will be a part of the gang. The rest of the cast includes, Arjun Rampal, Irrfan Khan and Randeep Hooda.”

The film will go on floors in July and should be complete by December-January.

Well, it would be interesting to watch Preity play ‘don’ of a rustic belt in India! For we know Preity aka Pritam Singh is not at all the delicate darling sorts…
