Salman Khan is not returning any favours: Preity Zinta
In 2009 Salman Khan starrer Main Aur Mrs Khanna, the actress made a special appearance in a song.
“There is no hard and fast rule that just because I did a song in his film he does for me. Out of all the actors, he has been closet and most supportive friend in whatever I have done. Not just for this song but for music as well,” said Ms Zinta.
“For me, my first film as a producer has been an uphill task because you have to work hard in whatever you do. But he being there has made a huge difference to me,” she added.
He plays himself in the peppy track and features along with Preity, who plays the lead actress in the movie.
The 37-year-old says the song is required in the film and she is not banking on Salman’s fan club to get more footfalls.
“This song was always part of the film. It is situational and an integral part of the film. The only actor I approached for this film was Salman Khan and he agreed. I think it is not correct to take crutches for anything in life,” she said.
Salman Khan and Preity Zinta have been seen together in films like Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, Har Dil Jo Pyar karega and Heroes.
Talking about their friendship, Preity said: “Our relation goes back ten years and he has always been supportive. He is has been a friend, who has always been there irrespective of what the media or people say, he has a big heart. He is honest straight forward guy. For me he is so awesome.”
Ishkq In Paris, directed by Prem Raj, also features Arjun Rampal, French actress Isabelle Adjani and Gaurav Chanana.
