This week on CNN’s TALK ASIA, host Lorraine Hahn interviews Bollywood’s charming actress, Preity Zinta. During this interview, Zinta talks about her early days in Bollywood, her favorite co-actor whom she enjoys working with and her latest movie, ‘Veer Zaara’.

When asked how she feels when superstars like her are treated like demi-Gods, Zinta replies, “It’s absolutely fabulous when people come up and say ‘my child is your biggest fan, please take a photo with my child’. And the child is an 11-month old baby. So I think film is a part of the Indian way of life and it’s been that since years and years and years. Actors in India have a very different equation than actors anywhere in the world with their audiences, and I think that’s something really special about Indian movies.”

During the half-hour interview, the Indian actress also discusses how she chooses her roles, “I think I would like to be part of a film that’s progressive as well as entertaining but should have a message as well. Basically I want to perform a variety of roles. I think variety is the spice of life.”

Additionally, Zinta chats about her short stint in modeling while she was only 14 and a half years old and also reveals to viewers ways in which she spends her personal time relaxing and disconnecting from her busy schedule. All this and more on CNN’s TALK ASIA.
