Shaad Ali is a sweet teddy bear : Preity Zinta


Priety Zinta‘s latest release,Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, is directed by Shaad Ali . Check out Preity’s interview where she spoke about Jhoom Barabar Jhoom and more. Here are some excerpts from the interview -

What do you think about the music of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom?
The music of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom is outstanding. After a long time I have done a film where in every song is my favourite. There isn’t one song that I can’t say is my favourite. Right from the title track to any track all are very well done.

What do you think about Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Shankar Ehsaan Loy are my lucky music directors. They did the music for Dil Chahta hai, KANK, Kal Ho Na Ho. These are all films of mine in which the music has been outstanding and it’s really done well. It’s gone down well with the audiences and I think they have upped their quotient with Jhoom Barabar Jhoom because they are so good in this movie. The variety they have is so outstanding. I think that’s why they are three of them because each one contributes so much to the film and that gives us a whole picture.

Tell us something about your character in the film
I play Alvira Khan, who is from Lahore. Even though she’s from Lahore she refuses to accept the fact that she is a Pakistani living in London. She’s actually British and more British than the queen herself and that’s the fun part. There’s a lot of layering to her. She’s actually a very endearing sweet girl but she’s not this typical heroine with the salt on her nose. But she has this attitude and this image about herself. She is so into that image about herself that everything else dilutes the equation. She’s a lot of fun and quite mad. I think its one of my most mad and totally energetic and crazy characters that I have played till now.

What was it like working with Shaad Ali Sehgal
Shaad and I started our careers together. He assisted Mani Ratnam in Dil Se and I did Dil Se as my first film. He was an assistant director and I was working in that film. I think nine years down the line we come into a full circle now he’s directing this film and I am in it. I absolutely love Shaad and he’s one director very unassuming even if you joke about him and say he’s the only communist on the set. He also has this madness in him which translates into his cinema. You will see a mad streak in me, in Abhishek, in Lara and also in Bobby and that’s purely because Shaad has directed this film. If there was any other director you wouldn’t have seen that madness streak. I think he’s really relaxed and he’s like a sweet teddy bear with his psycho hair out.
