MohabbateinPreeti Jhangiani confident despite failures

Six years ago, this beautiful girl with a sweet smile endeared herself to cinegoers with the simplicity of her portrayal of the shy girl next door in Aditya Chopra's Mohabbatein .

Despite a dream debut, which saw her share screen space with superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan , Preeti Jhangiani , even six years after the film, has still to establish a niche for herself on the Bollywood firmament while her 'Mohabbatein' co-star Jimmy Shergill is today a known face in filmdom.




"It was not that I had disappeared after 'Mohabbatein'. After it I signed no less than 10 films some of them big banner films like Awara Paagal Deewana and LoC . Call it my wrong choice of movies or sheer bad luck but many of these didn't do well," Preeti told a news agency.

In fact, Preeti's recent films like 'Chaahat-Ek Nasha' and 'Sukh' also failed at the box office.

Her films in the last few years may not have established her as an actor to reckon with in Bollywood but they have nevertheless contributed to Preeti's growth as an actress.

"When I did my first role in 'Mohabbatein', I was a shy newcomer. But now, having done more than ten films and essaying a variety of roles, I am more confident as an actor," Preeti said.

Currently, Preeti is all excited about her latest film 'Chand Ke Paar Chalo', produced by Salim. In the film Preeti is paired opposite newcomer Sahib.

"For the first time in my career, I am doing an author-backed role of a woman who undergoes a transformation from a street dancer to a Bollywood actress. It is the story of her journey from being a small Banjaran, who earns her living through dancing in the street, to a 'glamorous star' in the glitzy world of Bollywood. In this sense, it is quite unlike a multistarrer like 'Awara Paagal Deewana' where one tends to get lost in a crowd. Also, while many of my earlier films had me in 'soft' roles, in 'Chand Ke Paar Chalo', I play a woman with shades of grey," she said.
