The bubbly Preity Zinta is set to make a comeback into films and she spoke to Cinestaan.com about it. She will return with Neeraj Pathak’s long due project Bhaiyyaji Superhitt.

"It has taken a long while, but my film Bhaiyyaji Superhitt is finally complete. We're done with the shoot. Soon you will get to see the promos on air. After a long time, I'm doing a crazy role,” the actress said with a great sense of optimism.

When quizzed as to how she missed films, Zinta said, "When I got into business, I wanted to be taken seriously as a business person. I was offered a lot of films but I couldn’t take them. I was busy for a couple of years. One fine day, three of my favourite directors told me that while business is fine, I need to do lot more films. That’s when I took up Bhaiyyaji Superhitt. When I shot for it, I never felt that I missed doing films. So from here on I will be doing one or two films every year."

Zinta switched from a successful career as an actor to pursue business as the owner of a Indian Premiere League (IPL) franchise Kings XI Punjab.

"I won't like to be compartmentalised, but I think I got my professional stability right from my first. It was the same when I did business. In life, I have done what ever I aspired for. Films will always be my first love but I always wanted to do business too," said Zinta. 

Zinta shot to fame with a TV commercial, bagged plum Bollywood projects, scored few hits, had some misses, and she changed her priorities spending considerable time with her cricketing activities as co-owner of IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab. She returned to do one-two films, and even produced one — Ishkq in Paris( 2013). She married American executive Gene Goodenough in February but has largely remained out of the limelight. 

The 41-year-old will also be seen endorsing a beauty cream. When asked about heroines from the 90s, like Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi and Kajol, finding their space in the ad world, Zinta said, "All I can say is that advertisers go with the flow, as how things are and I don’t think there’s any rule per se as to how you are. Who suits whatever market those are the kinds of ads you end up doing. So, I don’t see myself doing a bubbly, perky ad which requires a teenager. Everyone has a different time and different space in their life. That’s how you move with it."
