Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], February 12 (ANI): Missed watching actor Preity Zinta on the big screen? If yes, then there’s good news for Bollywood lovers out there.
Preity will be seen sharing screen space with Sunny Deol in director Rajkumar Santoshi’s film ‘Lahore 1947’.
The update was confirmed by Santoshi via his quote in a statement.
“After a long time, Preity Zinta is again playing a very important role for the silver screen with Lahore 1947. She is indeed an extremely talented, finest, and most natural actress in our industry. Whichever character she plays she totally invests herself in it and makes the audience feel that she is made for that character. Interestingly, the audience will see her again with Sunny Deol. This on-screen pair has always been immensely loved by the audience. Above all, this film’s script demands a pair that is as accurate as Sunny and Preity,” Santoshi shared.

Nothing can replace those memories & I will forever be grateful to Yash Uncle for making this incredible film. It was the last time he was on set. There will never be anyone like you Yash Uncle [?] You took a piece of my heart with you when you left. This film will forever remind me of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will forever love you,” she wrote on Instagram a few days ago while recalling working in the film.
