November 20 : Preity G Zinta, who was in a hiatus from acting in Bollywood for several years, made a comeback in her self-produced film Ishkq in Paris in 2013, which failed to make a mark. Since then she had almost disappeared from the big screen, but soon she will be seen on American TV.
An elated Preity took to her Instagram handle and shared a picture with her 6.8 million fans and followers, announcing that she has started shooting for an episode of a spinoff of Fresh Off the Boat, and was into her second day of shooting. The Veer-Zaara actress posted a beautiful mirror image of her with her makeup artist, and wrote, “And so it begins.... On location to shoot Fresh Off The Boat. Now that the first day of the shoot is over & I’m still alive and not shaking with nervous energy .... here is a photo�� It’s amazing how a change of scene can make you feel like a newcomer. Loving and absorbing it all.”
The Kal Ho Naa Ho star had been roped in as a guest star along with Indian actor-comedian Vir Das for an episode of Fresh Off the Boat spinoff series titled Magic Motor Inn. The episode, penned by Fresh Off the Boat writer-producer Rachna Fruchbom, is about an Indian family whose daughter attends school. Preity and Vir play her parents. Preity was first seen in a Canadian film titled Heaven on Earth, for which she bagged the Silver Hugo Award for Best Actress at the Chicago International Film Festival in 2008.
