Priety Zinta who just turned 43 today is a happy woman now. She got married to the love of her life Gene Goodenough last year and settled down in matrimony. Juggling between Los Angeles and Mumbai, Priety is enjoying every bit of togetherness with her hubby and how! Priety debuted in 1998 with Mani Ratnam’s highly acclaimed film Dil Se with Shah Rukh Khan and made a mark in the industry with her hatke acting chops and that genial dimpled smile! She later went on to do films like Kya Kehna and Sangharsh which were path breakers of the nineties. She, with her girl next door looks and amazing vibe, defined the 90s and also marked the change in the way a Bollywood heroine was changing.

Farhan Akhtar’s Dil Chahta Hai (2001) which was a cult film showed Priety is a totally different light which defined her as a today’s girl. Carefree but rooted, beautiful but intelligent, Priety Zinta in many ways played characters which we identified with. Her Barkha Dutt spin off in Laksha too was very appreciated by masses. In Karan Johar’s Kal Ho Na Ho, we saw a vulnerable, gloomy side of the actress which again is a brave thing to pull off.

The Veer Zara star moved to IPL from Bollywood and later turned her attention to entrepreneurship. Her last appearance was in a Saif Ali Khan film Happy Ending a couple of years ago and later in her own production Ishq In Paris which was a major flop at the BO, it is unclear when we would see her on screen again. But we really hope that we do soon! For we have missed her bubbly, chirpy self and really want her to get back to Bollywood, no?
