1Love is always real and true love is even more real!
2On love at first sight "It is superficial to fall in love with someone looking at their face. To me I need to discover the person. I would never look at someone and exclaim - He is the one!"
3On the changing face of Indian cinema "At one time I wondered if I was doing the right films, today I know I have made the right choices. Indian cinema is changing, not step by step but by leaps. New blood is coming in, mindsets are changing and our exposure to the world is ever- increasing. I am glad these positive changes are happening when I am in the industry and not ten years from now."
4Acting can truly take a toll on your nerves. I mean we have to be larger than life. Worse, I've seen actors acting off the sets too.
5You know what's the worst part about being an actress? It's the pressure to look gorgeous all the time and to behave perfectly. But I'm not perfect, nobody is.
6To act, you must know pain. You must know what it means to be in love, what it means to be rejected.
7I am proud to be part of today's Bollywood. I love dancing and lip synching to our songs.
8I want to bring a change and do something new and different in my profession, but in the beginning I'll have to toe line, I want to be known as a performer not a star.
9I am single and desperately looking for a good man in my life. I did have major crushes when I was younger but no serious relationship.
10Whenever I came across something that influenced me, I wanted to be that. So it varied from an astronaut, airhostess, army girl, to truck driver. Once, I wanted to be a nun - my mother wanted me to change schools after that...
11I lost my father when I was 13-years-old. He was a great man, my father, and very intelligent. I love him very much. I believe it's very important that parents have a personal connection with their children. It helps kids feel more secure, have a feeling of family, makes them feel loved.
1Starred in Shekhar Kapur's shelved film "Mantra"(2004), directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.Hrithik Roshan was approached for the lead role but declined.

3Niece Maya Zinta debuted in Ishkq In Paris.
4After the release of "Prem Aggan" Partho Gosh had signed Fardeen Khan and Preity Zinta for a film titled " Chaiyaan Chaiyaan". He decided to shelve the film a year later.
5Listed #41 by UK magazine Eastern Eye one of "Asia's Sexiest Women" (Sept/ 2006).

10Appeared in Manish Malhotra fashion show Freedom (2006).
11She narrowly escaped death twice in late 2004, once after an explosion at a Temptation concert in Colombo, and later in the Indian Ocean Tsunami.

13Has written three columns for BBC South Asia.
14Has two brothers, Deepanker Zinta and Manish Zinta, a year older and a year younger respectively. One of her brothers is a commissioned officer in the Indian Army.
