Bollywood actress Preity Zinta says certain scenes in “Ishkq in Paris” are inspired by her life. The film also has bits from director Prem Raj’s life.
“Ishkq in Paris”, Preity’s first production venture, is releasing May 24.
Talking about the film, she said: “(It) is not ispired from my life, but yes certain instances (are inspired from my life). I won’t lie about that.”
“Not only mine, in fact it (film) has some bits from our director’s life (Prem Raj) and from my PR (public relations) officer’s life. I mean we have not left anyone,” Preity said here Friday while promoting the film.
In the film, Preity plays a half-Indian, half-French girl who falls in love in Paris, one of the most expensive cities in the world.
She said “we have added something or the other from everybody’s life because I think somewhere art imitates life”.
“Instead of taking from south Indian movies, English movies or European movies, we have been very true to ourselves,” Preity added.
There was a special reason why Paris was chosen as the city in focus.
“Paris is a city known for two things – fashion and romance. So, to be fashionably in love, there is no other place to be in, but Paris,” said Preity.
