Mumbai, March 21 (Calcutta Tube) After two years’ break from acting, Preity Zinta has decided to wear the grease paint, but before that she has to get back in shape.
‘This year for me is about getting back into movies and the entertainment industry. I had let myself go for some time because I had taken a break. I had put on seven-and-a-half kg. But then I lost all of it because I can’t afford to look like that in a film,’ Preity told IANS.
Asked to reveal the names of the projects she is working on, the 36-year-old declined.
‘I’ll start working on films this year for sure, but my lips are sealed. Announcement will come from the producers. But I’ll be doing some real cool films,’ she added.

Actress Bipasha Basu, known for her fitness levels, will launch her second fitness DVD soon.
‘I’m working on it and it will come out in July. I was supposed to shoot it a couple of months back, but I’ve been very busy. My schedules were really tight; so I pushed it back. I’ll film it as soon as possible,’ Bipasha told IANS.
Her first DVD was titled ‘BB-Love Yourself’.
‘The first one did fabulously. It is still selling like hot cakes. The second one is also going to tap that many people. It’ll be a completely different routine. It’s not going to be like the first one, which was a 60-day routine for weight loss,’ said the actress, who will be seen in ‘Dum Maaro Dum’.
