Vansh Bhardwaj slaps Preity Zinta
It was an embarrassing moment for bubbly, chatty Preity Zinta when her co-star Vansh Bhardwaj unknowingly hit her hard while enacting a slap scene. "When we were shooting the film, there was a scene where my co-star had to slap me and, of course, it was a mistake as he took one step forward and actually went smack across my face. It was the most humiliating experience of my life because everyone saw me getting slapped," Preity told reporters.
Preity who has recently shifted from masala to off-beat films got to encounter with reality when the particular incident took place on the set of Deepa Mehta’s Heavan On Earth. "It changed my whole perception towards my role and I realized that it’s so terrible to strip a woman of her spirit. It’s better to die than to let your spirit die. This film took me to another zone; it just shattered me because I am someone who would immediately stand up for myself," she said.
In the film, she is playing a tortured woman whose life turns uglier than hell when she is tormented by her husband. Preity who now opts for only matured social awakening film says that she will return to commercial flick if she is offered a role with "substance."
Her non-commercial flicks include, The Last Lear and Jahnu Barua`s Har Pal.
