Preity Zinta reveals why she stayed away from films for six years

Bollywood actor Preity Zinta, who is currently busy shooting the Rajkumar Santoshi film Lahore 1947, recently revealed why she took a long break from movies.

Speaking to DD India, Preity Zinta said she was focusing on her business and personal life. 

People forget that for women, as actors, your craft is important, you want a body of work, but you have a biological clock, the actor said.

She said she never dated anyone from the film industry, and so it was logical thing was for her to have her own family,

The actor said while it is great to play various roles, it is also important that you do not forget to live your life. 

“I wanted to have children. Business was also very exciting since it was something new. But mostly, I wanted to focus on my personal life,” she was quoted as saying.

She said she did not want to be an accomplished actor and a lonely person.

“You have a biological clock. Nature isn’t equal to you so you have to leave what you’re doing and focus on that. My kids are two-and-a-half and I am back at work. I am loving work, but there is so much guilt everyday that I’m missing out,” she said.
