Preity has overcome her grief

MUMBAI: It took a one month long fun-packed globe totting vacation for Preity Zinta to mend her broken heart and the gusty dame, who is back home now, is being her spunky, vivacious self again. The dimpled beauty, who made headlines for her unceremonious split with industrialist Ness Wadia, has now decided to make news for worthy professional reasons.

The smile is back and so is the bold attitude - Preity Zinta is all set to conquer filmdom once again. The actress, who has been the target of much media speculation is out to clear the air and set matters straight.

Just back from a holiday with family and friends in Europe and US, Preity told a news daily, “How nice to know that I was missed. I feel good when people ask where I have been. No, I hadn’t gone for good. I basically follow my heart. If I want to do something, I go for it, no matter what the repercussions. I had been travelling to America, London and Europe for a little less than a month.”

As to whether the vacation was a way to recoup from a broken relationship, the actress said, “I needed a break and I took one. Of course, I’ve gone through a break-up, but that’s personal. The only reason I speak to the press about what’s happening in my life is because I’m linked with the wrong men. Now, I want to work so hard that people discuss my professional life rather than my personal life. You can invite people to your home but you don’t take them to your bedroom. I’ve to preserve a certain part of me away from the limelight.”

And about heartache, Zinta said, “That’s life. It’s filled with unpredictable twists and turns. I have come out of the relationship smiling. Every experience in life helps you grow. You preserve the positive and move on. There’s no point dissecting it. Everything is so temporary. Even a Michael Jackson dies.”
