Ask upcoming actor Kiran Janjani which actress he would like to work with and he says, “Preity Zinta, without doubt.” And we learn that the reason he chooses this effervescent lass in not only for her acting talents, but also for her simple, down-to-earth nature.

He narrates to us, “I was a purser and a model before I took up acting. One day Preity was traveling in the same plane I was on duty on and she came up to me and told me, ‘I’ve seen you somewhere. You are a model. Why are you doing this job? You should get into acting.’ It was really nice of her.”

We’re sure Kiran was ‘flying high’ after that. One could probably find him on Cloud 9.
