Preity Zinta insists that she's having a lot of fun playing a bad actor in Rituparno Ghosh's The Last Lear.
"Playing a bad actor against Mr Bachchan in The Last Lear
was a pleasure, especially when I had a director like Rituparno Ghosh to guide me to be bad on camera.
Ritu is a magician, and so calm," Says Preity, " As for my looks
you've to see what Ritu has done with me. I've never looked like this before. It was all so much fun, and didn't seem like we were making a very serious film."
While the Big B plays a veteran Shakespearean actor, Preity plays the bad actor of the troupe in the film. Coming back to her favourite subject, Preity says, "I thought I
spoke good English....until I heard Mr Bachchan recite Shakespearean dialogues in his baritone..."
The actress has just returned after four days shooting with Mr Bachchan in Mussourie. Says Preity, "The last time I was in Mussourie, it was for another shoot. And guess
It was again with Mr Bachchan for Armaan. I've already decided, if I ever direct a film I'll cast him in it."
