Preity Zinta’s Daddy Is Dharmendra
Dharmendra will be doing the role of Preity Zinta’s dad in Jahnu Barua’s Har Pal. This role was supposed to be done by Amitabh Bachchan, which he had declined due to some unknown reasons.
The other person in Har Pal is Shiney Ahuja. The movie is about a love story between two neighbours shot in Northern India. Jahnu Barua who directed the critically acclaimed Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Maara was keen on having Amitabh Bachchan play Preity’s dad in the film.
Big B was obviously looking at bigger horizons considering the type of films he’s got lined up, Aladin, Teen Patti etc and declined the role. That’s when Preity who had always wanted to work with Dharmendra suggested the veteran actor’s name to the director.
Dharam Paaji was more than ecstatic but it was for a short time as the film has been facing several release problems. According to sources, “Jahnu is having trouble finding producers for the film. Not many were interested in investing money in the film and now with Shiney in jail, the future of Har Pal looks even bleaker.”
Let us see if the movie hits the screens!!!!!
