MUMBAI:What is the owner of Kings XI Punjab doing with the hero of Chennai Super Kings? Before the rumor mills start buzzing, Businessofcinema.com found out that Preity Zinta was shooting with Mahendra Singh Dhoni at a suburban studio in Mumbai for an edible oil brand that will soon be launched.
Confirming the story was an assistant at the shoot who disclosed, “Prahlad Kakkar is shooting the commercial for Emami’s latest edible oil. Both Mahi and Preity have been given elaborate leather outfits with the Gladiator feel. While Preity is decked in silver, Mahi is in black. The set has an outlandish feel.”
Shooting at Filmistan Studios, the duo wrapped up the ad in a day’s work. Dhoni, who was supposed to fly out to Nagpur in the evening to join his team mates for the first test against South Africa, delayed his flight plans in order to complete the shooting.
Ever since Zinta has come back from her holiday in the States, she has taken her career literally like a bull by its horns. First it was hosting an award show and then showing off her new found business acumen from her crash course at the Harvard University by playing her cards well at the Season 3 IPL auction.
A new year and a new beginning for the Dil Se actress who is loving every moment of it…
