MUMBAI: It takes a whole lot of surplus funds to postpone a film’s release.

Bollywood actress Preity Zinta scheduled to make her comeback, has not only put off the release of her maiden production’s release indefinitely she has made it clear to her entire team that the film would be released only when the director Prem Raj who is seriously ill, is able to complete all the post-production work.

Says Prem gratefully, “I offered to let someone else take over the post-production. But Preity is very clear on this issue. She told me we’re in this together and only I will complete the post-production of ‘Ishkq In Paris’, no matter how long it takes. I am grateful to Preity for standing by me even if it meant postponing our film’s release for the third time.”

It is now uncertain when ‘Ishkq In Paris’ would release since Prem leaves for surgery in the first week of December.

“Hopefully I will be fully healed after the surgery. I have a very simple logic for being hopeful. How much more would God want to test me?” wonders the beleaguered filmmaker. The film was originally slated to release on 9th November, 2012.

Meanwhile the bubbly actress was spotted on singing show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ promoting the film.

Wearing a simple yellow knit top, casual jeans and a waist length chain, Preity was mesmerized by the contestant’s beautiful voices.

On Preity’s desire, singer Wajid strummed the guitar and sang a song from her film.

Also featuring Rhehan Malliek, Isabelle Adjani, Shekhar Kapur, and Salman Khan in a cameo, ‘Ishkq In Paris’ is a story of two complete strangers, who after having met on a train from Rome to Paris, end up spending the evening together in the romantic city.
