MUMBAI: Preity Zinta who has lately been brushing up her French etiquettes, now goes straight into the role of a firebrand Varanasi-based wife in Neeraj Pathak’s Bhaiyyaji Superhit.
Preity has been cast as a gangster’s daughter and Sunny Deol’s loud and aggressive wife, and she’d have to practise hard for her part. The role apparently requires her to talk fast in the local accent.

Sunny Paaji and Preity Mademoiselle go back a long way, to Anil Sharma’s ‘The Hero’ where she had played a Kashmiri girl. Incidentally, if not interestingly, Sonam Kapoor is also playing a girl from Varanasi in Aanand Rai’s ‘Raanjhanaa’. With both Preity and Sonam Kapoor working hard on getting the Varanasi accent and body language right, the duo seem locked in quite a combat to get into the heart of a UP girl.
