Things haven’t been great past week or so. A tragedy struck the family and took a loved one away. So I was feeling really low. Which is why I have been out of action for some time now. But life goes on. Things are catching up at work too. And I am just about beginning to catch up on all the Cannes action. I was looking at some pictures of Indian actors at Cannes in the past few years and this one picture caught my eye.
It’s a picture of Preity Zinta, looking lovely as usual. But what caught my eye is the similarity between her and my own personal style icon, Edie Sedgwick. I have always felt that Preity has, in the past few years, acquired a calm elegance and presence that oozes class and oomph. She has the same effervescence that Edie, known as the Factory Girl, possessed. And yes, the dimples. Look at the images. The chandelier earrings, the swept up hair, the twinkle in the eye. It’s all there.
When she started acting, she was known as bubbly and impish. But look at the woman she has become! The whole world is talking about Aishwarya Rai on the red carpet. But I’d put my vote on Preity any given day.
