But I did not stay away from other languages and was pretty much busy with other projects” says Preeti, who is playing the CEO of a company in the suspense thriller film, Tony. “I play a very strong woman of today and this is something nobody has asked me to play before. I was usually considered to play soft roles and this character is kind of a departure from my previous films,” she adds.

My husband, Parvin Dabbas, has always supported me as he is also a part of the industry as a producer, director and an actor. So, it has never been an issue to him. Right now, I miss my son, during hectic shooting schedules. But, I have my mother to take care of him and Jai is comfortable with her,” she says.
