Shooting for ”Sangharsh” was tough, said actor Preity Zinta on Monday, adding she would like her 1999 film to get a sequel.


In a Q&A session on X, the actor was asked to name a film from her career whose story is further explored in a second part.

”Sangharsh for sure. Rest can’t think of any right now,” Zinta said as part of the #PZChat.

The 49-year-old actor, who will next be seen in period drama ”Lahore 1947”, said she broke her leg, chipped her teeth and cut her lip during the shooting of ”Sangharsh”. Directed by Tanuja Chandra, the movie also starred Akshay Kumar and Ashutosh Rana.

The psychological horror thriller opened to positive reviews, with critical acclaim for the performances by Zinta and Kumar, as well as Rana’s villainous turn.


”It was definitely a tough shoot, and it terrified me with so many hospital visits. Ashutosh was definitely mind blowing in the film,” she added.

A section of X users also asked Zinta, who has been away from the big screen for a while now, about starring in a film with frequent co-stars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. Her last film release was 2018’s ”Bhaiaji Superhit”.

”When we get a mind blowing script together that only him and I can do. Till then gotta wait (sic)” she said about reuniting with Shah Rukh, with whom she worked on films such as ”Dil Se..” and ”Veer-Zaara”.

Calling Shah Rukh a powerhouse of talent, the actor said he is ”one of the most generous & fun actors to work with”. ”He always keeps his co-star on their toes & is very entertaining & competitive. I learned a lot from him in Dil Se (sic)” she replied.

If there is a good script, everything is possible, said Zinta, when asked about working with Salman. The two have collaborated on several movies, including ”Chori Chori Chupke Chupke” and ”Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega”.

”Salman has a heart of gold & is the most loyal & amazing friend besides being an incredibly talented and effortless actor. His sense of music is excellent & he is extremely down to earth n simple when u get to know him (sic)” she added in a separate post.

”Lahore 1947” will see Zinta reunite with Sunny Deol following ”Farz”, ”The Hero: Love Story of a Spy”, and ”Bhaiaji Superhit”. Directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, ”Lahore 1947” is produced by Aamir Khan, and features music by A R Rahman and lyrics by Javed Akhtar.
