Model turned actress Preeti Jhangiani who shot to fame with the music album, Yeh Hai Prem, has returned to Sandalwood after eight years.
Preeti debuted in Kannada with Upendra’s Omkara (2004), which was directed by Shivamani. The film was an average grosser and the actress slipped under the radar in Sandalwood.
Now director Jayatheertha has brought her back to Sandalwood for his film, Tony, which stars Srinagara Kitty in the lead role.
“Preethi plays a CEO of a company in the film. When we were looking for a prominent personality, we thought Preeti would fit the bill. When we asked her to play the role, Preeti immediately gave her nod. Preeti has shot for three days for the film. Though it’s a small role, it is a prominent one and I think it will be one of the highlights of the film,” said the director.
