Bollywood’s dimpled beauty Preity Zinta is celebrating her 45th birthday today and probably the first wish she has received from the film fraternity on social media is from Madhuri Dixit.
Madhuri took to Twitter to shower Preity with love on the occasion of her birthday.
“To the one with the warmest heart, Happy Birthday @realpreityzinta! May you always spread smiles around you. Keep being your infectious happy self. Sending you lots of love & hugs (sic),” the Dhak Dhak girl wrote.

Coming back to Madhuri and Preity, both the actresses had worked together in Yeh Raaste Hain Pyar Ke, released in 2001. The movie also starred Ajay Devgn in the lead role.

A 2009 report suggested that the actresses became close friends when Preity started staying in the United States. Madhuri was also living in the US with her husband Sriram Madhav Nene.
“When Madhuri heard that Preity was in the US, she called her over to her place. Preity didn’t disappoint her, making it a point to visit her Denver home and having a ‘lovely’ dinner,” the report had said.
Preity Zinta made her acting debut in the 1998 release Dil Se, which was shouldered on Shah Rukh Khan and Manisha Koirala. She played the supporting role of Preeti Nair, a potential bride for Shah Rukh’s character in Dil Se. After the 1998 film, Preity was paired opposite Bobby Deol in Soldier the same year.
Preity Zinta was last seen in the film Bhaiaji Superhit (2018).
