Mumbai, September 19 
By Our Bollywood Reporter   Ms Sheena MUMBAI: After her scorching liplocks with Saif Ali Khan in Yash Raj Films’ Salaam Namaste, public opinion is that Preity Zinta is a better on-screen kisser than the original smooch siren Mallika Sherawat.

Zinta doesn’t know how to react to her latest claim to fame. ‘‘I don’t know what people mean when they say that. But I admit that I had reservations about the kisses,’’ she says.

The actor almost didn’t work in Salaam Namaste. ‘‘I took a week to say yes to Adi (Aditya Chopra). I just wasn’t sure if I could pull it off,’’ she says. Watch Preity Zinta Hot Pics                            

In the end, the film’s script convinced her. And also the fact that the makers would not use the kisses as a publicity gimmick. ‘‘I knew that the entire second half of the film dealt with pregnancy so we had to show intimate scenes. Anyway, we’ve come a long way from showing two flowers meeting as a symbol for kissing,’’ she says.

Zinta feels Salaam Namaste is right up there in her personal favourite list. ‘‘I like my character, Ambar. She’s modern, progressive and not a bechari. But she still wants a marriage and the father of her baby to accept the child.’’ Unlike Ambar though, Zinta doesn’t believe in the concept of live-in relationships. ‘‘That’s not for me unless someone wants to live in my suitcase because I travel so much,’’ she laughs.

Physically, working in Salaam Namaste was pretty taxing. Zinta had to move around with a plaster of Paris prosthetic to show her pregnant mound. She also trained with three trainers for over six months to carry off her Aussie wardrobe. ‘‘I slogged but it was all worth it because I’ve never looked or felt fitter,’’ she says.

Zinta, who is currently shooting in New York for Shirish Kunder’s debut Jaan-e-man, narrates how a Chinese couple stopped her at Times Square and complimented her profusely. ‘‘According to me, that was a big moment for Hindi cinema. Two Chinese nationals watching our film in New York. Wow!’’ she exclaims.

Her happiness dims at the mention of her Jaan-e-man co-star Salman Khan. Apparently, Zinta is really miffed with him after Tapegate. ‘‘I’m tired of this controversy. I’m working with Salman and we’re both professionals. That’s it. I’d rather talk about Salaam Namaste,’’ she says.   Sheena
