She’s a model. She’s a journalist. And she’s the latest PYT in Tinsel town.
Preetika (she refuses to use a surname) says she decided to try her hand at movies when modelling became monotonous. Her first ad — for Cadbury’s milk chocolate — was with none other than Amitabh Bachchan. Subsequently, she modelled for Acuvue lenses.
She has also modelled products like shampoo and toothpaste in countries like Bangladesh, Indonesia and Pakistan.
This Mumbai-bred, Sophia College graduate — who has also been contributing articles to newspapers — will make her big-screen debut in the Tamil film, Chikku Bukku, which co-stars Arya and Shriya.
“I wanted to do something new, Chikku Bukku came my way and I felt I should it a shot!,” Preetika smiles.
