Preity Zinta has already received awards and accolades for her role in Deepa Mehta’s Heaven on Earth but the actress says that if her recent film Heroes touched her heart, Heaven On Earth broke her heart.
“It is the story of a real woman. Each scene is true. I play the role of a battered and abused housewife in the film. After I did the film I realised that domestic violence is such a universal problem,” says Preity.
Preity received the Silver Hugo Award for Best Actress in the Feature Film Competition section at the 44th Chicago International Film Festival recently.
“More than the woman, I want every man to see the film. Women often break down but you cannot break down their spirit. The film is a powerful story of hope and self-discovery,” says the actress.
