It was an item number in 'Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna' that did the trick for first time director Prem Raj and Preity Zinta.
Though the film starred Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor in lead roles, the ones who gained the most were Prem and Preity.
A bond developed between the two and as the duo stayed in touch for months, 'Ishkq In Paris' was born. Now that the film is making brisk progress and is all set for release, Prem feels that the stage is set for him to ensure that Preity's gamble on him pays for her.
"If Preity has chosen me in the whole industry to direct her maiden production, it is good enough for me", says Prem who is super excited about the way his film is progressing and creating buzz for all the right reasons, "Ultimately both of us are mature professionals.
Both of us are well aware of the stakes that we have put into 'Ishkq In Paris'.
I now just want to prove that the gamble she has taken works for her. Also, I have to prove myself now with this opportunity."
With Rhehan Malliek in lead along with French actress Isabelle Adjani in a special role and Salman Khan in a cameo, 'Ishkq In Paris' releases all over on 5th October.
