Preity tries to break world record, fails

Bollywood actress Preity Zinta who hasn't been seen in any film since more than two years now (other than her itsy-bitsy item number in Main Aurr Mrs Khanna ) has now opted to make her debut as a television host on the small screen. The dimpled lass is all set to host the show Guinness World Records – Ab India Todega on Colors Channel.
The actress was in talks with the channel for the show since some time and she finally inked the deal early this week. In fact Preity Zinta also shot for the promo of the show early this week where she made an attempt to break a world record by pulling a truck by herself but failed. Though the channel is tight-lipped, if trade circles are to be believed Zinta is being paid between Rs 20-30 lakh per episode, which is a decent figure for an actress who hasn't been popular in the recent past.
Speaking about the new show and the host, Ashvini Yardi, Head, Programming, Colors said, "Preity is the perfect choice as the host for the show as both she and Guinness World Records are debuting on the Indian small screen. Guinness World Record – Ab India Todega is a fresh concept and with Priety's effervescent presence we are confident that the show will enthrall our viewers. Her enthusiasm and zing would definitely encourage the participants to go all the way in breaking the international records and make our country proud. As a mascot of the show, she would be the best connect with the audiences & re-instill in them the pride & joy of being an Indian."
Talking about her association, Preity Zinta said, "I was sure that whenever I do make a move to the small screen, it would be something I believe in. Guinness World Records – Ab India Todega is the perfect platform for my television debut. The show reflects my ideology to push oneself and compete with the best. There is also a feeling of pride in hosting a show that will put India on the international pedestal and will bring fame for Indians. I am sure viewers will have a good time watching the show."
