Sanjay Dutt's niece enters Bollywood
Nazia Hussain, grand niece of the late Nargis Dutt and niece to actor Sanjay Dutt, is all set to make her debut in Bollywood with 'Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai'.
Nazia, who has been making news on her family connections, acknowledges to being compared with dynamic actress Preity Zinta but strives to create her own persona.
"I have always been compared with Preity Zinta. That is a huge compliment; she is beautiful, but I want people to like me for my own!" says the dimpled Nazia.
Aditya Samanta, grand son of filmmaker Shakti Samanta, her co-star in the Movie Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai, comments, "I always had a secret crush for Preity Zinta. Those who have seen the promos and the trailers feel that Nazia and me share a great chemistry and look good together.
"For now we all hope that this chemistry works its magic at the box-office too," he said.
The buzz is that Preity does not mind her lookalike Nazia's presence at all.
Meanwhile, Nazia says is a fitness enthusiast. However, going to the gym is a boring task for her and she would rather prefer to run.
While shooting for Yeh Jo Mohobbat Hai they had a heavy schedule in Udaipur.
Nazia did not know the streets and bylanes very well and yet did not want to miss her daily cardio.
She coaxed co- star Aditya Samanta to come along with her for a sprint early in the morning. S
he used to give him a wake up call every morning at 5am and they used to go jogging, exploring the city in a sense.
The duo really got along very well and share a close bond.
Nazia's film Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai produced by Aradhana Films releases on August 3.
