In an old interview, Preity had opened up about marriage and women. She had mentioned that she feels lucky to be married to a man like Gene who supports her and pushes her to do movies. Preity had said:
"Women, in general, are superwomen. They take care of the home and work. They are very few men who do that. For me it is very simple, I am married, working and very happy. I am lucky that I am married to a person who actually pushed me into doing a movie. I thought I didn't want to do any more movies and I moved to the business side of life."
Preity Zinta had made her debut in Bollywood with the film, Dil Se along with Shah Rukh Khan.
