In a throwback interview with The Indian Express in 2017, talking about marriage and women, 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." (Also Read: Gauahar Khan Addresses Her Pregnancy Rumours With Hubby, Zaid Darbar, Slams Trollers)
