Filmfare Best Debut Award for Dil Se (1998), Star Screen Most Promising Newcomer - Female Award for Soldier (1998), Zee Cine Best female Debut for Soldier (1998),  IIFA Best Actress Award for Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), Filmfare Best Actress Award for Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003).
Preity, a graduate in criminal psychology, was born in Simla. Her father died when she was thirteen, in a car accident in which her mother was bed ridden for sometime. She has two brothers, one year younger and one year older than herself. Pretty, cheerful, outspoken and a bit extra-ambitious of her career, Priety takes a lot of care in choosing her roles.

Preity started her career as the wet and cool model in the Liril ad. Shekhar Kapoor, well known director, liked her in the ad and cast her in his film 'Tara Rum Pum'. But unfortunately the film never took off. However, her name was already doing the industry rounds. Preity's first release was Mani Ratnam's 'Dil Se' (1998) opposite Shahrukh Khan. In the film her role though small, was noticed and won her rave reviews. Her next film 'Soldier'  (1998), was also a hit. She played an impish, spoilt rich girl with great conviction in the film. Next she performed the role of a gritty young CBI trainee in search of a dreaded killer in Sangharsh (1999).

Critics began to take notice of her after her performance in Kya Kehna (2000). She followed her success with a string of movies including 'Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega' (2000), 'Mission Kashmir' (2000) and 'Farz' (2001). Her roles in 'Chori Chori Chupke Chupke' (2001), 'Dil Chahta Hai' (2001) and 'Dil Hai Tumhara' (2002), was appreciated and liked by all. But she really hit the highway in 2003 with great performances in 'The Hero', 'Armaan' and two smash hits 'Koi Mil Gaya' and 'Kal Ho Na Ho'. With these hits she became an actress to reckon with, in Bollywood.

She followed her success in 2004, with memorable performances in 'Lakshya' and 'Veer Zara'. Veer Zara was an emotional love saga typical of Yash Raj productions. Priety looked elegant and portrayed her role of a Pakistani woman with grace. The year 2005, began with a flop 'Khullam Khulla Pyar Karen', for Priety but she made it up with a big hit, 'Salaam Namasthe', which was inspired by the English flick 'Nine Months'.

Media shy about her personal life, Priety has been linked with a few of her co-stars but has always dismissed them as rumours. She dated Marc Robinson, one of the hottest models in India for sometime but later broke up with him. She is currently dating the heir to the Bombay Dyeing company, Ness Wadia.

Her screen presence, charm and down to earth nature has made her the favorite actress of almost all the directors and producers. Preity Zinta with her famous dimpled smile has come a long, long way from her modelling days to being one of Bollywood's most sought-after actresses today.
