The actress is gearing up for her upcoming film Bhaiyyaji Superhitt and says she doesn't feel any pressure.

"There is absolutely no pressure because I'm not producing it. I'm not stressed. I think it's okay. If you look at any actor in their entire career, whenever they have had their first production, they have all fallen flat because you go all over the place... which is fine because I'm still very proud of my film (Ishkq in Paris, which she produced)."

The actress says Bhaiyyaji Superhitt, which also stars Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, is special because she has never played an "earthy character" before.

Talking about women-centric films being made in the country, Preity said: "I don't think there are woman-centric films. I think there is a great story. If you look at my first film Kya Kehna, then you will say it was a woman-centric film. I don't look at it like that... I think a great story is very important," she said.

Preity added that entertainment is important in a film, but having a positive message is pivotal too.

"I also feel that entertainment is fun, but it's always good when a lot of people watch movies, they get very influenced by movies," she said.

Asked how she juggles between her personal and professional life, Preity said: "I am happy and lucky that I am married to somebody who pushed me back into doing a movie... Because I thought I don't want to do any more films and I moved to the business side of life."
