On the perception in the industry about Abhay being arrogant, she said, “He is not arrogant. I think he is reserved, private. People judge him from outside but when they get to know him they get a different perception about him.” As for marriage, Preeti doesn’t see it happening in the near future. “I feel like I am just starting off with this right now, I want to achieve so much. We are happy and secure with each other... Marriage is a full time job and I need to be ready for that part of my life, but right now I just want to do good work,” the actress said.
Preeti shares screen space with Abhay in ‘One By Two’. She felt it would be interesting for them to come together for the film. “I think one can’t presume how it is going to be... I went with the flow. Initially, he was just producing it and then he came on board as an actor. From day one we decided to keep this professional because at the end of the day it’s a big thing to make a movie,” she said. Abhay has always been lauded for his acting abilities and Preeti looks upto him as an actor. She said she was initially intimidated to work with him. “The first shot we did together, there was nervousness in me because I wanted to impress him, I wanted his approval. That was initial, but then it was comfortable once I switched into the character... I think you are constantly learning things, I feel I have lots to learn,” she said. Preeti said that Abhay doesn’t praise her work that much. “I have seen him praise everybody else. I don’t know if he praises me behind my back or not, he has definitely never praised me,” she said.
