Today, BollyCurry celebrates the birthdays of two beautiful actresses who have won our hearts over the years, and they are none other than the tomboy Preity Zinta and the beautiful mother Amrita Arora.

Preity Zinta was born in Himachal Pradesh to Durganand Zinta, an officer in the Indian Army whom she lost at the age of thirteen in a car accident, and Nilprabha Zinta. She has an older brother Deepankar, who is also an army officer like her father, and a younger brother Manish. She studied in a boarding school until the age of eighteen and went on to graduate with an Honors Degree in English from St. Bede's College in Shimla. She then studied Criminal Psychology at university.

She debuted as a supporting actress with Dil Se.. in 1998 opposite Shah Rukh Khan and Manisha Koirala, which earned her many accolades. Preity Zinta's debuted as a lead actress later that same year with Soldier, which was a commercial. Zinta won the Filmfare Best Female Debut Award for her work in both her debut movies.

Her next Hindi release was Sangarsh (1999) opposite Akshay Kumar, which didn't do well at the box office but earned appreciation for the actress. Preity's next few releases, such as Kya KehnaHar Dil Jo Pyaar Karega and Mission Kashmir in 2000, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke and Dil Chahta Hai in 2001, The Hero: Love Story of a Spy, Koi Mil Gaya, and Kal Ho Naa Ho in 2003, were all super hits at the box office and did extremely well. However, there were also movies that didn't do so well yet still earned her appreciation, such as Dil Hai Tumhara (2001) and Armaan (2003). Preity has continued to experience success in blockbusters such as Veer-Zaara (2004), Salaam Namaste (2005) and Kabhie Alvida Na Kehna (2006).

After not appearing on the silver screen for six years, she finally returned for her fans as Ishkq in Ishkq in Paris (2013). She wrote the film herself and produced it under her own production company, PZNZ Media. Unfortunately, the film received negative reviews and didn't do well at the Box Office, but her efforts as a producer and writer was appreciated by the critics.

To celebrate her birthday, below is a mini-playlist of some of her most memorable songs:
  1. "Tera Rang Balle Balle" - Soldier
  2. "Kya Kehna" - Kya Kehna
  3. "Piya Piya" - Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega
  4. "Dil Laga Liya Maine" - Dil Hai Tumhaara
  5. "Koi Mil Gaya" - Koi.. Mil Gaya
  6. "Kuch To Hua He" - Kal Ho Na Ho
  7. "Tere Liye" - Veer-Zaara
  8. "Salaam Namaste" - Salaam Namaste
  9. "Kabhie Alvida Na Kehna" - Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
  10. "Bol Na Halke Halke" - Jhoom Barabar Jhoom
  11. "Kudiye Di Kurti" - Ishkq in Paris
On the other side, we have Amrita Arora who was born in 1981 to Joyce Polycarp and Anil Arora. She is currently married to Shakeel Ladhak, a businessman, and has two sons Azaan (2010) and Rayaan (2012). Actress Malaika Arora Khan is her sister.

She debuted as an actress with Kitne Door Kitne Paas (2002) opposite Fardeen Khan, but the film didn't do well at the box office and failed to impress. However, her next release of the year, Awara Pagal Deewana, an action comedy film, did extremely well. She then appeared in movies like Ek Aur Ek Gyarah (2003), Shart: The Challenge (2004), the controversial Girlfriend (2004), Rakht (2004), Deha (2006), Fight Club - Members Only (2006), Red: The Dark Side (2007), Rama Rama Kya Hai Dramaa (2008) and Hello (2008) which didn't do well at the box office and received mixed reviews from the critics. Her commercially successful movies are Golmaan Returns (2008) and Kambhakkht Ishq (2009), where she marked her presence in a supporting role.

However, Amrita is making a comeback on the silver screen with the thriller Ek Tho Chance releasing this year on 18th April.

To celebrate her birthday here is a playlist of some of her top songs:
  1. "Jise Hasna Rona" - Awara Paagal Deewana
  2. "Beimaan Mohabbat" - Ek Aur Ek Gyarah
  3. "Dilli Ki Sardi" - Zameen
  4. "Joshile Jawan Ho" - Fight Club - Members Only
  5. "Karle Baby Dance Wance" - Hello
  6. "Tha Kar Ke" - Golmaal Returns
From this BollyCurry writer and all the others, here's wishing Preity and Amrita a very happy birthday and all the success in the future!
