Preeti Jhangiani (born 18 August 1980 in Mangalore, Karnataka) is an Indian actress and model. She is fluent in Sindhi, Hindi, Telugu, English. She is cusp-born (Leo/Virgo) and stands 5'5" in height. She studied in St. Xavier's College, Ahmedabad.
Preeti first appeared in a Rajshri Music Video 'Chui Mui' opposite Abbas, this made them as well as the Koala bear symbol - famous. Thereafter she has appeared in Nirma Sandal soap ads. Her first film was in Malayalam which was called Mazhavillu. She made her Bollywood debut in 2000 with Mohabbatein. The film starred Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan and Jugal Hansraj as well as four other debutantes (Shamita Shetty, Uday Chopra, Kim Sharma and Jimmy Shergill). The film was a huge hit and started her film career. Her next hit was the comedy Awara Paagal Deewana, but she did not really have much of a role.
After the release of Mohabbatein, she received about a dozen offers, but before she could commence filming, she became so ill, that she was on anti-biotics - which altered her visage and caused weight fluctuations. She did recuperate and went on to act in some more movies, but has yet to make her mark on Bollywood. She has since been acting in mostly B grade movies. She earlier had an image of a homely girl but later on she started showing her skin rampantly, like in her movies Chhahat ek nashaa Haseena etc.
She has been romantically linked with Bollywood actor, Aftab Shivdasani, also a Sindhi; model Gautam Rodha, and is currently engaged to Feroz Nadianwala's younger brother, Mushtaq. She lives in Bandra (West), Bombay 400050.
