Known for her cute and bubbly image Preity Zinta is all set to surprise everyone with her author backed role in Heroes . Impressed by her performance director Samir Karnik just can’t stop raving about Preity.

Preity plays Salman's widow who single-handedly struggles to bring up her son. Apparently Preity has gone through an acting school to portray the character of a rural Punjabi woman. Interestingly Anupam Kher who has worked with her in most of her films gave her lessons on how to imbibe the dialect and body language.

According to the director Samir Karnik this is going to be one of her best performances till date. “Priety who is known for her bubbly, enthusiastic self worked on her body language and observed the locals to portray the demure, silent but strong woman that her character is in the film. If you ask me, I think this is one of her best performances to date.”

The most talk about thing about the film is Preity’s tractor driving scenes. Apparently a method actor Priety learnt to drive the tractor for Heroes . Speaking about it Samir said, “Preity was very nervous but she pulled it off by driving a full circle of the field and bringing it to a stop only a few feet away from Sohail, Vatsal and Dwij. Even though she had control over the tractor every time I shouted cut people from the crew would run to help her stop it, and every time she would do it on her own, she would give a look as though what are you doing here I got it under control. She was super.”
