After her power packed performance in THE LAST LEAR; Preity Zinta, has again proved her mettle by getting nominated for Deepa Mehta's HEAVEN ON EARTH yet again. The actor has been nominated for the internationally acclaimed Genie Awards. She has been nominated under the 'Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role' category; the film has also been nominated for Best Original Screenplay.
The spunky babe will be rubbing shoulders with Hollywood biggies like Susan Sarandon and Ellen Burstyn who have been nominated for EMOTIONAL ARITHMETIC and THE STONE ANGEL respectively. But what makes this news big is the fact that Preity's nomination is the first ever nomination by an Indian in these awards. The nominations were announced by The Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television (ACCT) recently.
The awards will be announced on the 4th of April at Ottawa in Canada.
