MUMBAI: Preeti Jhangiani debuted with music video Chhuimui Si Tum Lagti Ho and the film Mohabbatein. The actress has said that she was typecast as a bechari bahu and that she found it difficult to distance herself from this image.

Preeti shared that the audiences were unwilling to accept her in edgy roles and that she has fans who want to see her only in sarees to this day.

She told a portal that she consciously tried to branch out, but audiences weren't having it. "Some people did try to change it. I did Victoria No 203 where I played a negative character; I absolutely loved it. I still use photos from that photoshoot, I am in so much love with them. I really did try to get away from the typecast but the audience didn’t accept it. Even if I wanted to do a kissing scene, they wouldn’t accept it, though I did have a kissing scene in a Rajshri video too. In films, I feel, people just refused to accept it. I still have diehard fans who tell me not to wear anything but just saree kind of things," she said.

The diva added, "People still call me the ‘Chhuimui girl’ or the ‘Mohabbatein girl’. I am stuck with these two tags and I am fine with it. Midway into my career, I was like, ‘Can you please offer me something else?’ I didn’t want to play the bechari bahu (helpless daughter-in-law) anymore. I was not denied roles but I was completely typecast."

Preeti is married to Parvin Dabas and is a mother to two boys.
