"She knew superstars and not lesser actors like me (sic)," said Abhay. However, all that changed when Preeti met Abhay for the first time at the success party of his movie, Dev D (2009). It was then that Preeti got to know of Abhay, as she watched the movie before heading to the party. Preeti made her Bollywood debut in Shor in the City (2011).
Abhay, also confessed on the show that he didn't even look at the hoardings of his debut film, Socha Na Tha (2005). And that's because the actor "hated the hairstyle" in the movie.
