Mumbai: Actress-businesswoman Preity Zinta, whose current legal conflict with ex-beau Ness Wadia has dominated the headlines, is set to make a comeback with Neeraj Pathak's 'Bhaiyyaji', in which she plays a ferocious bandit.

The film will also feature Sunny Deol as a gangster from Uttar Pradesh.

According to Pathak, Preity has pulled it off with aplomb.

"Preity plays an Uttar Pradeshwali. She plays a gangster's daughter. She's no-nonsense UP gangster and Sunny Deol's wife," he added.

Apparently Preity's transformation into a foul-mouthed rustic bandit was so convincing that Sunny wants to cast her as Sohni's Punjabi mother in the remake of 'Sohni Mahiwal', a film that the actor reportedly wants to do with his son in the lead.

Pathak said: "Preity's interpretation of the firebrand wife's character is bang-on. She will not be seen as only for urbane sophisticated roles after 'Bhaiyyaji'."

"We've 12 days' shooting left. We will complete the shooting post-monsoon," said the director.

In the past Preity had worked with both Sunny and Bobby in 'The Hero: Love Story Of A Spy' and 'Soldier'. Interestingly, both the films were hits.
