“I have a few offers for roles in short and full length feature films, which I will get working on at the end of the year. I have also got a few offers to MC, like the Indian Beauty show Ms Melbourne Glamorous 2015 in October,” says Preeti, who has also been appointed Youth Ambassador by South Asian Communities Link Group – a not for profit organization that aims at promoting harmony, unity and peace amongst the member communities.
