Preity had initially launched an online search for a young girl with a dimpled right cheek, who could play her younger version in 'Ishkq In Paris'. But she found a young Preity in her own family! Maya, who is Preity's brother's daughter, flew from Los Angeles to Paris to shoot for the film.
'Maya is very young, so she didn't really care much about acting. For her, it was more of an adventure. She was more than excited to be part of her aunt's film. From the professional point of view, she was extremely nice to work with,' director Prem Raj said in a statement. 'Ishkq in Paris' is not just Preity's comeback film, but also marks her foray into film production. It will release Nov 2.
