A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity

All 25-year-old Mandeep Chadha wanted to do was to meet Preity Zinta once in his lifetime. He is huge fan of hers and will do anything to catch the slightest glimpse of her. So much so that he’s attended all her IPL matches — only in the hope of meeting her someday.

In tonight’s episode of ‘Live My Life 2’, Mandeep was flown down to Mumbai to live his favourite actor, Preity Zinta’s life for one whole day. On reaching Mumbai, he was put up in the presidential suite of a five-star hotel.

Several surprises awaited him through the day — a meeting with Prem Soni (the director of Preity’s upcoming film), a workout session with Yasmin Karachiwala (Preity’s trainer) and a photoshoot with Daboo Ratnani.

In fact, Preity surprised him by dropping in the middle of the photo shoot and posing right next to him. The highlight of Mandeep’s day, however, was when the two of them gorged on some delicious dahi puri. Catch the show on UTV Stars at 7 pm on October 28.
