The film features Sunny Deol in the lead as a gangster from Uttar Pradesh.
According to Neeraj, Preity pulled the character off with ease.
"Preity plays a Uttar Pradeshwali. Her character is a gangster's daughter and a no-nonsense UP gangster herself who is also 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.
Neeraj said: "Preity's interpretation of the firebrand wife's character is bang-on. She will not be seen as an actor suited only for urbane sophisticated roles after Bhaiyyaji Superhitt.
"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.Soldier, which was also her first release in a leading role, was a major hit.
