A true hard core Punjabi film buff can never forget Anurag Singh’s 2012 release ‘Yaar Annmulle’. It will not be wrong to say that till date no other Punjabi film could match up to the benchmark set by this film when it comes to presenting a college love story.
The story and characterisation of each and every character was such that it made a deep-rooted connect with its audience. Well, talking about ‘Yaar Annmulle’ how can we not talk about the actress which had everyone’s heart! Also Read : Pakistani Artists Who’ve Contributed Enough To Punjabi Industry
Yes, that’s ‘PRINKA’ (Priyanka) aka JENNY GHOTTRA for y'all.
Prinka’s hilarious yet cute love story with Khadak Sher Singh (Harish Verma) made everyone laugh out loud. No wonder, even a decade after the film’s release, people still remember her by the name of her debut role, ‘Prinka’.
Though the superhit film made us believe that the film has paved way for a new talent promising her bright future in the industry but sadly we couldn’t really see much of her.
Not much is available about her on social media but we tried to dig out as much details as we could.
So, first of all Jenny’s real name is Jagdip. She was born in a Punjabi family and brought up in Canada. She always wanted to pursue her career in modelling following which she came to Mumbai in the hope of getting work.

In an interview, Jenny had revealed that it was one fine day she was waiting to meet a modelling agent, and in the waiting lobby, she met Anurag Singh, the director of ‘Yaar Annmulle’. She was asked to audition for the film, and she was cast as the leading lady on her first attempt.
