The trio was in the city to shoot for Jahnu Barua's (of Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara) movie Har Pal.
Preity plays a local girl in this movie produced by Nav Jeevan Films. She refused to divulge more about her role.
But she did speak about the experience of shooting in the beautiful locations of the Meghalaya capital and its matrilineal system.
"It is really impressive to see that women are being respected here," Preity said. "Their position here can be termed as the best."
For yesteryear he-man Dharmendra, it was Shillong's serene atmosphere that appealed.
The actor -- who took up the role after Amitabh Bachchan [Images] backed out due to date problems -- hoped the film would help in promoting the city as a tourist destination and a permanent location for shooting films.
