In a recent interview, Preity Zinta was asked if she had ever been at the receiving end of unwanted advances. In a clip doing the rounds on internet, Preity is seen laughing and saying, “No, I haven’t. I wish I had! At least, I would have an answer to tell you.”
Preity Zinta later clarified and said that controversial editing was done to take her response out of context. The whole #MeToo movement has exposed the dirty side of Bollywood. The whole saga started with Tanushree Dutta accusing Nana Patekar of sexual harassment, which took place in 2008 on the sets of ‘Horn OK Pleassss’.
After that, the whole controversy gathered momentum and the likes of Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath, Sajid Khan and Anu Malik were named and shamed in public.
Preity Zinta is not known to make indecent or controversial comments and has always conducted herself with dignity. The diva, apart from being an actress, is also a successful entrepreneur and has a stake in IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab. Now, after Preity’s clarification, hopefully this controversy is put to rest once and for all.
