It was reported recently that Preity Zinta was leasing out her flat in Quantum Park, Khar. She wasn’t available to comment on the issue a the time the report was out but she later responded saying “I’ve lived here for about a decade and I’ll continue staying here. I’m not moving out of this place, so the question of leasing it to anyone doesn’t arise.”
According to the initial report, she wanted to lease out the flat and move into another flat. It was also reported that she planned using the money she gets by renting the flat to settle some dues she had; like the money that she reportedly owes Abbas Tyrewala.
Abbas had recently sued Preity Zinta over a cheque bouncing case. A cheque of Rs 19 lakhs was given to Abbas by Preity; as a remuneration for the dialogues he wrote for the film Ishkq in Paris. Preity didn’t comment on this but her friend said “The film has released and Abbas hasn’t proved which dialogue he wrote. Preity has about 80 people working for her, and every one of them is paid on time. So why would Abbas not be paid if he had done the work? Also, why should he be paid if he hasn’t done any work?”
