Bollywood actress Preity Zinta considered quite a few actors in the industry her good friends until she landed herself in a legal battle after slapping molestation charges against ex boyfriend Ness Wadia recently, finding herself all alone with no support from any of her so called “close friends”.
In the past, the dimpled babe stood up and publicly voiced her opinion against many Bollywood personalities including Shahrukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Yuvraj Singh, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, among others. Very recently, Preity expressed her displeasure on Alia Bhatt jokes that were doing the rounds.
However, Preity who is fighting a legal battle finds herself all alone. While Salman Khan broke into a gig when asked to comment on the issue, SRK said he would talk to the actress personally, and Saif.. well, he considers Ness a gentleman. Aamir Khan too chose to remain tight lipped when asked his views.
Celebs who actually voiced their opinion were very few. Mahesh Bhatt was one of them. He tweeted about the issue, “A Fairy tale love story turns into A HATE STORY! What an unfortunate end to the Priety Zinta Ness Wadia romance.”
Aamir’s wife Kiran Rao too supported Preity. “It’s unfortunate to hear that, it is always awful to hear someone from the film fraternity feel they are alone. So I hope she doesn’t feel alone. This is a very personal issue though. I mean I can’t comment on the issue because I don’t know the details of it but I do hope she manages to resolve the issue first, “ she said.
Shobha De expressed her views: “Let’s be honest : It takes guts to file an FIR against a powerful person who has allegedly been abusive in public. Abuse is abuse – verbal, physical, sexual. But the debacle that took place at the stadium on May 30, and which is dominating media space right now, will only erode whatever is left of the PZ brand.”
And finally Karan Johar said, “Of course, needless to say that my friendship with her is not only professional, but also deeply personal and she will always have my love and unconditional support.”
