Preity Zinta reveals she hasn't accused King's XI Punjab players of match fixing

Preity Zinta reveals she hasn't accused King's XI Punjab players of match fixing

20-08-2015

Bollywood and cricket continue to share an uneasy relationship especially in the IPL sphere. A major betting scandal has already led to a lifetime ban on Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra and now its Preity Zinta’s turn to find her way out of a fresh cricketing controversy. Reports have been doing the rounds that Preity recently had a meeting with the BCCI and revealed that some of her team players have been involved in match fixing activities. Preity’s team King’s XI Punjab includes a number of high profile players like Virender Sehwag and Mitchell Johnson and such a statement could indeed open a big can of worms. Films Of India But Preity herself has denied the rumours and declared that her statements to the BCCI have been mis-reported. She apparently only suggested certain preventive measures against match fixing and has not been accusing her own players. So maybe the Kings can rest easy for now but the match-fixing rumors will definitely leave a bitter after-taste all around.

Preity Zinta is one very strong babe and the actress proved it recently by kicking a man out of a theatre for disrespecting the national anthem! Apparently an excited Preity landed up at a local multiplex to catch a screening of Hrithik’s Bang Bang when a young man sitting nearby refused to stand up for the national anthem. While most people choose to simply ignore such things, Preity confronted the man and asked him to leave the theatre! Now there’s a daring act not even Hrihtik could have dreamed of! Writing about the incident Preity tweeted, “#bangbang be4 Bang Bang ! Had2 throw a guy out of the Theater as he refused 2stand up4 our National Anthem! Can u believe it?Now movie time.” Well we hope she at least enjoyed the movie in peace! Films Of India This isn't the first time something like this has happened. Just last year actor Puneet Issar's wife had hit a man for not standing up for the national anthem during a screening of Ship Of Theseus. Apparently, the poor guy was busy cuddling with his girlfriend during the time which infuriated Deepali Issar. Preity has been busy touring the US for quite some time and she even managed to catch Narendra Modi’s speech at the Madison Square Gardens. A few people have since criticised her for not participating in Modi’s ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan’ to which she responded by reminding people of the fact that she and Shah Rukh had done a cleanliness drive way back in the 2005 and she is still doing her bit to keep the city clean. Well one thing’s for sure, nobody can blame Preity for not being a conscientious citizen!
