When Ness Wadia was accused of molestation by Preity Zinta

<p>Preity Zinta, a Bollywood actress, had considerable success in her career until things began to go south. Alongside Bollywood’s Baadshah, Shah Rukh Khan had a dream start. She went on to feature in hit movies like Soldier, Kya Kehna, Farz, Veer Zaara, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, Sangharsh, and more. She received a lot of recognition for her early portrayal as an unmarried mother in Kya Kehna.</p>

<p>It has been noted that her distinct on-screen persona and roles, which were often considered culturally provocative, contributed to a change in the public’s image of Indian cinema heroines.</p>
<p>There have been some controversial issues in Preity Zinta’s professional and personal lives, however. The actress and business mogul, Ness Wadia, had a highly publicized romance that did not work out. When they acquired the Kings XI Punjab IPL franchise together in 2008, they partnered as business associates, and their working connection quickly became romantic.</p>
<p>Maureen Wadia, Ness’s mother, supposedly felt cold toward Preity. As long as her son was happy, Maureen gained notoriety for declaring that she didn’t care who he dated—whether it was “a Zinta or a zebra.” Following their quick breakup, it became publicly known that Ness had brutally mistreated Preity at a party. However, things didn’t stop there. Preity filed a molestation lawsuit against Ness in 2014.</p>
<p>Things are said to have taken a terrible turn at the Wankhede Stadium on May 30, 2014, during a Kings XI Punjab vs. Chennai Super Kings match. Ness was reportedly mistreating the team employees over ticket distribution when Preity was sitting at the Garware Pavilion. She said that he grabbed her arm and harassed her after she asked him to quit behaving erratically. She allegedly revealed “bruise-like” indications on her right arm in four of the photos she supplied the police.</p>
<p>After that, Preity changed seats, but her problems did not end there. Ness is accused of verbally abusing her here as well. He treated her badly on the ground in front of their teammates as well. After four years of the lawsuit being filed and maintained, Preity Zinta dropped her complaint in 2018, and the issue was settled.</p>
<p>When a rumored audio recording of Preity Zinta and her co-star Salman Khan from Chori Chori Chupke Chupke went viral, the actress found herself embroiled in yet another scandal. Salman allegedly told Aishwarya Rai on this purported audio tape the specifics of his close friendship with Preity. Preity was having romantic relations with Ness Wadia at that time. It became known later that the audio cassette was phony.</p>
<p>In 2018, Preity Zinta made her long-awaited return to the screen with the film Bhaiaji Superhit, starring opposite Sunny Deol. The movie did not fare well and got bad reviews.</p>
