Actress Preity Zinta has hit out at suggestions that that she had filed the FIR against her former boyfriend Ness Wadia for publicity.
Zinta wrote on Facebook, "I appreciate all the people who stand by me and support me but I must confess I am genuinely surprised and shocked at some reactions from people in general. Police investigation is on so I would humbly request people to have a little patience and wait for all the facts to come out."
She also lashed out at reports of money being the factor behind the complaint, "IPL was my project from the start and for the record not only did I pay for myself (5 crores) when I got into the IPL (bid) I paid for Ness too! 5 crores! (Proof of my financial commitment in the IPL is with the BCCI). To be fair to him he did pay me back a couple of months later (without any premium) so hope the money theory is put to end once and for all."

Preity Zinta had accused Wadia of abusing her at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium on May 30th during the IPL match between Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings. Wadia, however, described the allegations against him as totally false and baseless, and said that it was impossible for him to assault Preity Zinta, as she is always surrounded by bodyguards.
