INTERVIEW: Salman Khan has stood by me like a rock: Preity Zinta
Salman Khan and Priety Zinta are friends. That's no secret. And he stands by his friends.

But while he is there hundred per cent for his friends in private, he won't talk about them in public.

Preity Zinta-Ness Wadia backstory:
In 2009, a tabloid news of Ness slapping Preity in a party was spread widely followed by much speculated news of their split which was not confirmed by either of them. Later, in an interview, Preity spoke about her breakup and said that she was still friends with Ness.
Recently, during a match on May 30, 2014 Preity and Ness fought for the front row seats of the match at the Garware Pavilion in Wankhede stadium where Preity was seated in the front row with David Miller's family. Ness entered the pavillion during the match, where Kings XI Punjab defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) with his family and insisted that the seats be given to him. This turned into an ugly argument and Preity and Ness lost their cool and exchanged insults on their way out of the stadium. Sources revealed that the dimpled lass even approached the IPL chairman but no official complaint was ever lodged.
On June 13, 2014 Preity filed a complaint against Ness accusing him of molestation, threats and abuse. She stated that since their split, they only spoke for professional reasons and during the heated arguments regarding the team, Ness got abusive and insulted Preity in front of her team members and colleagues. Preity further added that she was surprised that no one stood by her. She even mentioned that Ness threatened to make her disappear by using his powerful political connections. Read more
