Preity Zinta Harassed – Lilly Singh, Hrithik, Other Stars Extend Support

MUMBAI, (IANS) – A slew of personalities including Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Lilly Singh, Hrithik Roshan and Malaika Arora, and many others have come out in support of actress Preity Zinta, who spoke about being harassed in a post on social media.

Preity has talked about how an unknown woman ‘planted a big wet kiss’ next to her daughter Gia’s mouth and how a ‘handicapped man kept trying to stop’ her for money in Mumbai while the paparazzi found it funny, laughed, and did not help.

Commenting on the post, actor Arjun Rampal said: “Next time give me a call will sort them out.”

Hrithik Roshan said: “Well done Pree.”

Malaika Arora wrote: “You said it out loud and clear.”

“Good on you for standing up for yourself. I know that can be hard. But it’s important and true,” wrote Lilly Singh.

Priyanka posted shocked emojis.

On April 8, Preity had shared a clip of a man in a wheelchair following and knocking on her car.

She captioned it: “Two events this week have left me a bit shaken. 1 regarding my daughter Gia-where a woman tried to take her photo. When we politely asked her not to, she walked away, then suddenly scooped my daughter in her arms & planted a big wet kiss next to her mouth & ran off saying what a cute baby. This woman lives in an elite building & happened to be in the garden where my kids were playing. If I wasn’t a celebrity, I probably would have reacted badly but kept my cool as I didn’t want to make a scene.”

“U can see the 2nd incident here. I had a plane to catch & this handicapped man kept trying to stop me. Over the years he has harassed me for money & I have given it to him when I could. This time when he asked for money, I said sorry today I have no cash, just a credit card. The lady with me gave him some money from her purse. He threw it back at her because it wasn’t enough & started getting aggressive. As u can see, he followed us for some time & got more aggressive.”

“The photographers found this incident funny. Instead of helping us they filmed & laughed. NO ONE told him not to follow the car or harass us as anyone could have got hurt. Had there been an accident, I would have been blamed. Me being a celebrity would have been questioned. Bollywood would have been blamed & a lot of negativities would have spread.”

“I think it’s high time people realized that I’m a human being first, then a mom & then a celebrity. I also don’t need to apologize for my success constantly & be bullied for it because I’ve worked very hard to get where I am,” she also said.

She added that she has an equal right like anyone else in this country to live the way she wants and urged everyone to think before judging and stop blaming celebrities for everything.

“Most importantly my children are NOT part of a package deal & are not meant to be preyed on so please leave my kids alone & don’t come to them for photos or touch/grab them. They are infants & need to be treated like infants, not celebrities,” added Preity.

  • Clearly paparazzi anywhere in the world are ruthless vultures just out to get a story regardless of who gets hurt or affected. Karma is a bitch and their day will come. Ms Zinta handled herself and the situation quite well so it seems. Shame on those who take advantage of anyone with a celebrity status.

  • Judgement can go both ways, could be Preity is going on a lean stretch without any projects and seeking some publicity. Sure, she might have seen unpleasant things happen to people, did she step out of her comfort zone to help those folks.

  • i don’t comment about someone personal life. If she wanted to be private she should move with her looser husband (bachelor from clemson third rate school) to LA and I promise her no one will bother her just like madhuri dixit who moved with that high grade heart surgeon and no one cared and she was doing her own dishes so she moved to India to get some publicity. there is a famous poetry
    “Rahiman vo ner mer chuke jo kashu magat jai ,per unse pahle vo mare jo hote huei bhe nai”. Lady kissed her baby, what is the big deal. She should get over it. The handicapped man deserve mercy also. remember you are what you are because of these poor people. I have been in us
    over 50 ears and I hardly watch Indian Movies and rarely goes to their shows.
