Angry Preity Zinta RUBBISHES Reports of a Fight with Her Team Coach!
According to a popular tabloid, she blasted the coach in front of the team and even hurled abuses at him including the four letter F word. While both Preity and Sanjay have denied the news in the story, the tabloid has printed the article. Irked by this, the actress has posted a statement on her Facebook page, lashing the journalist and the media publication.
Here’s what her statement reads:
A perfect example of How Journalists LIE BLATANTLY & should be sued for DEFAMATION ! For the record I do have manners & I did go to school so Mr. Vijay Tagore either apologize or bring forward ur so called Source as you are guilty of slander. I most definitely DID NOT be disrespectful to our coach nor abuse any one & definitely did not use the FOUR LETTER WORD.
Your story reeks of SEXISM and is incorrect & exaggerated beyond words I did speak to Veeru & Sanjay for exactly 20 seconds and asked why Axe did not bat after which I congratulated Virat Kohli & spoke to him briefly as he walked up to me. After which I proceeded to have a chat with Shane Watson& then left the ground with my husband & In Laws as we were in one car & I was disappointed. My mother & Brother stayed back as she was to go to the presentation ceremony & they were traveling in another car. I will not deny that I was disappointed but how dare any journalist cook up a story with me as a Villain. Just because I do not Support “PAID MEDIA or MEDIA NET” does not mean I am a soft target.Sanjay & I BOTH have DENIED this story STILL it gets Printed.
I am fed up of this nonsense & negativity. Just because our judicial system is slow some Indian Journalists time and again use it to write ANY & EVERYTHING & make soft targets of celebrities. Mumbai Mirror has been in the forefront of writing stories which are factually incorrect time & again & it’s getting both alarming & disgusting. Also I’m amazed at the chauvinist & sexist undertone to your article. Just because I am a woman you presume me to be a bimbo & know nothing about Cricket even though I have been working in this sport and business for the past 9 years.
