The Sangharsh filmmaker reacts to Preity-Ness’ molestation case
Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt Saturday called the souring of Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia’s “love story” into a “hate story”, “unfortunate” after the actor accused her former beau and industrialist of molestation.
“A Fairy tale love story turns into A HATE STORY! What an unfortunate end to the Preity Zinta Ness Wadia romance,” tweeted Bhatt, who co-wrote the Preity-starrer, 1999 film “Sangharsh”.
Preity lodged a written complaint against Wadia, the Bombay Dyeing scion, with the Marine Drive police station Thursday night. She is said to have accused him of grabbing her hand and abusing her during a cricket match in Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai May 30.
Wadia, who co-owns the the Kings XI Punjab IPL team with the actor, has denied the allegations, terming them “totally false and baseless”.
The duo had started dating in 2005, and their relationship came to an end in 2009.
