Why is Preity Zinta contesting elections against Sanjay Dutt’s sister Priya Dutt?

The Salaam Namaste actor had never professed having political ambitions but seems like she is now ready for it…

Preity Zinta seems to be doing anything that comes her way these days. After her acting career sank, she started harbouring hopes of making it big with an IPL team, which unfortunately never happened. Grapevine now has it that the Ishkq In Paris actor would be contesting elections against Sanjay Dutt’s sister Priya Dutt.

Our khabroos informed that the Kal Ho Naa Ho actor has been given a BJP ticket to contest elections and take forward her political ambitions. It has been heard that the party’s general secretary Rajiv Pratap Rudy, who is a distant relative of Preity, was keen to pit some celebrity against Priya Dutt from the North-Central Mumbai constituency. So that’s who she is trying to help out.

Is Preity Zinta really not dating anyone?

Although there was no official confirmation from Preity’s side we think it would be silly to contest against such a well reputed name in the constituency. But what to do, when family and relatives call for help, people generally tend to help. After all in times of distress relatives hi kaam aate hai. Hai na peeps?
