The industrialist is controversy's favourite child...
Ness Wadia is a huge industrialist and a big name in the economic lobby. His name became even more prominent in the media after he started dating Bollywood actress Preity Zinta in 2005. The two looked very cute together and co-own an IPL team Kings XI Punjab even today. However, two years back things turned sour and they broke up. Their names were splashed all across the media, but it wasn't the first time his name came up for his abusive nature and it seems it wasn't the last too.
Today again, he made headlines for abusing and assaulting his driver for not complying to his instructions. So we decided to do a recap of the times he made the news for his controversial side and here's what we could dig up:
Preity Zinta's team member Sreeshant got slapped by Harbhajan Singh and gave us the slap gate controversy (2013), Preity had a similar harrowing experience. According to India Today, at a party in 2009, Ness reportedly slapped Preity hard and many people surrounding them noticed it. While no one knew the reason behind this, they reported this to various dailies and the news spread like wild fire. However, the couple remained silent and continued to be together.
# Molestation controversy
After a huge fight in 2014 after an IPL match in Mumbai,
Preity filed a case against Ness Wadia. By this time the couple had split and were just co-owners. However, Ness had been threatening her with dire consequences for quite sometime.
