The actress has expressed her shock at the irresponsible reporting on part of the publication and put out her side of the story
Preity Zinta can just not catch a break! The actress has found her self embroiled in yet another controversy. Since morning, reports have been doing the rounds that Preity, who co-owns the IPL team, Kings XI Punjab, has admitted that it is possible that her team is involved in suspicious activities linked to match fixing and that the Indian board’s anti-corruption team has not been able to handle the problem. However, Preity Zinta has rubbished these reports and slammed the publication for having misconstrued her statements to create a malicious piece.
The Nach Baliye 7 judge took to Twitter to express her shock. She tweeted, "Shocked by this inaccurate & extremely irresponsible & malicious piece by @IndianExpress #stunned #2shocked2react." She also added, "Stop spreading rubbish without verification."
The actress then went on to explain what really happened through a series of tweets. She tweeted, "I suggested RANDOM POLYGRAPH ( LIE DETECTOR) Tests to Bcci for players so no can even think about match fixing. The theory was that ... 1/1. The theory being that "Prevention is better than cure." Of course @IndianExpress @abpnewshindi @abpnewstv had 2 twist & change the story...1/2. A constructive conversation to genuinely make a difference to the game is turned into a destructive article for sensational purpose. 1/3."
That's not where she stopped. Preity even put out a post on her Facebook account to clarify that that she supports her team whole heartedly and requested the media to act responsibly. Here's the post she shared...
