Inside Edge, the cricket drama series produced by Farhan Akhtar hasn't been well received by Preity Zinta. The fact that Richa Chadda plays an actress owning a cricket team in the series, and playing a seductress as well, has irked Preity. In our EXCLUSIVE chat with Zinta, she went all out as she ranted over how Richa's character has been linked to her and why it's wrong. It reminds us of the launch event when Richa had clarified that her character is not inspired by the actress but can you stop people from believing it? In fact, in an interview with India.com, Chadda even mentioned that, of all people, Preity would like the show!
She quoted, "Not at all. The only thing we have in common is I am an actor and I have a team and in reality, even she is an actor and has a team, that’s it. That’s the only thing we have in common. Once you people will see the show, will know the difference. I am sure she will like the show also." This interview took place in June. But looks like Preity is certainly not happy with the show.

In our interview that took place on July 10, Preity said, "Yeah, but do you think anyone has the real BALLS to show a ‘business’ woman do it? Or show a male actor in it? That’s being a man, no? Be a man, don’t ride off a woman, be a man, show me what a real man is…that’s not a real man. Real men don’t live off women, they don’t. So yeah, it upsets me, when I think about it, that they are doing this. But what can I do? The media itself helps them and says, ‘Oh, it reminds them of this…’ I mean, I am grateful that today Farhan made a statement and said, ‘Oh, it’s fiction,’ but then, why is fiction so one dimensional? Why do they have to show the woman as that? So that really upsets me, but what do you do? I don’t want to say much because when my BOOK comes out…honestly, I wish, if genuinely the idea was to make something, then I wish…, like I am actress, right? If I play any role, I research it. Filmmakers research it. It’s made by my friends, they could’ve called me and asked me for some inputs. But, it’s okay people want to make some weird fantasy of theirs…it’s fine." We wonder what Richa has to say now that Preity is mighty upset with her character in Inside Edge.
