Preity upset over Suchitra dragging her name in break-up
By Subhash K. Jha, IANS
Suchitra Krishnamurthy's outburst against Preity Zinta, blaming her for the break-up with hubby Shekhar Kapur, has upset the spunky actress.
Both Preity and her friend Ness Wadia are wondering why Suchitra has been talking in this way.
Preity denies having anything to do with Kapur and has issued the filmmaker an ultimatum to clear her name.
Preity told IANS: "I don't know how I get involved in controversies. Where do I come into this? I've met Shekhar maybe five times in 10 years. He was supposed to make my launch film. But it never happened. But we've kept in touch and we've met up when he was in India.
"In fact, I was supposed to have been directed by Shekhar for producer Vishal Bharadwaj in a film called 'Mantra'. That was the last I met him."
Preity called up Kapur asking him to clear her name immediately. Kapur, who was in Mumbai last week to meet his daughter, was apparently very embarrassed and has promised her that he would clear the air.
"Otherwise Preity will take drastic action against those who are bad-mouthing her," said a close friend of the actress.
"Kapur treats Preity like a child. He has virtually seen her grow up. Surely there're more discreet ways for an angry wife to be noticed? How would Suchitra like it if her six-year-old daughter is questioned by her friends in school about her dad and Preity? Suchitra claims Preity called her up and said not to talk this way because she (Preity) is getting married. No such thing happened," added the friend.
