Fans have stood by us: Preity Zinta



Actor Preity Zinta, who co-owns the T20 team Kings XI Punjab, is thankful to her fans for their unconditional support even when the team was going through a rough phase last season.

“Going home to the Mohali ground is wonderful, and not for any other reason but for the fact that the crowd has stood by us even during our worst phase. There was a time when the team wasn’t doing well and even I didn’t have the inspiration to go and watch the game. But all the fans came. I love the Kings XI fans and hope we can win the cup for them,” said Preity, who was recently in the Capital for the Young Women Achievers Awards, organised by the Young FICCI Ladies Organisation.

When asked about her favourite city, the 38-year-old shared, “I have grown up in Delhi in a way and love the city, but Mumbai is my favourite. Delhi is clean, beautiful and the people are fabulous, but I do get a little nervous being all on my own here. In Mumbai, I can walk around alone but here I get scared. Having said that, there’s no place like Delhi.”

Preity also said that she’ll start shooting for her next film, Bhaiyyaji Superhitt, in July. As of now, she is busy with the T20 tournament and promoting her film, Ishkq in Paris. “I’ll take a month-long break after Ishkq in Paris and the T20 tournament. Then I’ll start shooting for Bhaiyyaji Superhitt in July,” she said.
