MUMBAI: Preity Zinta doesn’t know whether to be amused or annoyed by recent reports suggesting that she is moving out of her apartment in Khar (Mumbai) and renting it out to be able to pay off her debts.
Laughing heartily, the entrepreneur-actress laughs, “There is so much drama in that story. Bechari Preity. She has to vacate her mahal and live in a jhopdi because the cruel creditors are breaking down her door. I wish people would look for their afternoon soap opera scripts somewhere else. There is no such drama happening in my life.”
Completely rubbishing the reports suggesting she is to “lease out” her flat to pay her debts Preity says “Where did this come from? I am amazed at how off the mark this report is. It is a thousand percent untrue. By the grace of God, I’m most comfortably able to look after myself financially.It is not only untrue it’s extremely irritating to read such fabrications about oneself.”
To her embarrassment Preity’s friends from the film industry have been making discreet inquiries about her financial status.
“I am not going bankrupt, guys. If anything I see a bankruptcy of another kind in desperate news like reports like these,” laughs Preity.
