Preity claims she stopped Tyrewala's payment because he did not deliver the work for which he was hired. "Yes, we stopped his payment because we didn't owe him anything. Now he claims a cheque for work that he did not do has bounced."
On making inquiries Bollywood Hungama discovered that every one who worked on and in Ishkq in Paris has been paid. Preity said, "Yes, we've paid everyone. If we owed this guy (Tyrewala) we would have paid him too. I cannot and will not pay someone for work he has not done. He abused my trust and goodwill and took a cheque from me which was meant to be used only if he worked for us." Preity added that Tyrewala is guilty of breach of trust. "I did not register a case of a stolen cheque as I didn't want to embarrass him. But now the matter is in court and it's all on record. I won't be blackmailed just because I am a known face and name." Preity also said, "We have submitted our proof (of monetary claims) to the court. We will take appropriate action against him now that he has taken the matter to court and involved the media for publicity. I am not stupid to put myself at risk with a bounced cheque for a relatively meager sum of money."
