Shooting Har Pal with Shiney Ahuja may not have been a smooth ride for Preity Zinta, thanks to the former’s continuing legal battle playing spoilsport, but the leading lady has now decided to promote their film together.
Confirming this, Shiney says: “We’re looking at May or June for release because before that, Preity is busy with the IPL (Indian Premier League),” adding, “As far as I’m concerned, there was never any problem with her. She’s a lovely person. When I was going through my legal stress, she had sent me a message of support. I’ve finished my dubbing for Har Pal and so has she. We will now work towards releasing the film. It’s an important film for both of us, and for director Jahnu Barua,” he added.
Shiney was arrested on June 15, 2009 after his maid accused him of rape. He was charged under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section 376 with rape, along with wrongful restraint and intimidation.
However, in April last year, the Bombay High Court granted bail to the actor. Shiney refuses to accept that the makers of his stalled films were playing the wait-and-watch game. “I don’t think my personal problems affect my work.”
