Actor Preity Zinta’s decision to lodge a police complaint accusing her ex-boyfriend, industrialist Ness Wadia, of grabbing her hand and abusing her during a cricket match in Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on May 30, has been met with “no comments” from most celebs.

Some, who are willing to discuss the case, feel it’s better to wait for the legal process to take its course, while some others openly support Preity.

Neither Ness nor Preity come across as liars. Both are such lovely people. So it is just very unfortunate that it’s all turning out the way it is. Having said this, I feel it is for the court to pass a verdict, not us.

Tanuja Chandra


I imagine she must have thought a great deal about it and hasn’t done this on an impulse. Like all women in the country, she has every right to approach authorities if she feels her individual space has been violated. We must wait for the legal process to move forward and avoid playing judge and jury ourselves.

Swara Bhaskar


Although I’m really nobody to comment about Preity’s case, I do firmly believe that it’s always important to come out and speak against such incidents. It’s also true that it needs a lot of courage, especially if you are a celebrity, to take legal recourse.

Rajkumar Santoshi


I don’t know what the truth is, but I know Preity very well. She is very hard-working and sincere. She is very courageous, and outspoken. If Preity has made an allegation against Ness, then I’ll definitely stand by her in her decision. Just as it is wrong to commit a crime, it is equally wrong not to speak up. I appreciate her decision to file a complaint against the concerned person and I’m with her.

Neetu Chandra


As far as I know her, she is a no-nonsense person and leads her life with dignity. A breakup is never pleasant. Both the partners have to be very careful about preserving each other’s self-respect in public after the breakup, for the sake of what they shared in the past.
