Actor Preity Zinta on Thursday ruled out selling her stake in IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab.

Zinta had registered a molestation complaint last week against former boyfriend and industrialist Ness Wadia – who also co-owns KXIP -- alleging he had molested and abused her on May 30 during an IPL match at Wankhede stadium.

The Bombay Dyeing group scion has rejected her charges as “false and baseless”.

"A big Thank U 2all the people 4the support. Amazed at how much speculation in the media. No I'm not selling my stake or settling in the US," she posted on her Twitter account.



"SO called sources says anything & its getting reported. Pls No hearsay. There are many IMP Issues in India which are much more news worthy," she added.

Kings XI Punjab had lost to Kolkata Knight Riders in the final of the recent IPL competition.

The Preity-Ness controversy got murkier on Wednesday as the Wadia Group claimed it had received threats from an underworld don warning ‘harm’ to its business interests if actor Preity Zinta was harassed.
