Actress Preity Zinta filed an FIR against business partner and ex boyfriend Ness Wadia, in Mumbai on Thursday. She charged him for molestation and assault among other charges.
The incident supposedly took place on May 30 during an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Wankhede stadium in South Mumbai. The match was between Chennai Super Kings and Kings X1 Punjab.
In another revelation, it has been learnt that at the time of the incident, Wadia was present with his family and friends at the V.I.P stand.
To justify her complaint, the actress has explained the details of the day the incident took place in her Facebook post ‘From my Heart’, just a day after she registered the case of molestation against Ness.
Preity insists that despite many people being present at the stand, no one came to her rescue when she was being humiliated and abused publicly.
People stood as mere spectators but no one came forward to take a stand for her. This left the 39-year-old actress with no choice and hence she had to come out in open with the truth and seek the help of the police.
In her blog, Preity wrote: “Everyone always looks away as if they don’t exist or we don’t exist. People are embarrassed just enough to look away, but not too embarrassed to intervene.”
Preity is apparently disillusioned with the way people have reacted. According to the actress, stories are being fabricated so she thought of penning down a blog to share the truth.
She mentions that she has nothing but truth to offer and is amazed by how people are quick at finding faults with her.
Both Ness, 44, and Preity, 39, are co-owners of the Punjab IPL team. The actor and the Bombay Dyeing heir were in a relationship for five years.
