On 13 June 2014, Preity Zinta had filed a complaint against ex-boyfriend Ness Wadia for molesting and intimidating her during an IPL match. Ness Wadia’s statement is expected to be recorded within the next fortnight.

In 2008, Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia, who were dating at the time, bought the Kings XI Punjab IPL team together. However, in 2009, there were rumours that Wadia slapped Preity at party. The couple separated a few months later, but were never public about their breakup.

In her complaint, Zinta mentions that she knew Wadia for ten years and was in a relationship with him, but that the relationship had ended and that they were strictly business partners only.

On 30 May 2014, Wadia allegedly threatened her at Mumbai Wankhede Stadium during an IPL match, saying that she was a “nobody”, while he was a “powerful person.”

She said she waited for a while before lodging the complaint because her team had qualified for the finals and she did not want a spat between co-owners to impact team morale.
