Preity Zinta’s ‘Insensitive’ Remark On #MeToo Movement Gets Her In Trouble

Preity Zinta is trying to do damage control, but guess what – in Bollywood, any controversy is good controversy in the eye of the #MeToo storm. The actress, in an interview to a digital entertainment site, said that she had not experienced any harassment personally. But, it’s what she said after, that has shocked many.

“No, I haven’t, I wish I had (laughs). At least then, I would have had an answer to tell you. No, and that’s what I am saying, that this is a very relevant question because people treat you the way you want to be treated.”

As social media backlash followed, the actress said she is upset that her recent comments have been misconstrued.

Preity, known to be fearless, was the first one to take on the underworld in 2003, admitting she had been threatened  with extortion. This, even as many of her male co-stars had chosen to be quiet. A few years later, she had complained about being harassed by former boyfriend, Ness Wadia.

The actress is currently in India for the promotion of her film Bhaiyaji Superstar.
