The chirpy, bubbly, Preity Zinta has been one of the most recognizable faces in the world of Bollywood and Hindi cinema for a good part of the 2000s.
The dazzling diva has been around for a long while, and despite several rumors of marriage, and a relationship gone bad, she is all set to tie the knot, this time with US based fiancé Gene Goodenough.
Known for her roles in Dil Se, ChoriChoriChupkeChupke, KyaKehna, Mission Kashmir and Sangharsh, Preity has not been an active part of Bollywood for quite a while now.
She was an active part of the Indian Cricketing circles as she owned the Punjab based team, Kings XI Punjab. Preity Zinta was back then, associated with Ness Wadia.
The two dated from 2005 to 2009, but things started to go sour from thereon, and in 2014, Preity officially ended things as she filed a police complaint against Ness Wadia over attacking her at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Later in 2014, Preity had declared that she was ‘dating someone nice’, when she talked to the Mumbai Mirror, stating, “Yes, I’m in a relationship with someone nice. Finally, I have time for myself as the cricket doesn’t need me physically.”
According to a new DNA report, it has come to light that Preity has been dating Gene Goodenough, and that they will be marrying sometime in April in a church ceremony in the US, followed by a Rajput styled celebration in Mumbai.
The DNA report states “Preity and Gene are both extremely private people and will get married sometime in April this year. The church wedding will be a private affair, with Preity and Gene’s close friends and family, flying down to LA for the ceremony.
It will be a select group of people who will fly down for the LA wedding which will be tastefully done up keeping Preity’s personal tastes in mind.
It will be followed by a big fat Rajput wedding (consisting of a three-day affair and having wedding, sangeet and mehndi) in Mumbai with the who’s who of the film industry in attendance.”
In an interesting note, sources have now claimed that the wedding, which is a private affair, will not be attended by many names.
The photos of the event are expected to be sold off at a high price, and the full amount obtained from these photographs would be donated to a charity.
