The Preity Zinta controversy and Bollywood

The bubbly girl Preity Zinta seems to be making headlines since her molestation case surfaced against Ness Wadia, the man who happens to be his former boyfriend and the co-owner of the Kings XI Punjab at IPL. There is lot of hue and cry being heard and noticed in the media with every single and trivial things are being reported about the controversy. In other words, it has become a central issue of media to debate, discuss and even report the trivial and smaller things related to the case. Ironically, Bollywood, which is the place wherein she dwells the most has been silent on this issue. You hardly see any celebrity from Bollywood coming forth and talking or supporting Preity Zinta. Though something was heard and said about Salman and CineTalkers also reported something on it, yet he has not come openly to support her old time friend Preity. With Bollywood keeping away from this controversy, it’s high time to seek the answer why and what the Bollywood stars have to say about this issue.

Let’s start with Salman Khan, he has worked with Preity in a number of movies including Chori Chori Chupe, Jaan E Mann and gave special appearance in Ishqk in Paris. Checking her terms with the lady in trouble, he happens to be his best friend. However, this take was not really very much unusual and open. He simply denied saying or commenting on this issue and was rather annoyed discussing on it.

Next is SRK, unlike Salman he has also worked with movies like Dil Se, Veer Zara, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and Kal Ho Naa Ho. However, when he was asked about to comment on this issue, he simply called it a personal one and as she has brought forth this complaint and the legal department is competent enough to handle it. He further said he would talk to her.

The mega star Amitabh Bachchan has similar views when he was asked to comment on his fictional promotion show called Yudh at BSE event, he simply said the matter is in the court and let’s allow law to take its own course. He further said, he it won’t be fair to comment on the same till the court’s decision comes in.

Aamir Khan has even worked with the lady in the movie called Dil Chahta Hai, which makes her social acquaintances. His take on this issue was seen on Twitter when he was there at the microblogging site in the form of a silence. In fact, he was too busy talking about Imran’s daughter but remained silent on the issue.

As far as Jr. Bachchan is concerned, he seemed to have worked with Preity with Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, however, he remained very much far on this issue by completely ignoring the issue. Unlike his father, he didn’t even react on Twitter, when people posed him about this controversy.

As far s the other celebrities of B town is concerned, everyone seems to have maintained their distance on this issue. These include Rani Mukherji, Aishwarya Rai, while when Vidya Balan was asked about the issue, she plainly denied commenting on it as she is unaware of the context so commenting on it becomes difficult for the Dirty Picture heroine. However, if you look at Preity’s life, she has been always at the forerunner’s seat voicing about similar things. Perhaps this is the reason why she wants to pack her bags and shift to US when the issue settles down. At the moment she is alone fighting courageously with no one to support. With every passing days and moments you see a new twist and turn coming into this controversy; the big question is whether Bollywood would come out in her support would continue to remain a mute spectator? Let’s wait and watch!
