Preity Zinta is a well-known Hindi film actress. Despite the fact that she has not been active in the film industry for nearly a decade, she still has many fans who are eager to catch even a glance of their beloved actress, or simply receive one photo with their favorite celebrity.

However, sometimes fans’ fixation with taking selfies with their favorite celebrities goes too far, and these followers wind up invading the personal space of these celebrities. Disturbing fan encounters have developed dramatically in Bollywood in recent years. Preity Zinta recently experienced a similarly terrible scenario.

In a lengthy Instagram message, the Kal Ho Naa Ho actress emphasized her worry for her children’s safety. The post also included a video of Preity sitting in her car, struggling to latch the door while someone kept saying “please.” In the video the actress can be seen calmly stating that she had a flight to catch, but a man in a wheelchair continued to plead for money. The man pounded on the door, shouted at them, and even followed the car as it attempted to leave the neighborhood.

In a long post she wrote: “2 events this week have left me a bit shaken.1 regarding my daughter Gia-where a woman tried to take her photo. When we politely asked her not to she walked away, then suddenly scooped my daughter in her arms & planted a big wet kiss next to her mouth & ran off saying what a cute baby. This woman lives in an elite building & happened to be in the garden where my kids were playing. If I wasn’t a celebrity I probably would have reacted badly but kept my cool as I didn’t want to make a scene.”

She further wrote: “U can see the 2nd incident here. I had a plane to catch & this disabled man kept trying to stop me. Over the years he has harassed me for money & I have given it to him when I could. This time when he asked for money I said sorry today I have no cash, just a credit card. The lady with me gave him some money from her purse. He threw it back at her cuz it wasn’t enough & started getting aggressive. As u can see he followed us for some time & got more aggressive.”

“The photographers found this incident funny. Instead of helping us they filmed & laughed. NO ONE told him not to follow the car or harass us as anyone could have gotten hurt. Had there been an accident, I would have been blamed. My being a celebrity would have been questioned. Bollywood would have been blamed & a lot of negativity would have spread,” Preity Zinta said.

The actress further continued: “I think it’s high time people realise that I’m a human being first, then a mom & then a celebrity. I also don’t need to apologize for my success constantly & be bullied for it cuz I’ve worked very hard to get where I am. I have an equal right like anyone else in this country to live the way I want so please think before you judge & please stop blaming celebrities for everything. There are always 2 sides to a story.”

“Most importantly my children are NOT part of a package deal & are not meant to be preyed on so please Leave my kids alone & don’t come to them for photos or touch/grab them. They are infants & need to be treated like infants, not celebrities,” the actress added.

At the end, the 48-year-actress concluded: “I sincerely hope that the photographers that ask us for photos, videos & sound bytes also have the grace, humanity & maturity to act & help in the future instead of filming & laughing cuz most of the time it’s not funny.”
