MUMBAI: Before she tied the knot with Gene Goodenough, our dimpled Bollywood beauty Preity Zinta dated quite a few men before she found someone who was good enough to be her husband.
Here are five love affairs of Preity Zinta who made her Bollywood debut in the film Dil Se (1998) for which she won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.
1: Model Marc Robinson: Preity’s first relationship in Bollywood was with model Marc Robinson. The two had a two-year live-in relationship before they broke off.
2: Ness Wadia: Preity Zinta had a romance with Ness Wadia from 2004 to 2009. There were always rumours of their engagement and then break-up. The two lovers also became business partners in 2007 when they bought the IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab. Then came their acrimonious split in 2009. Later, Preity filed an FIR against Ness Wadia alleging that he touched her inappropriately in public and abused her during an IPL match between King’s XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings.
3: Yuvraj Singh: Preity was also linked to cricketer Yuvraj Singh in 2008 when he was the captain of Preity’s team King’s XI Punjab and her relationship with Ness Wadia was going downhill.
4: Shekhar Kapoor: When filmmaker Shekhar Kapoor’s wife Suchitra Krishnamoorthy ended her marriage, she alleged that she was walking out of her marriage because of her husband’s brewing affair with Preity. But Preity rubbished the allegations.
5: Lars Kjeldsen: The rumours of Preity’s affair with this engineer from Denmark were confirmed when their intimate pictures in Hawaii were believed to be the ground of this relationship.
