With the rise of #MeToo Movement in Bollywood, new names have been popping up every now and then. From Priyanka Chopra, Aamir Khan to Karan Johar, many celebrities have spoken in support of it and have even taken the required actions against the ones accused. Another celebrity who joined the brigade is Preity Zinta who came out in support of the much talked about movement in a recent interview. However, she later revealed that her statements were edited and taken out of context.
In a series of Tweet, Bollywood diva Preity Zinta lashed out on a journalist who misrepresented the actress’ statement on the Me Too Movement. She said that her interview was edited to make it controversial. The actress tweeted, "I’m really surprised & upset that journalists like @iFaridoon take an interview & edit it to sound controversial for better traction. If I said “I wish someone had bothered me” - it meant I would have probably beaten them up if they had... Interviews taken out of context #Metoo."
Here are her tweets-
Really sad 2see how the interview Is edited to trivialis& be insensitive. Not everything is traction & as someone being interviewed I expected decency & maturity froma journalist @iFaridoon. I did 25 interviews that day & only yours turned out edited like this #dissappointed— Preity G Zinta (@realpreityzinta) November 19, 2018

On the other hand, talking about the movement, Preity Zinta had said, "I think It's important that this whole Me Too Movement has started but it is also important that women use it for the right thing because there are men and women who would use the position of their power for their advantage. There are small percentage of women that are using it, and they’re diluting the movement but there are also women who have gone through all these and we have heard so many stories in the industry."
On the work front, Bollywood actress Preity Zinta was last seen in Bollywood movie Welcome To New York. Now she will be seen in the upcoming film Bhaiaji Superhit which will hit the theaters on 23rd November.
