The actress-entrepreneur, who was headed to Mohali for Kings XI Punjab’s match, was told she couldn’t board the flight owned by her former boyfriend, Ness Wadia
On April 1 Preity Zinta got the shock of her life when she reached Mumbai airport to board a flight to Delhi for Kings XI Punjab’s IPL match in Mohali.
However, when she reached the GoAir check-in counter at Mumbai airport she was told she couldn’t board the flight.
Apparently, GoAir which is owned by Preity’s former boyfriend, Ness Wadia, has put a blanket-ban on Preity’s travel via any GoAir flight.
A source close to Preity narrates the harrowing incident. “Preity had barely slept the night before as she was attending a fashion event in Mumbai. She rushed to the airport to catch a Jet Airways flight to Delhi which was cancelled. So she booked herself a GoAir flight. Little did she know what shock awaited her. She was told she could not board.”
Not one to take such arbitrary rejection lying down Preity apparently created a huge ruckus at the GoAir counter.
A close friend of Preity reveals, “She refused to budge from the counter until her boarding pass was issued. One of GoAir’s ground-staff nervously confided in Preity that they had a standing instruction to not allow Preity to board any GoAir flight.”
The animosity between Zinta and Wadia goes back to 2014 when Preity had filed a case against him for allegedly abusing her at the Wankhede stadium.
The case was on until recently when Preity dropped legal proceedings against Wadia. According to a close friend of the actress-entrepreneur, “It is being said that she dropped her case against Ness Wadia voluntarily. But she did it only because Ness’ father called her and requested her to drop the case. She did it out of respect for the senior Wadia. And this is how Wadia repays her.”
Adds the friend, “The GoAir staff did everything possible to stop her from boarding the flight even after issuing her a boarding pass. Priety was having breakfast with Dia Mirza in the airport lounge when the staff came to announce the final boarding call.”
This has upset Preity to an extend that she might never take the same flying services.
The friend goes on to tell what happened next, “While Dia got up to leave with her breakfast unfinished Preity was told to take her time. Preity would never travel by GoAir if given a choice. This time her flight got cancelled and she had to reach Mohali for her own match. But to be prevented from boarding a flight just because the scion of the Wadia group wants it that way, is pretty much a low-blow to Preity.”
