She knows quite well how to slip in the word ‘momentum’ while talking about a match, and she sure knows more than a thing or two about backing her players. In 2008, it was clear that the Bollywood queen had put in an effort to learn the game and the vocabulary to fit in. It’s been a long seven years since, and Preity Zinta talks about her ups and downs with Kings XI Punjab, which she co-owns.
There were decent celebrations in the first few IPL seasons, while in 2010 there was hardly any as Punjab and Rajasthan were terminated by the BCCI for not having disclosed their shareholding pattern publicly. That meant a lot of running around in trying to get back to playing, which Preity and her team did pretty well.
“It becomes very difficult when you have to pay Rs 100 crore bank guarantees and it’s not just cricket playing on your mind,” Preity was quoted as saying to the TOI. “It was only in 2013 that things began to get normal for the franchise. The first two years of IPL was about understanding how to go about the whole thing, but in 2010 all the wrong kind of things started to happen and we were dealing with court cases. There were issues with the BCCI and it was a very difficult phase. When you get into these things, it’s not easy at all.”

Preity Zinta is a busy lady, juggling her T20 team and under-wraps entrepreneur ventures at the same time. So much so that the actor hasn’t had time to shoot for her next film, starring Sunny Deol and has currently put the project on hold. “We have shot 50 per cent of the film. But now Bhaiyyaji Superhitt will have to wait for a little bit because I am going to South Africa. They can’t shoot right now, and then I will have the T20 tournament,” says Preity.
The actor is concentrating more on her business and wants to wrap up her international commitments, related to the venture, before the cricket tournament begins. So, she is not sure when she can start shooting again. “We started it around October last year and a film takes at least a year to be complete. Not every film is made in three months,” she says.
Preity has certainly not retired from acting and is already in talks for her film projects. “I have two films and will sign them soon. I can’t reveal anything about those films, but you will come to know soon. They are big projects,” says Preity.

To start with, Preity, your twitter id says that you are ‘Actress, Producer, Writer, Entrepreneur, UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador and Cricket fan’. Is there anything else that is yet to be added to the list?
Yes. And it’s F-I-G-H-T-E-R! (Smiles)
It’s been quite some time that your fans and our readers heard about you, from you. Was the lying low and off- press intentional?
Yes, my lying low was intentional. Come to think of it, ever since the time I got into movies till date, I have never been a ‘media person’ or somebody who talks a lot to the media. But at a time when I was having 3- 4 releases a year, there were lot of interactions with the media. But once I got into cricket, and that too, only if there was something to talk about, I was talking (to the media), not otherwise. But, now I figured that if one is not available (to the media) for commenting/ quote for a small thing, then even the simplest of the things can snowball into a big story!
What’s keeping you busy on the professional front these days?
Besides the IPL, I have two films on which I am working on. Plus… I am also working an exciting new venture which is keeping me really busy these days. This is a very creative venture about which I will tell you all very shortly!
There were strong rumors floating around that you sold off a major chunk of KXIP’s (Kings XI Punjab) stake. Can you clarify this so that the rumors can be put to rest forever?
As you said, these rumors have always been rumors with no truth in them whatsoever! Let’s all understand the fact that whenever anybody does a sale (in IPL), they have to write a letter to the BCCI to approve the same. And then, 5% of the income has to be given to the BCCI, as a part of the sale. And once that happens, a new share holding pattern is created and new shareholders are formed. So, till the time the abovementioned things are not happening in the said fashion, these rumors will always be rumors! (Laughs). Also, if anything of that sort does happen, it will has in all transparency minus any shady deals.

The Miss Bollywood Pageant, the first of its kind in Houston scheduled to be held on Friday, March 7 at 7 pm at the Signature Manor.
The main judge and chief guest will be Bollywood super star, Preity Zinta. She hardly needs any introduction having starred in a number of successful Bollywood movies including Dil Se, Kal Ho Na Ho and Veer Zaara and also a Canadian film – Heaven on Earth. She is also the co-owner of the Indian Premier League Cricket Team Punjab Kings XI. A truly multifaceted personality representing exactly what our judges will be looking for in our “Miss Bollywood”.
