Preity Zinta was not denied boarding GoAir flight, she did not show up: Airline

New Delhi: Reports of GoAir stopping Priety Zinta to board its flight were surfacing on social media on April 6. According to the reports, Preity was banned from flying by GoAir because the airline's owner Ness Wadia, Priety's ex-boyfriend, has issued such orders.

Now, the airline has issued a statement claiming that the reports were false and factually incorrect. It has also demanded apology from the sections of media for fabricating a story.

The statement read, "Sections of the media have reported malicious and factually incorrect story that is false, fabricated and without any basis stating that 'Preity Zinta was stopped from boarding GoAir flight.'"

The statement went on to say, "GoAir strongly and completely denies any such action. Contrary to the reportage, all the facts-on-ground clearly show that Ms Preity Zinta had a smooth flight Mumbai to Chandigarh GoAir G8-381 on Saturday March 30, 2019. Further, on April 2, 2019 she also booked herself on a return flight G8 382 from Chandigarh to Mumbai but did not show up. This clearly demonstrates that sections of media have reported mischievously and without verifying the facts with GoAir."
Preity, who is now married to Gene Goodenough, was previously in relationship with Ness. The two made their relationship public in 2005. In 2008, they took their relationship to another level and bought Kings XI Punjab team of Indian Premier League together.
