Preity Zinta getting married in January?


The wedding season is in for sure. After Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra’s wedding, followed by Yuvraj Singh’s engagement with Hazel Keech, it’s the turn of Bollywood actress and co-owner of IPL team Kings XI Punjab, Preity Zinta to get hitched.

Rumours are rife that the dimpled beauty is all set to tie the knot with her American boyfriend Gene Goodenough, early next year. Preity has been dating Gene for over a year now and is reportedly planning to get married to him in an intimate ceremony in presence of family and close friends, in the US.

According to a report in Bollywood Life, a source close to the actress has said that Preity is slated to fly to the US in January, 2016 to join her beau Gene. However, there has not been any official announcement from the actress in this regard.

Thirty-year-old Gene works as a financial analyst in Los Angeles. As per reports, Gene and Preity met during one of the actress’ trips to the States a few years ago.

Revealing about their secret affair, the reported quoted a source as saying, “He supports, encourages and understands her. Gene gave her company during this year’s IPL and she flew back with him to the US after the finals, as he had to return to work.”

Preity was earlier in a long relationship with businessman Ness Wadia and it was speculated they would settle down together. But the effervescent actress accused him of molesting her during an IPL match in Mumbai in 2014 and broke of their relationship of over four years.

However, the report also mentioned a source as saying, “Gene is not Preity’s boyfriend. He is a very good friend. Preity’s brother and little niece live in the US and she visits them regularly. She therefore has a lot of very good friends in America.”
