Well, Genelia recently revealed why she reacted the way she did in the video and told Arbaaz Khan on his chat show Pinch: "The actual story is that after a long time, I was attending an award function.

So Preity and Ritesh were having a conversation and unfortunately, the cameraman captured my reaction."
