Preity Zinta, who settled in Los Angeles after marriage, shuttles between India and Los Angeles throughout the year. She married Gene Goodenough in February 2016. Preity's last film was 2013's Ishkq In Paris and she is currently awaiting the release of Bhaiyyaji Superhitt with Sunny Deol.
Shah Rukh Khan, with whom Preity Zinta has co-starred in films like Dil Se, Veer-Zaara and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, co-owns another IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, along with actress Juhi Chawla. During the IPL 2018 auctions, Preity had shared a picture with Juhi's daughter Jahnavi Mehta, who gave the actress 'a run for her money.'
Meanwhile, actor Ranveer Singh, who was supposed to perform at the opening ceremony of IPL, had to back out due to his shoulder injury. Ranveer got injured during a football match and has been advised not to perform. "After multiple medical check-ups, the doctors have strongly advised Ranveer Singh not to perform at this year's IPL opening ceremony in which he was doing the grand finale act. They feel his high-energy performance would only overstrain his shoulder and aggravate the injury," Ranveer's spokesperson said in a statement, news agency IANS reported.
