Preity Zinta faces non-bailable arrest warrant for bounced cheque of 18 lakh
Mumbai: A Mumbai court today issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Bollywood actress Preity Zinta in connection with a bounced cheque of over 18 lakh rupees.

The case was filed by Abbas Tyrewala, dialogue writer of the movie 'Ishkq in Paris', released last year, after a cheque of Rs 18.9 lakh bounced.

Ms Zinta's lawyer Ratneshwar Jha told PTI, "We will move the court to cancel the warrant or we will move the Bombay High Court and file a writ."

He said the court issued the non-bailable arrest warrant despite him telling that the actress was out of the country.

The court had earlier imposed a fine of Rs 5000 on Ms Zinta for not appearing at the hearing.
