On her chat show Up Close & Personal with PZ, Preity Zinta made attempts to pull Yuvraj's legs by saying, “But you are a big flirt and that"s why you get linked up with everyone!" Yuvraj answered back, “You were dating someone at that time and I was made the scapegoat in the whole thing. All this only because I was single. You were also linked to Bret Lee earlier, weren"t you?"
Emotional Yuvi also claimed that he won't marry any chick who comes on the way since he has been victimised by his parents' divorce. “I don"t want anyone to marry me for the fact that I play for India or due to my popularity", says Yuvraj. He also describes his dream girl, who has to be understanding enough since he would be traveling most of the time due to games.
Though rumours of actress Preity Zinta dating cricketer Yuvraj Singh is still a question mark, but it has somehow affected the handsome cricketer in a show where Preity Zinta, being the chat show host openly called him a 'Big Flirt'. The rumours of the affair gained its pace when pictures of Preity hugging Yuvraj post in almost all of the 20-20 cricket matches hit the headlines in 2009. But, Preity rubbished all such scandals.
