Preity Zinta is right now in New Zealand to watch the one-day series between India and New Zealand. But in the meanwhile, she was invited by their Prime Minister John Key for an evening reception.

Preity adds that she was extremely concerned for the Sri Lankan team when they were attacked in Pakistan. I have been in touch with the boys from my team, Kumar Sangakkara and Jayawardene, and they are fine. My prayers are with those boys," she adds.
This is Preity Zinta's quotes on attack on Sri Lankan Cricketers in Pakistan. “It"s a sad day for cricket and any sports in general. I am deeply shocked at what has happened and I strongly condemn these attacks. My sympathies are with the team and I hope they emerge out of this stage."
Certain New Zealand cricketer"s have expressed concern over safety concerns about IPL. Sources close to her say that, “Preity explained and convinced Mr. Key about how safe India was and how capable the Indian forces are providing security."
