It's sad news for actress Preity Zinta after good news. Just as she was beginning to celebrate after her IPL team Kings XI Punjab registered their first win in the ongoing IPL season, she has to appear before the court on April 2.
A civil suit has been filed against co-owners Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia and vice-president of Kings XI Punjab, Arvinder Singh in relation to an advertisement, which carried the names of freedom fighters Chandarshekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru. The complainants alleged that they used their names for publicity, which is a violation of The Emblem and Names (Prevention of Improper Use) Act, 1950. The act prohibits improper use of names or ideals that inspired the freedom struggle.
Advocate Arvind Thakur, one of the three complainants, said that they couldn't hand over the summons to them as they were travelling with their team. He added that they would hand it over to them when they come to Mohali today for the match between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals.
