Priety Zinta Upset By Tusshar’s Toxic Comment
An offhand remark made by Tusshar Kapoor on the latest episode of Karan Johar’s talk show Koffee with Karan has Priety Zinta feeling toxic. Tusshar made an unkind insinuation about Preity when the host asked the actor “who comes to mind when I say the following things …?” When Karan said “Botox,” Tusshar blurted out “Preity,” which apparently enraged the Solider actress.
According to the reports, Priety Zinta phoned Tusshar and berated him about the flippant comment. She has also demanded the comment is edited out of the show.
A source close to Preity Zinta stated, “Preity doesn`t talk trash about anyone, and she sees no reason why Tusshar would slander her without provocation. They haven’t even worked together.”
When asked about the situation, Tusshar stated, “Preity called me. She was upset, and I explained my position. Everyone knows Karan`s round of rapid fire questioning is just for laughs. You don`t even have the time to think when Karan puts you on the spot. I had recently seen Preity`s picture in a magazine, and she looked stunning after losing a lot of weight. Her name just slipped out at the spur of the moment. There was nothing more to it.”
Tusshar added, “I’ve loved Preity since Soldier, and I didn’t mean to hurt her. I’m saddened my comment resulted in this ugly controversy. I’m glad we spoke and sorted it out before the situation snowballed into something worse. I’m really not even sure what Botox is, or why I would say anything about someone I respect as an artist.”
It seems Tusshar has learned a valuable lesson about toxic comments. Hopefully, he’ll be more discreet before frowns of disapproval crease some of Bollywood’s finest faces.
