Now that IPL is on and Preity Zinta is back in the news, I discovered from very reliable sources that Ms. Zinta checked-in for a rehab program in the US. Now that explains what the lady was doing in US. In 2005 I did an undercover piece on Cocaine abuse and dealt with a top notch dealer who catered to Bollywood and he took various names and Preity Zinta was also in his client list. In fact I didn’t believe it till I saw a picture of Preity doing a line of cocaine saved in the dealer’s mobile phone.
Somehow IPL and Coke (not the Cola) has a strange relationship. Right from its Chairman to its many team-owners are known to be regular users of Charlie. Hope the cricketers don’t get influenced and hope soon Dope testing becomes mandatory for Indian Cricketers.
