Mumbai, Apr 9: On April 3, Mumbai Mirror had broken the story on how Priety and Ness’s relationship was going through a rough patch and that the two were only together as business partners in their IPL team, Kings XI Punjab.
But Preity is far from being heartbroken and instead has a new man in her life. She is now seeing New York-based businessman and hotelier Vikram Chatwal, who has been known to date some of the hottest international models.
That the Vikram-Priya Sachdev marriage is also on the brink of a breakdown is well-known. “Meanwhile, Preity and Vikram have become quite close and the two get along like a house on fire,” said a source.
Preity’s close relationship with Vikram was especially obvious during the Mai Mumbai show at the Lakme Fashion Week organized by Vikram Chatwal.
An eyewitness said, “When Vikram walked the ramp, it was Preity who was cheering most loudly for him. From the look of it, it was apparent that Vikram and Priety enjoy being together. At a party held later during the day, Priety was with Vikram throughout the evening.”
Priety, who was always accompanied by Ness when they were in a relationship, raised quite a few eyebrows by arriving at the event all alone. “People were surprised when Priety came without Ness. But her close friendship with Vikram became obvious when they hung around together during the fashion week” said our source.
Our source added, “Vikram too is enjoying his single status as his wife Priya spends most of her time at her parents’ house at New Delhi. In fact, in an interview to a magazine Vikram had clearly stated how he longs to enjoy his freedom once again. Looks like Preity and Vikram have found comfort in each other’s company.”
We tried contacting Preity Zinta but she remained unavailable for comment.
