Salman Khan is misunderstood, says Preity

According to Preity Zinta , Salman Khan is misrepresented by the media as a reckless brat.

Having worked with Salman Khan in a number of films, Preity knows him better than perhaps any other actress does in Bollywood. Shirish Kunder’s directorial debut Jaaneman brings the two stars together once again.

When the movie was on floors, its shooting was held up a couple of times because of some controversies surrounding Salman. One such scandal was when an audio cassette alleging Salman threatening Aishwarya Rai on phone surfaced. Although the forensic labs later gave Salman a clean chit, some damage to the actor’s reputation was done.

Preity says Salman is one of the nicest guys she knows in the industry.

“He (Salman) may not be media savvy, he may be involved in some unfortunate incidents, but Salman at heart is one of the nicest guys I know in the industry, and even outside it. He is constantly being misrepresented in the media and being made a target just because he happens to be a celebrity,” says Preity about her ‘Jaanemann’ co-star.

It is true that despite the controversies that he has been embroiled in, Salman has been regularly lending his support to various social and charitable causes.

Just a few days back he showed his solidarity to Preity while appearing with her for a special screening of ‘Jaanemann’ for little kids.
