Preity Zinta lashes out at paparazzi for their impolite way of doing things, just like Katrina Kaif and former actress and parliamentarian Jaya Bhaduri Bachchan did on two earlier occasions.
Preity says she does not like the way photographers pounce on her to take pictures as it makes her uncomfortable.
The 41-year-old star slammed the increasing paparazzi culture in the country, saying these days no one politely asks for a photograph.
In a series of tweets the actress wrote, “I would like to tell everyone (specially the photographers with big flashes that lurk in the dark) a few things. Please don’t jump on us or push our parents or kids or friends and family for a photo. Ask politely or you will never get a proper photo!” She further said that photographers should not “make news” saying that stars misbehaved with them, because if their bodyguards push lensmen, they have a valid reason
“If a star’s security pushes you there is a GOODENOUGH Reason that you deserved it so stop making news about how badly behaved we are.
“Please. If I don’t want to be photographed I will hide my face. Not because I have had a bad surgery, or have no makeup or whatever. It just means NO. It’s my face, my life and my choice! If I’m dying to be photographed I will post it on twitter or Instagram so please be polite or okay bye.”
Preity was quick to take on body shamers, writing, “Next time you take my picture don’t look for body parts you can circle or put in a loop later on to body shame me & make money for you ?? You & Me – we both have to live here.
“If you are more considerate & decent you will probably get great images and leave the kids alone.I hope I could represent every actor & star in this dialogue with the other side. I am making a genuine attempt so things caN go smoothly,” she said.

On earlier occasions, actresses like Aishwarya Bachchan and Rani Kukherjee had desperately tried, sometimes unsuccessfully, to shield their children from the prying of the lensmen at pubic places. – CINEWS
