Mumbai  — Actress Preity Zinta’s allegation of molestation against her former beau and business partner Ness Wadia has not got much reaction from the film fraternity, but a few – like director Tanuja Chandra – feels it’s better to wait for the legal process to move forward and “avoid playing judge and jury ourselves,” while Moon Moon Sen feels “it is entirely their business.”

Chandra, who directed Preity in author-backed film Sangharsh, said: “I imagine she must have thought a great deal about it and hasn’t done this on an impulse. Like all women in the country she has every right to approach authorities if she feels her individual space has been violated. We must wait for the legal process to move forward and avoid playing judge and jury ourselves.”

The outspoken Pooja Bedi decided to sit on the fence.

She said: “Neither Ness nor Preity come across as a liar. Both are such lovely people. So it is just very unfortunate that it’s all turning out the way it is. Having said this I feel it is for the courts to pass a verdict, not us.”

Neetu Chandra feels the matter is personal. However, she also feels Preity is not the kind to raise a hue and cry unnecessarily.

“As far as I know her, she is a no-nonsense person and leads her life with dignity. A break-up is never pleasant. Both the partners have to be very careful about preserving each other’s self-respect in public after the break-up, for the sake of what they shared in the past.”

Preity lodged a written complaint against Wadia with police on Friday, last week. She accused Wadia of grabbing her hand and abusing her during a cricket match in Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai May 30.

Though she admires Preity’s spirit, actress-parliamentarian Moon Moon Sen feels the two should sit and talk it out.

“Maybe there’s a history of abuse and now it has erupted in a public place to embarrass both of them. Surely the two can sit down and sort it out. No matter how we look at it, it is entirely their business.”

Movie guru Shailendra Singh finds the incident unfortunate.

“It’s unfortunate that a girlfriend-boyfriend fight has national importance. There are far more serious matters awaiting the nation’s attention.”
