There has been a lot of talk about Preity Zinta getting engaged to boyfriend Gene Goodenough, but the actress remained mum about it for the most part. However, rumours started getting stronger, and recently a source even revealed to DNA what her wedding functions would look like. And now, we’ve got official confirmation from her spokespeople – yes, the actress is indeed tying the knot!
Now, we’re hearing something even nicer. Preity – who is known to be rather private about her personal life – is channeling all the anticipation around her wedding into a charitable cause. She’s often been one to take a stand on issues that are close to her heart, and now she’s kicking off the Preity Zinta Foundation to further give back to society.
Here’s what we’re told:
The power couple have decided to direct all the hype and anticipation surrounding their wedding into a charitable cause. They will be putting their private wedding images up for auction and the proceeds generated out of these will go towards the Preity Zinta Foundation. Preity’s foundation works towards educating children and old age home rehabilitation. Preity has been involved in several charitable initiatives but has never spoken about it since she is an extremely private person. However, both she and Gene wanted to celebrate this joyous moment in their lives by giving back to society in their own little way.
This is perfect! And it shows that Preity really does stand by what she believes in – early on, when talks of her wedding first started doing the rounds, Preity had posted this tweet:
