Priyanka Chopra, Hrithik Roshan, Malaika Arora, Arjun Rampal and several other stars from Bollywood have come out in support of actress Preity Zinta following her recent Instagram post alleging harassment during her visit to Mumbai.

"2 events this week have left me a bit shaken. 1 regarding my daughter Gia-where a woman tried to take her photo. When we politely asked her not to, she walked away, then suddenly scooped my daughter in her arms & planted a big wet kiss next to her mouth & ran off saying what a cute baby," the Kal Ho Naa Ho actress wrote alongside a paparazzi video.


The second incident shows a differently-abled man following Preity while she is in her car. "I had a plane to catch & this disabled man kept trying to stop me. Over the years he has harassed me for money & I have given it to him when I could. This time when he asked for money I said sorry today I have no cash, just a credit card. The lady with me gave him some money from her purse. He threw it back at her cuz it wasn’t enough & started getting aggressive," she wrote.

The long caption also included Preity's appeal to paparazzis and fans about her children. "I think it’s high time people realise that I’m a human being first, then a mom & then a celebrity. Most importantly my children are NOT part of a package deal," her note read.

Priyanka commented “🙌👏😮” on Preity’s post. Arjun Rampal asked Preity to call him the next time. “Next time give me a call will sort them out,” the Om Shanti Om actor commented.

Hrithik also extended his support for his Lakshya co-star. “❤️ Well done Pree,” Hrithik commented on the Instagram post. Malaika Arora wrote, “U said it out loud n clear 🙌.”

YouTube-star-turned-talk-show-host Lilly Singh commented, “Good on you for standing up for yourself ❤️ I know that can be hard. But it’s important and true.”

Preity visited India to support her IPL team Punjab Kings. The actress lives in Los Angeles, USA, with her husband Gene Goodenough and their children Gia and Jai.
