Vivacious and gorgeous Preity Zinta got married to her longtime American boyfriend Gene Goodenough in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles on February 28, 2016. The wedding was a traditional Hindu ceremony and the couple took pheras in her mom Nilprabha Zinta’s presence. The hush hush marriage was a low-key affair with only close family members and friends like Susanne Khan and Surily Goel being present at the venue. Apparently, Preity’s mom Nilprabha oversaw all the arrangements for the wedding.
For her D- day, Preity chose a picturesque outdoor location near Mulholland Drive in Beverly Hills. The mandap looked stunning and was set against a backdrop of gorgeous skyline of the city.
A popular LA-based artist, DJ Amara had shared a photo from the night with the caption,
However, the picture has been now deleted.
All her fans are dying to see the wedding images but it is believed that the couple will put out their private wedding images up for auction and the proceeds generated out of these will go to the NGO, Preity Zinta Foundation.
Preity will soon have a grand reception in Mumbai where the who’s who of Bollywood will be invited.
Preity had met Gene in Los Angeles a couple of years ago. Gene works with NLine Energy Inc., a renewable energy development company in LA, as the Senior Vice President in their Product & Finance department.
Goodenough was also a key witness in the infamous 2014 case, when Preity had slapped her ex-boyfriend Ness Wadia with molestation charges.
