Mumbai: Even as rumours surfaced that Preity Zinta might sell her stakes in IPL team, Kings XI Punjab, and shift base to US, the actress clarified on Wednesday that there was no basis in the reports carried by the media.

The actress posted on micro-blogging site Twitter, “A big Thank U 2all the people 4the support. Amazed at how much speculation in the media. No I`m not selling my stake or settling in the US. (sic)”

Ness and Preity both own 23 percent shares in the IPL team.

Zinta had filed an FIR against former boyfriend and Kings XI co-owner, Ness Wadia on Thursday night. Preity in her complaint to the police on June 13 had alleged that Ness had publicly humiliated her during an IPL match at the Wankhede stadium in South Mumbai on May 30.

A four hour CCTV footage has been examined as a key evidence by the police. However no footage of the incident has reportedly come to light. The actress has been summoned for another statement by the police by June 19.

Meanwhile, the Bombay Dyeing heir has denied the charges.
