Mumbai, Feb 2(IANS) Bollywood actress Preity Zinta is upset over the hue and cry that was created on news channels after the Mumbai police played party pooper at her birthday bash.

'I had a party and the police came and put the music off. They also fined me and I paid it on the same night. I also have the receipt for the same. The music did not come up again as mentioned on some sensational channels,' the actress, who turned 34 Saturday, said in a press statement.

Slum-dwellers near Preity's flat in Quantum Park building in Bandra here had complained of loud music early Sunday morning and the police ordered her to turn down the volume of the loudspeakers.

Preity was penalised as per the provisions for flouting noise pollution rules. But she is miffed with media for sensationalising the incident.

'Journalism is about investigation and reporting the facts. Things like 'I broke the law and no action was taken' on me plus a rich versus poor story on TV channels is upsetting,' Preity said.

'There should be a law against sensational and false news being passed off on news channels as news. I am a law-abiding citizen so please check your facts before putting it on TV,' she added.

    good going

    well, atleast she responded to the media...the nex step would be to help the porr slum dwellers. but i guess expecting philantropy from a bollywood star is a bit of a far fetched dream right now

    Go PREITY!..I say hypocrisy should be cured
    Everyone..Just makes a mountain out of a molehill
    While the important issues..Are overlooked

    Why don''t the government..Use that money
    To finance the construction..Of new homes
    For slum dwellers?..Celebs are also people
    Everyone should respect..Each othr..Peace
