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.

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
