Bollywood star Preity Zinta’s wedding to American beau Gene Goodenough, is planned to be held this month, there is some news that the couple will actually tie the knot in Los Angeles in spring (March-April) with only close friends and family flying down. Goodenough is a financial analyst and met Zinta during one of her U.S. trips.
According to media reports, the white wedding will, however, be followed by a proper and ostentatious Rajput wedding in Mumbai. This grand celebration will have the film industry in attendance, as Zinta has developed a lot of goodwill in the industry. The bubbly and forthright actress, who has always stood up for her convictions and principles, has barely been seen in the millennium’s second decade because of her other priorities.
She was last seen in her home production “Ishqk in Paris” in 2013, followed by a cameo in “Happy Ending.” Though closest to Salman Khan among the ruling stars, Zinta has worked with every A-lister and a lot of heroines, and is on great terms with all of them as well as top filmmakers.
Zinta is said to auction off her wedding pictures for charities that she supports, including for educating children and for old-age homes. Zinta and Goodenough want to help society even with this happy occasion in their lives. While this move is a first among Indian stars, Hollywood couples like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have reportedly done it before overseas.
