Preity, star of films like Dil Se, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke and Mission Kashmir and Gene, a financial analyst, will reportedly host a Bollywood-style reception in Mumbai in April.
The actress was earlier believed to be in a relationship with industrialist Ness Wadia. Ness and Preity, co-owners of the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kings XI Punjab, are believed to have dated for five years between 2005 and 2009. In June 2014, the actress filed a police complaint accusing the Wadia Group scion of having attacked her at an IPL match in Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.
Preity made a comeback with the poorly-received Ishkq in Paris (2013) which she produced as well as starred in. She was last seen in 2014's Happy Ending.
