Preity chose 'Manners and etiquette in life and on social media' as a topic of discussion with her Twitter followers on Sunday.
Preity, who was earlier dating industrialist Ness Wadia, added that "a simple 'please' or 'thank you' went a long way in life".
The actress wrote on Twitter:
A simple PLEASE or THANK YOU can go a long way in life. The best looking guy with money & style without manners is actually a big turn offPreity zinta (@realpreityzinta) August 9, 2015
Manners don't belong 2the rich or 2the poor but2 the1 whose parents have spent time on his or her upbringing. Good Upbringing = Good MannersPreity zinta (@realpreityzinta) August 9, 2015
Preity, who crossed over to the small screen as a judge of dance reality TV show Nach Baliye this year, feels that 'kids are losing their etiquette and manners' because of the growing 'maid' culture' in India.
I think the biggest reason kids are losing their etiquette & manners is because of the growing " maid"culture in India. Maids are not very? Preity zinta (@realpreityzinta) August 9, 2015
Maids are not very educated in India & since parents don't have that much time the kids end up spending most of their time with the maids.Preity zinta (@realpreityzinta) August 9, 2015
Therefore a lot of the upbringing of kids ends up from the maid instead of the parents. They look, they see & they absorb. That's my theoryPreity zinta (@realpreityzinta) August 9, 2015
