NDTV reported "I don't know how it happened," Preity said. "But in the melee at the launch (Monday), an elbow came and hit me straight in the eye. I had to go through the event with a black eye wearing dark glasses." After the event, the actress spent the evening nursing her eye with ice packs. "It will swell a bit. I guess it's bound to happen when one is in such situations," she said.
The close viewer explained that somebody might be through something at Priety Zinta. One of her bodyguard tried to catch the thrown elements. At that time his elbow hit to Zinta’s eye.
