Preity Zinta makes a dramatic re-entry into the 2014 Forbes India Celebrity 100 (she was ranked 73 in 2012), given that she has neither had a release in our time period nor many acting assignments of late. But the co-owner of IPL team Kings XI Punjab scores heavily on the fame quotient-alongside other Bollywood and cricket heavyweights. Millions tracked Zinta after she filed a police case accusing former beau Ness Wadia of molesting and abusing her at an IPL cricket match in Mumbai in May 2014, charges which Wadia has denied.
Fast Fact: Zinta has narrowly escaped death twice. The first was in 2004 when she attended a musical concert in Colombo where a bomb ripped through the audience in the front rows. The second was a few weeks later, when she was holidaying in Thailand and the tsunami struck.
