Preity Zinta is a team owner who is very involved in the IPL. Very often, she can be seen in stadiums cheering for Punjab Kings. The Bollywood actor can also be seen often handing out PBKS gifts to viewers. She has been an integral part of the team since the start of the IPL in 2008 and even in 2024, she is as passionate as before. Punjab Kings made history on Friday by chasing a record target of 262 against Kolkata Knight Riders.

During the match, Irfan Pathanhimself a former Punjab Kings player, has revealed how Preity Zinta is a team owner.

“She is a wonderful woman. She was very involved in the team. She is afraid of losing, she is very worried. [She gets very upset when the team loses]. But she knows how to control her emotions,” Irfan Pathan said on Star Sports.

“As she was a fantastic actress, very experienced and very successful, she knows that it is not easy. She knows that every film cannot be a success. Likewise, she understands that we cannot win every the games.

He added that she rarely showed disappointment. “So when she had a conversation with us after a loss. In my three years with the team, we played over 40 games and I only saw her 2 or 3 times, she showed us a some frustration, otherwise she always remains calm,” Irfan added.

“Once she made parathas with her hands in South Africa for the team. Almost 40 parathas by hand, because we won against Chennai Super Kings. She is a different level of owner of 'team.”

Preity Zinta had said in the past that she makes paranthas for the team.

“The first time I realized, how much do you boys eat! We were in South Africa and they weren't serving all the paranthas at the hotel well. Then I told them, 'I'm going to teach you how to make aloo parantha”. See there, the boys asked me if I could also make aloo paranthas for them. I told them that I will make aloo paranthas if they win the next match. Then I made 120 aloo paranthas for the team I stopped making aloo paranthas,” Preity replied with a smile.
