Sanjay Khan tagged Preity Zinta and wrote, “Dear Preity- as a gentleman I thought its my duty to apologise that I couldn’t recognize you when my daughter Simone introduced you on a flight to Dubai.

Last month, Preity shared her picture on Instagram from inside an aircraft. A part of her post read, “Life is always about experiences & how one is made to feel. Travelling after a hectic day & night schedule during a pandemic is so stressful with so much extra paperwork, COVID tests etc…”
