A metropolitan magistrate’s court in Mumbai has acquitted Preity Zinta in a cheque bouncing case filed by script writer Abbas Tyrewala in 2013.

“Preity Zinta was acquitted in the case filed by script writer Abbas Tyrewala,” said her lawyer Hitesh Jain.

Tyrewala, who wrote the script for Zinta’s film Ishkq In Paris, had filed a complaint with a magistrate saying a a remuneration cheque of Rs 18.9 lakh given by her had bounced.

Jain said he argued in the court that Zinta gave the cheque to Tyrewala on the undertaking that he would not deposit it without informing her, a contention which was accepted by the magistrate, who acquitted her.
