Richa Chadha's role in Farhan Akhtar's web series, Inside Edge, is believed to be inspired by Preity Zinta
Preity Zinta feels she was targeted because she is a woman and actor.
"It breaks my heart that with all my success and hard work, I have to go through all this. People will make shows and say, 'Oh, it's based on cricket.' They'll show the woman as the w***e. They'll never have the ba**s to show something else."
Nita Ambani, too, owns an IPL team, but Zinta feels nobody would show a business woman or male actor in bad light.
"I am grateful that Farhan said, 'Oh, it's fiction,' but then, why is fiction so one-dimensional?"
