Amidst reports that bodyguards of industrialist Ness Wadia had assaulted labourers working in his companion Preity Zinta's apartment block, the actress denied the allegations on Thursday.
She accused the media of targetting her because of her star status.
According to a television channel, over a dozen bodyguards of Wadia, scion of the textile major Bombay Dyeing group, allegedly beat up the labourers, including a 13-year-old boy, working two floors above Preity's 10th floor residence in suburban Bandra.
An enraged Preity was later seen storming down from her residence and telling the concerned journalist, "Please do your homework before you report anything to the nation. You cannot target me and my boyfriend just because I am a film star."
The actress also denied there was any labourer in the building at the time of the alleged incident and challenged the reporter to prove the same.
"There has been no complaint registered in any police station regarding any incident of this sort," Additional Commissioner of Police (West Region) Bipin Bihari told PTI.
