Apparently, Gene is based in Los Angeles and the 30-something works as a financial analyst. The two met on one of Zinta’s trips to the US a few years back. They have been going steady for some time and it was Gene who stood by Preity throughout her fight with former lover Ness Wadia.
Preity’s close friends, Sussanne Khan and Surily Goel were spotted holidaying in LA and they posted several pictures on their Instagram account, which further cemented the rumours. Reportedly, the couple plans to have a big, fat Indian wedding once they are back in the country in April.
