It appears Punjab Kings fans are set to witness actor and co-owner Preity Zinta in the stands soon, cheering her team during the next IPL games. But for now, she has confined herself inside a hotel room and undergoing a quarantine period before joining the players in the bio-bubble. And, she appears to be pretty much enjoying this life. In one Instagram Stories, Preity has stated what is keeping her busy at the hotel. No points for guessing. It is just a plate full of fruits and greens. “Back to the IPL, back in quarantine,” she wrote on the post.
Fruits, especially in this scorching summer season, are a godsend. A repository of healthy and vital nutrients, they also help us remain hydrated for longer durations.
