Preity and Gene started dating around 18 months back. Gene is a high-flying financial analyst and was seen accompanying Preity for many of her IPL matches. He was also by Preity’s side when she had a breakup with her former boyfriend, Ness Wadia.
Interestingly, when the two of them started dating, their friends believed that their relationship will not last long. However, they seem to have proved their detractors wrong.
Soon after the announcement, Preity's close friends congratulated her on Twitter:
