It was a tough time,” she said.The horrific incident became a major turning point in Preity’s life. “I came back thinking, ‘Why did I survive?’ So I thought I should do what I really want to do with my life,” she said, adding that it was after this that she decided to venture into the Indian Premier League.”I met Lalit Modi at the Bravery Awards. I was the brand ambassador and his family was involved with that. We sat down for coffee later, and I told him that I want to have a sports school. It was my dad’s and my dream.
