Preity Zinta: Men with money, style, but no manners are a turn-off

A man who may be good-looking, have money and style — but lacks etiquette and good manners — is a turn-off for actress Preity Zinta, who believes good conduct is as essential on virtual platforms as in real life.

She chose ‘Manners and etiquette in life and on social media’ as a topic of discussion with her Twitter followers on Sunday.

Preity, who was earlier dating Bombay Dyeing scion Ness Wadia, added that “a simple ‘please’ or ‘thank you’ can go a long way in life”.

“The best looking guy with money and style without manners is actually a big turn-off. Manners don’t belong to the rich or to the poor, but to the one whose parents have spent time on his or her upbringing. Good upbringing = good manners,” she tweeted.

The actress, who ventured onto the small screen as a judge of a dance reality TV show “Nach Baliye” this year, feels it is “because of the growing ‘maid’ culture in India” that “kids are losing their etiquette and manners”.

“Maids are not very educated in India and since parents don’t have that much time, the kids end up spending most of their time with the maids. Therefore, a lot of the upbringing of kids ends up from the maid instead of the parents. They look, they see and they absorb. That’s my theory,” she added.
