Actress Tapsi Pannu, who will be seen in a key role along with Bollywood legend Big B in movie “Pink” shared her real life experience of being harassed.
Born and raised in Delhi, actress was herself a victim of eve-teasing and was even criticized over her dressing sense by her parents.
Sharing her experience with media she stated “Eve-teasing and prank calls were a daily thing for me. When I used to go to a bus stop or take a DTC bus, or go to the market — I used to feel it as a part of my life.”
Remembering the dark days of her teenage and her day to day struggle against eve teasing, actress said that “eve-teasing used to happen almost daily.”
“Baby” actress described her experience of being touched at “wrong places” while travelling in public places or in local buses.
“PINK” actress recounted an incident of her teenage when she visited Gurudwara with her friends to offer prayer and stated: “I knew somebody would try to touch me — as I had suffered it earlier also. So I kept my hand at my back. When somebody tried to touch me, I had that much guts to stop him through my hands, but I didn’t have that much strength to move back and see who he was.”
Actress opened up about her personal life struggle as she stated that she is still forced to think herself as a culprit. “So I always used to feel that I have done some mistake. I don’t know what I did wrong, and till today, I am not able to understand that,” she added.
