In a recent teaser of Rajeev Masand’s Round Table Of Actresses 2016, Sonam Kapoor made headlines with her shocking confession of being molested in her teenage years. The confession not just made all of us double-look at Sonam but Vidya and Radhika too, who seem to be indeed caught by shuddering surprise.
Rajeev Masand’s annual round table of Bollywood actresses this year comprised of Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Vidya Balan and Radhika Apte. A discussion about Vidya Balan sharing lessons from her recent movie, “Kahani 2”, the conversation shifted to child abuse and Sonam opening up about being molested and eve-teased when she was as young as 13-year old.
Watch her split the beans here:
While it’s unexpected to have a star kid share such an experience, the truth remains how vulnerable every woman is in the country irrespective of the fact how “safe” they are deemed to be. As the actresses put it up, the conversation indeed needs to be stirred up. Isn’t it such a shame that Sonam Kapoor had to begun the conversation by, “everyone goes through some sort of sexual abuse in their childhood”?
