BOLLYWOOD: A month after Zarine Khan was harassed by a mob when she was attending an store launch event, a video of the incident has surfaced online showing the actress beating a guy for inappropriately touching her.
Zareen was in Aurangabad for a store launch where things turned worse when the crowd lost their control and mobbed the actress. Amid this, a man tried to touch the actress inappropriately and Zarine turned back started hitting him before she rushed to her car.
Speaking about the incident, Zarine told PinkVilla, “The thing is, being a celebrity comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. When you go to small cities, a huge number of people turn up just to get a glimpse of their favourite celeb. But, then, as you say there are rotten apples everywhere or there is always a bad fish in the pond. You know it’s just one or two people from that crowd, they kind of lose it or what, I don’t know if it’s any mental disorder.”
“It’s not about being a celebrity, these things happen to women in general. I don’t know what’s this sick mentality of men who want to grab women in an inappropriate manner. That’s what happened with me in Aurangabad as you must have seen in the video. Despite cops and bodyguards being there, crowd sometimes gets uncontrollable as its huge and you can’t see anyone’s face. I felt someone is trying to touch me inappropriately but before could do anything beyond that, I gave it back. I am not someone who is up for sh*t,” she added.
