‘I Was Molested at 6 in a Local Bus’ Shocking Revelation by Famous Actress

Molestation against women is a serious issue which is making the world unsafe for women. Many Bollywood and Television celebrities are sharing their #Metoo stories on social media where they open up about a past sexual assault or harassment faced by them. Recently Sushmita Sen revealed that she was molested by 15 years old boy at an event. He touched her inappropriately from behind.

Now another actress took to Instagram to share her assault story. Famous TV actress who worked in serials like Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon And Ishaqbaaz is the latest one to join the list. She is none other than Shrenu Parikh. Shrenu was molested in a local bus by a man who made her sit on his lap and touched her inappropriately when she was just 6.

Shrenu writes,

“As a kid I used to spend my vacations at my grandparents’ town! Those days we travelled in a local bus! And when the seats used to be occupied my grandfather used to request someone to share the seat for me! Similarly, one uncle offered to nanu that ‘il make her sit on my lap’. He willingly agreed thought at least I won’t get tired, he made me sit on his lap! Me as a child couldn’t know what’s gonna happen to me I dozed off, only woke up to the feeling of being inappropriately being touched by that uncle! I could sense something’s wrong but I went all numb and thought its ok for him to hold me like that! I could see my naanu standing a little away from me but couldn’t tell him anything not then not later! I wish I would have spoken about it, I wish that man would’ve gotten his share of punishment for molesting a 6-year-old! Not once but so many such incidents have happened, I’ve known from my friends but we never talk about it! Never raise our voices coz we r scared of how the society will eventually not believe us and we don’t stand for ourselves! What’s happening with Gauri is something I’m sure we all have faced on some or the other level in our lives! And that’s why m so glad we did this track so that women can come out and speak. If we don’t own our truth nobody else will. This is just a small attempt to create a space for all of us to share our stories and raise our voices! #ishqbaaaz #metoo”
