Zareen Khan responds to video of her slapping a harasser
A video showing Bollywood actress Zareen Khan beat up a man for touching her inappropriately in a crowd has emerged on the internet.
The video shows her struggling to make her way through a crowd of unruly men at a store launch in Aurangzeb. The actress turns around to slap a man multiple times before rushing to her car.
Citing the incident, the Hate Story 3 actress defended that one must retaliate on being harassed irrespective of their status and the surrounding.
“Sometimes we have to take matters in our own hands, not thinking what or how it may look. As a woman, I have always believed that you have to give it back to anybody who tries to molest you or misbehave with you, whether it’s behind closed doors or in public. Just because I am a public figure doesn’t mean I don’t notice or feel unsafe, nobody has the right to touch me or grab me in an inappropriate way. I am a woman first and every woman deserves to live, work and just be in an environment which is equally safe for her as any other man!”, Khan stated.
