Sanya Malhotra is an actress who gained attention in Bollywood with Aamir Khan’s leading man Dangal. Dangal later credits Sanya as part of notable movies like Pataka, Shakuntala Devi and Ludo. Apart from being an actress, the actress is also a great dancer. Sanya became a hero after working behind the scenes in movies and TV shows for a long time. Today, the actress stands out among the young Bollywood actresses.
Now, Sanya’s revelation about the bad experiences in her life is drawing attention. Sanya has spoken openly about being sexually assaulted in Delhi during the trip and being severely groped by a fan who came to take a photo of her.
Sanya remembers that her first bad experience was when she was a college student in Delhi. The mishap occurred when she was traveling home on the subway after leaving university. After getting on the subway, a group of men also got on it. They were making fun of him and touching him badly until he got off. Sanya says that no one came to help her then.
“Women are quick to pick up on bad behavior. I kept silent because I was alone. I couldn’t do anything. They started making fun of me and worse. I know if I say something, anything will happen. People often ask why you didn’t respond But then we faltered. I can only think if this is over,’ Sanya said.
But Sanya says that she was surprised that no one came to help her on that subway. Nobody helped. She didn’t feel like crying at the moment, she was just looking at him. I finally got off the subway and everyone started following me.”
They were tall, muscular men. Since there was a crowd at that station, I ran between them to the bathroom and called my father. They told him to come and take me. It was a bad day,” Sanya recalled.
But even after becoming an actress, the actress said that she has had such experiences, saying, ‘This happened a few days ago. Pictures of this should be seen somewhere. A man came to take a photo in a public place and he touched my butt a lot. The photographers were watching. They didn’t help me. I called the person who did it and got angry and told him that what you did was wrong,” Sanya said.
Many stars have shared such bad experiences in the past. Recently, this type of sexual violence has been committed against actresses, including in Kerala. Last day, the young actress had such a bad experience while she was traveling by bus in Kochi. When they responded, the bus driver along with the defendant were arrested and handed over to the police. Many people came out to congratulate the actress and the driver.
