A video of Bollywood actor Zareen Khan slapping a man who allegedly touched her inappropriately has surfaced on the internet.
According to Hindustan Times, Zareen was mobbed by a crowd of unruly men at a store launch in Aurangabad city of India last month.
In the video, the actor is seen slapping the man multiple times before getting into her car.
“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,” the Bollywood actor was quoted as saying about the incident.
“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….”
Zareen, who has has acted in films including Hate Story 3, Housefull 2 and Veer, made her debut with Salman Khan’s Yuvraj.
