Bollywood actor and former Miss Universe, Sushmita Sen, has spoken about an incident when a 15-year-old boy molested her. Giving her opinion on the #MeToo campaign, Sushmita revealed that even though celebrities move around with a bunch of security guards that doesn’t mean they can’t be harassed.
The Biwi no 1 actor said, “Six months ago at an award function, a fifteen-year-old boy misbehaved with me as he thought I wouldn’t realise because of the crowd around. But, he was wrong. I grabbed his hand from my behind and I was shocked to see he was so young.”
“I held him by his neck and took him for a walk. I told him if I make a hue and cry, his life would be over. He denied having misbehaved at first, but I made sure he understood that I knew. He realised his mistake, said sorry and promised me that it will never happen again,” she added.
She let the boy go after making him realise the seriousness of his mistake because at his age, he probably didn’t realise the seriousness of the matter. “I didn’t take an action against him because I understood that the 15-year-old was not taught that such things are an offence and not entertainment.”
