Bollywood diva and daughter of actor Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, has revealed in an interview that she was molested as a child and the experience was traumatising. She was speaking at a round table that included Bollywood leading female stars including Anushka Sharma, Vidya Balan, Radhika Apte and Alia Bhatt.
In conversation with film critic Rajeev Masand during the round-table that included 2016’s strongest performers, Sonam said, “I know I have been molested when I was younger. And it was very traumatising”.
The revelation of the actor has, however, startled everyone but would give more strength to girls to come out saying similar experiences of molestation that they have to endure.
It is not Sonam only who revealed their past bitter experiences in the show. Anushka Sharma talked about being touched inappropriately.
Alia sad how people see the world through a bubble. She said in the promo that the secured childhood of star-kids can be much different from other kids’ childhood.
