Vidya Balan is one actress who has never shied away from giving her opinions and expressing her views. The woman has a strong aura and her personality reflects her inner power. She has essayed many strong roles and has often made us meet the real Indian woman on the silver screen. She has never hankered for a body type which the society calls perfect, and her dressing has always been what has kept her comfortable.
Vidya is always one of the few celebrities who showed guts to give an opinion on the ongoing Hrithik-Kangana controversy. She even praised Kangana Ranaut for speaking out in public what she has been through because of Hrithik and lauded her courage. There is no doubt that Vidya is a bold woman – one who never steps back when comes to taking a stand.
Recently, the actress was at Neha Dhupia’s popular show ‘#NofilterNeha’, where she spoke her heart out. Vidya shared a horrific incident when she encountered a man masturbating in front of her in a Mumbai local a long time ago. The actress also shared how she dealt with the situation and how heroically she faced that pervert.
“I was in the ladies’ compartment coming back from Xavier’s where I studied. Three of us friends. We were just sitting and chatting and suddenly I saw this guy get in and sit on the opposite side. So I said yeh ladies hai and he said oh accha ladies hai. He said haan agle station pe utarta hu. Agle station pe he went towards the exit so we thought he got off. Once the train started he came in again and said oh main nahi utra, main agle station pe utarta hu. So he was sitting there by the window. And then I kept looking at him and it was very uncomfortable you know. You get a sense that something’s fishy. By then he pulled his zip down and he started you know masturbating, shagging right there! He flashed us and I had a writing pad or a file or something in my hand. I went and hit him aur maine maa behen ki gaali bhi di. Pushed him towards the exit and then literally pushed him out of the train. I was enraged!”
Such incidents have become pretty common these days that we get to face often. But Vidya’s incident will surely give women more power to deal with such a situation. From past many years, people have been asking men to behave and respect women. But if they aren’t ready to listen then what’s wrong taking some harsh actions against them?
