Ileana D’Cruz expressed her anguish on Social Media after a fan had allegedly misbehaved with her while she was promoting her upcoming flick ‘Baadshaho’. The ‘Pokiri’ Actress made it clear just because she is a public figure doesn’t give anyone the right to misbehave with her. ‘It’s a pretty shitty world we live in. I’m a public figure. I understand that I don’t have the luxury of a private & an anonymous life. But that doesn’t give any man the right to misbehave with me. Don’t confuse “fan antics” with that. I am a WOMAN at the end of the day,’ she responded.
In the past, Actresses like Rakul Preet Singh, Shriya Saran, Sneha and Vidya Balan had similar disturbing experiences. Rakul slapped a fan at Forum Mall for touching her inappropriately. A Fan misbehaved with Shriya at Tirumala and he got beaten up by people for what he did. Sneha slapped a person who tried to get too close to her at a mall opening. A Fan placed his hand around the waist of Vidya Balan after she obliged to take a picture with him.
There were incidents of molestation faced by Actresses. Swara Bhaskar was molested when she was in Rajkot for the shoot of ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’. These things keep on happening until the mindset of men changes.
