In her recent interview, Swara Bhaskar said: ‘I don’t think a woman can ever lead a life without being molested in a country like India. I am a victim of molestation and eve teasing. It’s the same whether its Delhi or Mumbai’.
Swara Bhaskar was groped at the airport when she was in Rajkot for the shoot of ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’. Around 2,000 people had come to the airport to catch a glimpse of Salman Khan. People sneaked in despite security arrangements and molested the actress. Anupam Kher helped her get into the car.
The first time Swara Bhaskar slapped a guy was when she was pinched in Delhi. She had a very disturbing experience while being on a local train in Mumbai. A drug-addict masturbated watching her and she got scared initially as the train was almost empty. Upon gaining some courage, Swara Bhaskar yelled and beaten him with an umbrella by catching hold of his collar. The guy, however, escaped when she tried to hand him over to the cops. Swara Bhaskar believes Indian Woman need to fight back when they encounter such problems in real life rather than fearing about getting shamed.
