Shocking! Zarine Khan fights a molestor at an event where she was mobbed – watch video

Zarine Khan hits out at a man who tried to touch her inappropriately at an event

A video of Zarine Khan where she is hitting a man has gone viral. The incident occurred last year on December 14 in Aurangabad, where Zarine was attending an event. The actress was mobbed while making her way back to the car after attending a mobile store launch in the city. In spite of the heavy security, the crowd around her got unruly, and while she was being escorted to her waiting car, some people from the crowd reached out and tried to grab her inappropriately. But the actress was quick to react. Instead of waiting for the security to take charge, Zarine turned around and started hitting them back.

When contacted, Zarine shared, “The crowd was huge and the security was unable to control them. The organisers called the police to intervene and take charge. But in all this chaos, some men tried to touch me inappropriately, but got hit back in return.” The feisty actress added that at that point, all you are thinking of is how to protect yourself. “Actress or not, I’m a woman first, and I have a right to defend myself. My safety and my security are in my hands. I don’t care ki main kahaan hoon aur kaun mujhe dekh raha hai. You mess with me, I’ll hit back.” Check the video!

She added, “I think that action needs to be taken right then and there. It’s the only way to deal with such situations. I think this entire mentality of taking women for granted comes from knowing that they will get away with their misbehaviour. But I can’t take wrong lying down, never have, and never will.” She continued, “Sometimes we have to take matters in our own hands, not worrying about  how it may look. As a woman, I have always believed that you have to give it back to anybody who tries to molest or misbehave with you, whether it’s behind closed doors or in public! Just because I am a public figure, doesn’t mean I don’t notice or feel unsafe, nobody has the right to touch me or grab me in an inappropriate way. I am a woman first and every woman deserves to live, work and be in an environment which is equally safe for her as any man!”

She’s equally vocal about the #MeToo movement. “It started with such intensity, but somewhere, I feel it got overshadowed by weddings and Diwali parties, and unfortunately, that’s how these things are, they seem to get pushed to the backseat. And the wrongdoings continue. I believe that the action has to be taken then and there. You mess up, you will get hit back, as simple as that.”

Unfortunately, this is not the first such incident in Bollywood. Facing unruly crowds especially at events, is a nightmare for any actress, and most have been misbehaved with at some point or the other. There are also those who have dared to hit back right then and there. Bipasha Basu had once slapped a fan who had tried to misbehave with her. Esha Deol too had slapped a man when he tried to get too close to her at an event in Pune. Rhea Chakraborty used self-defence techniques to fight back a molestor near her house, and then got him arrested.

Sonam Kapoor’s co-star Dhanush had stepped in to help escort her to safety when during a promotional event, the crowds could not be controlled and got too close to the actress. Katrina Kaif, Sushmita Sen too were reportedly mobbed while exiting from two different events separately. Minissha Lamba was reportedly misbehaved with publicly while shooting for a magazine in Goa. Gul Panag had spoken about being molested during a marathon in Delhi.

Salman Khan to judge and produce Nach Baliye 9

Salman Khan who will be next seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat has rarely had a dud at the Box Office. Amongst his flops was Tubelight, for which the actor had to bear huge losses. In fact, he also had to compensate the distributors for Tubelight’s performance at the Box Office. While the film released on Eid 2017, it was expected to do a decent business, however, the film badly tanked. And now we get to know that Salman Khan was never in favour of Tubelight having an Eid release. Yes, the actor made this revelation during the media interaction for his next production Notebook.

During the interaction when Salman was asked that with so much experience could he pre-empt the business a film would do, which is when the actor recalled that Tubelight was released with high expectations during Eid, but he was not in favour of the Indian war drama releasing on a holiday. He rather wanted it to release on a regular Friday. Salman said, “For Tubelight, I did say that people were going there to have a great time, we knew what the script is, so this film should not be an Eid release. But they said we have got that date, that is when I should have put my foot down because people who went to celebrate came out crying. So it should have been on a nice Friday and not on any festival. The release of Tubelight was wrong.” Tubelight was directed by Kabir Khan and it was based on the 1962 Sino-Indian war.

Next, Salman Khan will be producing Zaheer Iqbal and Pranutan Bahl’s Notebook. On the acting front, after Bharat, the actor will be seen working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali on Inshallah. The film also stars Alia Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt. As a producer also Salman has several things in the pipeline, in fact, the actor revealed that he has been offered to produce something in the digital space. Salman has also ventured into the television space as a producer. Don’t you like how the actor is not only accountable for his hits but also own up to his flops?

Superstar Salman Khan who will be launching newcomers Zaheer Iqbal and Pranutan Bahl in his upcoming production Notebook, has been promoting the film in full swing. And while he has been giving interviews, the Tiger Zinda Hai actor makes sure he is at his humorous best. In one such recent media interaction, Salman gave his feedback on the Priyanka Chopra-backed dating app Bumble, and his response was priceless.

When a media person asked Salman that in this age of Tinder, how can one find  love without even seeing the person (the concept on which Notebook is based) Salman quickly responded saying, “I don’t have any such application on my phone…” And that was when another journalist pointed out that Priyanka Chopra Jonas backed a dating application called Bumble. On discovering this, Salman jokingly said, “Why does she need a dating app now?” Well, it was all in good humour and Salman made sure to give the media a hearty laugh.

Later, the actor also spoke about Notebook and the advice he would want to give youngsters. “All I will tell them is don’t get into trouble.” He also mentioned how Notebook was initially offered to him, but he didn’t fit into that image anymore. He also revealed how he always runs a film’s plot through his father Salim Khan. On the professional front, Salman will soon be seen working with his long-ago director  Sanjay Leela Bhansali on Inshallah, alongside Sanjay Dutt and Alia Bhatt.
