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.

Angel Has Fallen witnesses Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) on the verge of becoming the head of the Secret Service when an assassination attempt nearly kills President Trumbull and implicates Mike as the man responsible. Desperate to uncover the truth, he turns to some unlike allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm and save the country from imminent danger.

Producer Les Weldon, who has been with the Fallen series from the start, loves that as Banning is put under crushing pressure, it gives Gerard Butler more room to dive deep. Weldon united with fellow producers Butler, Alan Siegel, Matt O’Toole, John Thompson and Yariv Lerner for this installment. All were excited to see Butler bring a darker, harder edge to the beloved character while showing a new vulnerability—and keeping all the fun intact.

Watch the trailer of Angel Has Fallen:

“From the beginning, Mike Banning has been almost an extension of Gerry. They’re both dedicated, demanding guys, yet both have a really personable, emotional core,” observes Weldon. “That comes out even more in Angel Has Fallen and I think audiences will really connect with him. It’s very revealing to watch an incredible hero you’ve always seen chasing others, become the chased and desperate man.”

Angel Has Fallen also stars Morgan Freeman, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lance Reddick, Tim Blake Nelson, Piper Perabo, Nick Nolte and Danny Huston. The movie is directed by Ric Roman Waugh from a script by Robert Mark Kamen, and Ric Roman Waugh. For more news and updates from the world of showbiz stay tuned to CineBlitz!
