Bollywood actress Zareen Khan is currently making a lot of noise for her film Aksar-2. The actress recently spoke about how she almost got molested when she went to Delhi in order to attend an event. She came out in open and stated that the producers of the film were busy drinking beer while she was being mobbed.
Zareen was then 100 kgs and later when she realized that her heavyweight is not good for her health, she decided to trim down her weight with exercise. The actress who has been an inspiration to many was once offered a whopping amount of 1 crore for an advertisement of a weight loss pill. Rejecting the endorsement she said “I cannot endorse something I don’t believe in. I work very hard every day in the gym and believe there are no shortcuts to weight loss”.
The confident actress worked hard to shed her weight and hence didn’t want any woman to believe that it was a mere pill that helped her in achieving a toned body.
On being mobbed, she blamed the producers and said “They wanted me to wear minimal clothes in every frame. Of course, I will raise questions and put my foot down na? Why was this masala being added? Were they not confident about what they had made till then?” she asked.
“They had over-committed to the sponsors and hadn’t briefed me! Look at the miscommunication! They took me to a venue where I was told to do interactions while the makers were busy eating food and drinking beer.Raat bhar khao, daaru piyo (eat all night and drink)- but is this the way you treat a lady? Nobody came down to see me off till the car, and while I was on my way down they tried to stop me. When I reached the car I was supposed to travel in, I realised that they had frisked the keys before I got into it.”
The security was minimal and the crowd came very close to me on the road. Now, who says that I was molested as their messages read? I was on the verge of being molested. I could have been molested. Somehow I told the security guards to give me their car to reach the hotel. And mind you, the security was hardly any. I reach the hotel and this so-called producer Bajaj comes and demands to know that who will pay the sponsors because I did not fulfill my assignment to the end? As I said I was not even told what I was supposed to do, leave aside if I was comfortable doing that or not – so how could I fulfill?” she asked.
