Eve teasing, stalking, harassment has been faced by a lot of girls in our country. Dangal actress Fatima Sana Shaikh who won several hearts with her wrestling skills in the movie recently recalled a horrifying incident wherein a pervert kept looking at her. When she asked him, the streetsmart man gave a retort which made her lose her cool. In an interview with a leading daily, while talking about her father and how he is her hero, Fatima happened to narrate an incident of being eve-teased on a street once. Her father has always been her support system and he yet again reached out to help her. She said, Main raste mein jaa rahi thi gym ke baad. Ek ladka aaya aur wo ghoor raha tha. Toh maine bola, 'Kya ghoor raha hai?' (He said) 'Ghoorunga, meri marzi.' Maine kaha 'Maar khaana hai?' (He said) 'Maar'. (I was on my way back from the gym when I noticed a man starring at me. I confronted him and asked why he was staring. He said 'it is my wish'). I asked him if he wanted a slap. He replied, 'slap me', the Ajeeb Daastaans actress said.
Fatima Sana Shaikh and the man got into a heated argument. She added, "I slapped him, he punched me. I blacked out. Of course, I called my father first and informed him about the incident. He came with two-three other men. You know how fathers are. That man ran into a street. My father, my brother, and their friends went all, 'kaun tha jo meri beti ko haath lagaya? (Who touched my daughter)'" the Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari actress said.
Earlier, Fatima had opened up on facing the casting couch in the industry. She had told Pinkvilla, "Of course, I have faced the casting couch. I have been in situations where I have been told that the only way I get the job is by having sex. There are several times people have taken away work from me. There have also been times where I knew I was doing a film and I was replaced because of someone's reference."
The actress has taken a break from social media as of now. She took to her social media and wrote, "Taking a break from social media. Stay safe guys." Have a dekko at her Instagram story here:
