Mumbai: Dangal actress Zaira Wasim, 17, has alleged she was molested mid-air by a middle-aged man, drawing strong reactions by women rights activists and politicians. The airline apologised and Mumbai Police registered an FIR.
The National Award winning Kashmiri actress complained about her ordeal, claiming that a middle-aged man seated behind her moved his foot up and down her neck and back.
In a self-shot video for Instagram live chat, Zaira is also seen breaking down.
“I just landed, the whole irony of this that I yelled ... and this is not done ... this is not how you should be treated or made to feel. This is terrible.
“This is how they will take care of girls? No one will help us if we don’t decide to help ourselves and that is the worst thing,” she said, looking visibly shaken.
