Zaira Wasim who has won hearts of millions with her power-packed performance in Aamir Khan-starrer ‘Dangal’, became the victim of sexual harassment on a flight.
The ‘Secret Superstar’ actress took to photo-blogging site Instagram and shared her dreadful experience through a live-video to the world.
Talking about the incident, a teary-eyed Zaira alleged that a middle-aged man sitting in the row behind her on Delhi-Mumbai flight attempted to molest her.
The man allegedly put his feet on the armrest of her chair and was touching her neck and her back with his feet.
“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,” she is heard saying in the video while wiping away her tears.
“Is this how you’re going to take care of girls?” she added.
The 17-year-old actress tried to record the incident but due to dim lights failed to do the same. Zaira managed to get a screenshot of the man’s misdeed in which he is seen sticking his leg trying to touch her inappropriately.
The Dangal girl got no help from the flight crew even on complaining and ends her video saying, “Who is going to help us Girls? If we don’t help ourselves, nobody will come ahead”.
Meanwhile, Air Vistara has promised to take necessary steps regarding the incident and said, “we have seen the reports regarding Zaira Wasim’s experience with another customer on board last night.”
“We are carrying out a detailed investigation and will support Zaira in every way required. We have zero tolerance for such behaviour,” they added.
We do not know why all this is happening in India only. People are so educated but disparate at the same time.
Always doing same thing when these things will be stopped. Are girls will be safe in future?
