Bollywood star Deepika Padukone has revealed that she was molested by a man at the age of 14, but she fought back to make her parents proud.

“I was 14 or 15. I remember one evening my family and I were walking down the street. We had probably finished eating at a restaurant. My sister and my father walked ahead and my mother and I were walking behind. And this man brushed past me. I could have, at that point, ignored, pretended like it didn’t happen. I turned back, followed this person, caught him by the collar – I was 14 – in the middle of the street slapped him and walked away,” Deepika told a local Indian channel when asked whether the threats for her portrayal as Rani Padmavati in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat.

The actress said she fought back and made her parents proud.

In a separate interview, Deepika was asked if she ever felt that Padmaavat will not release at all, the actress revealed, “No, I don’t think. I would have given my life to if I had to make this film release because that is my right as a citizen of this country it is the right of everyone to ensure that when you create something, people have the opportunity to view and to see and to enjoy and to experience. So, if this film took me down that path where I would have to go to extreme way to whatever it took to make this film release, I would have done that.”

“But no, I didn’t lose faith in that sense. I was very very certain that it would release. Yes, I can say that I wasn’t sure when it was going to happen, but I was very very sure that it would happen at some point,” Deepika added. – Web Desk
