Mumbai, Jan 17: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut revealed a shocking secret about her life. The actress, who is known for her open-heart nature, claimed that she was abused when she was just 17.
Kangana stated that she was abused by a person who was of her father's age. Her shocking revelations came at an event where journalist Barkha Dutt launched her book 'This Unquiet Land'.
The Tanu Weds Manu actress also asserted that the bad phase of her life indeed taught her a lesson which helped her to become a strong woman.
She was quoted as saying, "It was very difficult in the initial days. You do fall for those traps, people do see needy people. But there are no free lunches, right?"
Kangana was not the sole person from the film industry who spoke about abuse, assaults which they faced as a minor.
Earlier actress Kalki Koechlin too spoke about similar incident in her life. The talented actress has decided to speak on how she was sexually abused at a very young age.
Kalki also said people shouldn't feel sorry for her after reading her account, rather parents should remove the taboo around the word ‘sex or private parts' so that the kids can be saved from potential abuse.
