Man Crossed The Line Of Decency With Vidya Balan In Siddhivinayak Temple

A few days ago, Vidya Balan told us, ‘We are public figures, not public property’, while recounting an incident when a fan misbehaved with her at the Kolkata airport recently.

Vidya reveals another shameful incident. The Begum Jaan star was deep in prayer when this happened.

Vidya recounted the incident and the anger was clear in her voice.

“I was at Siddhivinayak, I was praying when this man touched me on my shoulder. I opened my eyes and it was a random guy. Then he told me: 'Madam, please say hello to my wife'. I told him to hold on for a minute and went back to praying. He again tapped my shoulder and said: 'Say hello to her before that'!”

Are you not appalled by the behaviour that our actors are subjected to by their so-called fans? And to disturb someone while they are having a private, spiritual moment is just downright rude.

Thankfully, Vidya hit back. This is how she responded:

“I told him that he cannot touch me. I asked him if he’d be okay with being touched by strangers, and if he will mind if his wife was touched by a stranger like this. People seem to believe that public figures are fine with such behaviour. I am more than happy to sign autographs and pose for selfies. Very rarely do I say no, unless I have not slept in five days or something. But there are some lines,” said an enraged Vidya.

We agree. Public figures have the right to their space as much as us.

On the work front, Vidya awaits her next film Begum Jaan which has impressed in its promos.
