Kangana Ranaut has always been outspoken about the struggles she has faced in life. Her fierce statements have rattled the entire ecosystem of Bollywood, however, her latest reality show - Lock Upp often makes it to the headlines for the secrets revealed by the contestants to save themselves from getting eliminated.
But, this weekend, Kangana Ranaut also shared a secret and it has shocked everyone. During the elimination task, Munawar Faruqui revealed that during his childhood, he was molested, and after hearing the stand-up comedian’s secret, all the contestants were teary-eyed.
He said, “Maine yeh cheezein kabhi kisise share nahi kari kyunki I have to face them. I was a 6-year-old.. yeh aisa tha ki..bahut close family hoti hai aur kabhi kabhi… Mujhe us waqt nahi samajh aata tha aur 4-5 saal tak woh continuously chalta raha…chauthe saal woh cheezein ek baar bahut extreme hogai.”
After Munawar revealed his secret, Kangana said, "Everyone gets touched inappropriately during their childhood. This is something that even I have witnessed. I was too young, and there was a guy in our hometown, who was a little older than me. So, he used to touch me inappropriately... but I didn't understand his intention at that time."
"That guy was exploring his sexuality, so he used to call us, asked us to strip down our clothes, and he used to check us.... we were around 6-year-old,” she added.
The popular actress also praised Munawar for opening up about his childhood trauma as she said, “There is a huge stigma behind this, especially for men. It is very brave of you, Munawar, that you chose this platform to share your experience."
Talking about Kangana, she has interesting projects in the pipeline. The actress will be seen in Dhaakad, Tejas, Sita - The Incarnation, Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda and also Emergency, based on former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
