Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar shocked everyone at a recent seminar held in Mumbai with the revelations he made. In a discussion at women’s safety seminar in the presence of Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Akshay Kumar spoke about child abuse. He told the audience that at the age of six he was molested by a liftman.
“When I was six, I was on my way to a neighbour’s house when the lift man touched my butt. I was really agitated and told my father about it. He filed a police complaint. Investigations revealed that the lift-man was a history-sheeter” says Akshay Kumar.
Akshay Kumar conveyed a very fruitful message to the audience. He said that as a child his parents always encouraged him to share everything with them and not hesitate. He asks the audience to be open with their child.
Previously many other celebrities like Kalki Koechlin, Swara Bhaskar and Sonam Kapoor have shared their traumatic incidences of being molested as a child.
