Sapna Bhavnani known for her stint on ‘Bigg Boss 6’, recently made an emotional revelation on Facebook. The celebrity hair stylist said that she had been gang-raped on pistol point during her stay in Chicago. Sapna said that she was only 24, when the incident took place. She also added that it was only now when she is around 44 that she has been able to speak about the horrifying incident.
In years to come, I got married to my high school sweetheart, faced domestic violence and walked out of the marriage wondering how this could happen to ME, a feminist? It’s because sometimes there are things that are beyond your control. We live in a world where everyone stresses the importance of voicing yourself or walking out of tough situations, but I just want to say this— no one wants to be beaten up, get raped or sell their bodies. It took me 20 years to voice my incident, but for me a woman keeping it all within her because she has no other choice isn’t a sign of weakness – it’s a mark of strength and something we need to start respecting.”
