Gauahar Khan has spoken out for the first time since being slapped by an audience member during the recording of ‘India’s Raw Star’ over the weekend.
In quotes cited on NDTV, Khan said, “Yes I was attacked, the physical aspect being a major part of it, but what that coward tried to do to me mentally was even more grave. He attacked my integrity and tried to camouflage his cowardice by his rubbish claims of wanting to send out a message of hat he thought the youth of Indian needed today. Who allowed the moron to decide what the world should be doing. Why doesn’t a loser like him have the fear of the law before he decides to attack a girl who is unarmed, unprepared and someone who is trying to do her work to the best of her ability.”
“He apparently attacked me because I was an actress. I’m not here to promote any kind of dress code. I’m only here to say no one has the right to hurt, torture or attack anybody. If actresses are under the radar of such harmful mindsets then how would the common girl or women be saved. This loser doesn’t represent my beautiful faith which in itself means peace and submission.”
Khan’s attacker Akil Malik was overpowered by security guards deployed on the sets of the show.
