8 Luxurious Vanity Vans Of Bollywood Celebs
Bollywood's heartthrob Akshay Kumar may be a ‘Khiladi’ but even he has faced some abuses as a kid and that too of the sexual kind. Recently, revealing the news, he shocked his fans. He admitted to being molested as a kid and said,"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 (Hari Om Bhatia) about it. He filed a police complaint. Investigations revealed that the lift-man was a history-sheeter. The cops took action and the man was arrested. I was a shy kid and was relieved that I could speak about this to my parents. But even today, I find it difficult to say the word `bum'. We must encourage women and children to speak up and tell their families if they encounter anything strange so that they can be protected and empowered."
