#MeToo: Ali Asgar claims he was molested at a Delhi wedding
New Delhi : Ali Asgar, who is famous for his on screen character Dadi, has made shocking claims that he was molested at a wedding function in Delhi.
The actor described the incident in an interview with the Times of India.
Ali Asgar said, “Wherever I go for such shows, I don’t let the anchor announce my name, I just enter as Dadi. At this event, by the time I entered, people were already drunk. Unhone uske baad jo hamla kiya hai mere upar (The way they attacked my after this) – they were putting their hands on my chest, they were pinching my butt, I was molested! There is a girl in my team, and she managed to save me, warna main nikal nahi paa raha tha (I was unable to get out of there). Mera tab yeh question tha, ki bhai aapko pata bhi hai ki yeh ek aadmi hai jo aurat ka role kar raha hai? (I wanted to ask whether they knew it was a man playing the role of a woman) And the second question was – even if you don’t know, yeh toh ek buddhi aurat hai na, usko toh chhor do! (this is an old lady, at least let her be)”.
Starting with Tanushree Dutta, many celebs have came forward to describe their sexual harassment incidents while working in the entertainment industry.
On the work front, Ali Asgar will be next seen as Chauthi in Kanpur Wale Khuranas for Star Plus, also starring Sunil Grover and Aparshakti Khurana.
