Eve-teasing with women is, unfortunately, a casual thing in our society these days. And even celebrities can't escape this dark side of society.
But Zareen Khan won't tolerate such violations and she showed it recently. The actress slapped a harasser who tried groping her during an event in Aurangabad.
A video of the incident has gone viral on social media.
Zareen went for store launch, was harassed
The harrowing incident took place last month when Zareen visited Aurangabad for a store launch.
Reportedly, the crowd went berserk post the event and they mobbed Zareen to get a closer glimpse of her.
The reports suggested that some people hoped to take advantage of the situation and misbehaved with the actress.
Zareen claimed she was touched inappropriately.
Zareen strongly retaliated to shameful behavior
It was indeed a shameful incident and Zareen retaliated strongly against the perpetrators.
The actress took the matter in her hands and pushed the crowd away. Subsequently, she also slapped a harasser in the crowd who tried to grope her while she was heading towards her car.
Serves the man best. Well done, Zareen!
Zareen slaps man for harassing her during an event
Zareen fought back a molester.Zareen says “Sometimes we have to take matters in our own hands , not thinking what or how it may look. As a woman, I have always believed that you have to give it back to anybody who tries to molest you or misbehave with you, whether it’s behind closed doors or in public!!! Just because I am a public figure doesn’t mean I don’t notice or feel unsafe, nobody has the right to touch me or grab me in an inappropriate way... I am a woman first and every woman deserves to live, work and just be in an environment which is equally safe for her as any other man!!!" #zareenkhan

The incident has upset Zareen
The incident did leave a deep impact on Zareen who was quite upset about what happened. However, she chose to deal with it strongly.
Talking about the incident Zareen said, "Despite cops and bodyguards being there, crowd sometimes gets uncontrollable as it's huge. I felt someone is trying to touch me inappropriately but before he could do anything beyond that, I gave it back".
It's high time for women to retaliate: Zareen
Zareen further asserted that it's high time for the women to take their security in their hands and retaliate.
"I really don't care what people think then. My safety is in my hands and if I keep quiet today, there will be more people doing it. I don't know why people think women are the weaker sex, things are now changing," she added.
