Sep 11, 2017: Kangana Ranaut has never shied away from talking about being physically abused. Although she had narrated her ordeal of being thrashed till she bled at the age of 17 by a man who was her "father’s age" several times, she had never named her abuser. Until now, that is. In an interaction, Kangana confirmed the speculation that it was Aditya Pancholi.
The Queen actor said that she had even approached Aditya’s wife Zarina Wahab for help. She said, "I’m a year younger than his daughter. I was a minor. For me, this was all very new - the world that I had come into. I remember going to his wife and meeting her, and I’m like ’Please save me! I’m younger than your daughter. I’m a minor and I can’t tell my parents.’"
But it was Zarina’s reaction that gave her the shock of her life. She reportedly told Kangana, "For me the greatest relief is that he doesn’t come home anymore." With no assistance from Aditya’s wife, Kangana was in a fix. "So then, I was like who is going to help me now? If I go to the cops, my parents are going to take me back and I didn’t know which is worse, because then there’s no way out," the actor said.
Kangana eventually did go to the police, but Aditya was reportedly let off with a warning to stay away from her.
