Bollywood actress Sanya Malhotra, who was recently seen in the Netflix movie Kathal, has spoken about a horrific experience while riding the Delhi metro once. She also revealed that a few years ago, a man approached her for clicking on a picture of her and touched her inappropriately. However, no one came to help her, the actress said. Just a few days ago, actress Aahana Kumra lashed out at a fan of hers after he put his arm around her waist while clicking a photo of her with her.
Sanya Malhotra says a group of boys bothered her and played in the Delhi metro
Recalling his horrifying experience of bullying in Delhi, Sanya Malhotra told Hauterrfly that he was once coming home from college at night when a group of guys also got on the subway. She said that she was ‘teased and groped’ until she got off the subway. “She was alone, so I kept quiet. It was a situation where she couldn’t do anything. They started teasing and touching each other. I felt helpless, but I knew that if she said anything, anything could happen. People often say: ‘Kuch kara kyun nahi tumne?’ But when that situation comes, haath, paer phool jaate hain. You just want to survive that situation.”
She added that to her surprise, no one on the subway came to help her. “Then I came out of Rajiv Chowk and everyone started following me. They were all tall, muscular men. Thank God for the crowd at that station, I ran to the bathroom and called my father. I asked him to come pick me up,” she shared.

Sanya Malhotra said that she too had a horrible incident a few years ago in Mumbai. This was after she had become a familiar face in the movie industry. Sanya said that there must be pictures somewhere on the internet, since she was seen somewhere. She recalled that a man came to click a photo with her and put his hand on her bottom. “I was like, ‘What the hell?’ But then again, the photographers didn’t help me. They were seeing that I’m not comfortable. I was so angry that I called him and said, ‘You did wrong,’” Sanya said.
Sanya Malhotra was last seen in Kathal, co-starring Vijay Raaz and Rajpal Yadav. The film premiered on Netflix on May 19. Set in a small town in India, Kathal portrays a police investigation that begins after two prized jackfruit disappear from a local politician’s garden.
