You know what I love the most about Preity Zinta? That she’s fiesty and vocal of her opinions. She doesn’t mince words and openly talks about issues that need to be addressed. She was often labelled as just a pretty face but she proved to them that she was more than just that. Indian women often face a lot of harassment and Preity spoke about the issue with Bollywood Life.
When asked about eve teasing, PZ opened up about a horrific incident.
So, in school I went to girl school, there is no eve teasing and all there. There were only Eves. But yes, when I went to Delhi, Yes! I’ve got my but pinched…and I was that, you know pink cheeks, very light skin and everybody would be like ooh and then they’d try to tease me and stuff. And then I slapped a couple guys here and there. And then I think one day my brother told me, you are going to get killed, don’t get into all this and then I moved to Mumbai and Mumbai was great.
It’s so disturbing and frustrating that things like this happen with so many women out there on an everyday basis and nothing is done about it. Kudos to Preity for coming forward to bring light to the matter.
