I was molested when I was a child, reveals Sonam Kapoor

Making a sensational revelation, Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor said that she was molested as a child and the experience was very traumatising.

During a conversation with CNNNews18’s Rajeev Masand, Sonam Kapoor revealed her bitter experience which she had faced in her childhood.

In the video which Rajeev Masand has posted as a short promotional video of his upcoming  special programme with most successful female actors of 2016, Sonam expressed, “I know I have been molested when I was younger and it was very traumatising.”


The 31-year-old Sonam, daughter of famous actor Anil Kapoor, took part in the programme along with Anushka Sharma, Alia Bhat, Vidya Balan and Radhika Apte.

When the conversation turned into sexual assault Vidya Balan said, “It’s not her fault and that is the biggest thing a victim deals with.”

Anushka Sharma recollected how she would often be asked by her mother if she had been touched inappropriately.

She said, “I thought there was something wrong with my mother because obviously, I had no idea what she was asking then.”

Radhika Apte, whose intimate scenes from the film Parched were illegally released online, said, “I have started questioning morality.”
