The hairstylist of many famous Bollywood celebrities, Sapna Bhavnani, who has worked in films like Ugly Aur Pagli, has come out with a shocking revelation on the social networking site, Facebook.
In an incredibly powerful post on Humans Of Bombay's Facebook
page, which went viral, Sapna opens up about how she was gangraped
at the age of 24.
She wrote, "One Christmas Eve in Chicago, I walked out of a bar
alone late at night in a short dress and red lipstick.
I was 24 and had been drinking, when from a dumpster a group of
guys walked upto me and put a gun to my head asking me to give them
blow jobs, eventually leading to gang rape."
However, the incident did not shatter Bhavnani's spirit even a
bit. She said that she pushed this incident to the back of her mind
for years and never let that incident break her spirit.
Sapna, who is famous for styling many celebs like Hrithik
Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer
Singh among others, also spoke that she has also faced domestic
violence in her marriage and that's why she opted to walk out of
Even if it took 20 years to voice out your incident, here is our
bow to you, Sapna Bhavnani!

because she has no other choice isn't a sign of weakness-it's a
mark of strength and something we need to start
Well, when most people believe in voicing out the rape
incidents, to bring justice to the victim, Sapna has thought
otherwise. She seems to have drawn the strength and courage to move
on in life, from it.
We hope the way Sapna derived courage from that incident, inspires many other affected people, who are still being haunted by the tragedies in their life.
