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 it.
Even if it took 20 years to voice out your incident, here is our bow to you, Sapna Bhavnani!
Because she believes that 'if woman keeping it all within her, because she has no other choice isn't a sign of weakness-it's a mark of strength and something we need to start respecting.'
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.
