Fatima Sana Shaikh who is currently busy with the promotions of her recently released Netflix film Ajeeb Daastaans, recalled an incident when her father chased a man after the latter misbehaved with Fatima.
As per a report in Hindustan Times, in a video interview with ETimes, Fatima revealed that once when she was on her way back from the gym, she noticed a man staring at her and confronted him. In turn, he punched her and she blacked out.
The Ludo actress was quoted as saying, "Main raste mein jaa rahi thi gym ke baad. Ek ladka aaya aur wo ghoor raha tha. Toh maine bola, 'Kya ghoor raha hai?' (He said) 'Ghoorunga, meri marzi.' Maine kaha 'Maar khaana hai?' He said, 'Maar'. (I was on my way back from the gym when I noticed a man starring at me. I confronted him and asked why he was staring. He said 'it is my wish'. I asked him if he wanted a slap. He replied, 'slap me').
Things turned ugly when in the midst of their war of words, the man punched her.
Speaking about the same, Fatima recalled, "I slapped him, he punched me. I blacked out. Of course, I called my father first and informed him about the incident. He came with two-three other men. You know how fathers are. That man ran into a street. My father, my brother, and their friends went all, 'kaun tha jo meri beti ko haath lagaya? (Who touched my daughter?)."
Fatima said that her father is a strong person and her strong support system.
On a related note, the actress recently took to her Instagram story and announced that she is taking a short break from social media.
