Actress-turned-writer Twinkle Khanna revealed of being sexually harassed at workplace. The star wife opened up regarding the incident in a column in The Times Of India.

Recollecting the incident, she said “Have any frogs tried to catch me between their webbed feet? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. A few years ago, a message on my phone reduced me to tears in the car. I had reached breaking point after months of suggestive messages from a wealthy, powerful client that I had been pretending not to understand because all I wanted to do was to complete the project in a professional manner. And so I ended up as a statistic – the 38% of women who faced sexual harassment at work, according to a survey done by the Indian National Bar association.”

“I am a fairly assertive woman, and married to a man who onscreen punches holes in walls with his bare fists and yet I haven’t been spared, so I shudder to think about what happens to the vast majority of working women,” she added.

The 43 year old actress also commented on the TVF CEO Arunabh Kumar controversy and wrote, “Sexy’ is an acceptable compliment within a work environment only if she is a stripper and you are her pimp trying to boost her confidence before she takes the stage.”

Akshay Kumar’s response to his wife’s column too caught attention in social media. Check out the Khiladi actor’s tweet here.
