Recently we told you about the unfortunate incident that happened with Bipasha Basu at the night club where a stranger came and tried to fondle her. That got over when John nabbed the guy and beat him black and blue but here is the word from Bips herself. Bipasha Basu says her being molested has nothing to do with her being a sex symbol. Just because my image is that of a sex symbol, that doesn't give a person the right to touch me.
You don't have to be provocatively dressed, or made up to be misbehaved with. You just have to be a woman. What is surprising is that this happened to me as a celebrity, at a crowded place, among friends. I had faced something similar in Jaipur a while ago, this is the second time it has happened. But more than molestation, I'd call it misbehaviour.
Misbehaviour happens with every woman, at every place, everyday. What women have to do is not to keep quiet about it, but hit back at these people. When something like this happens, there's a sense of shock, of outrage. Had John not intervened, I would have disciplined him myself. He actually started denying he did what he did when he
was being disciplined.
