Lock Upp: Kangana Ranaut was asked to strip, touched inappropriately in childhood
Lock Upp - Kangana Ranaut.

Kangana Ranaut made a big revelation on Lock Upp’s Judgement Day. She told her horrifying story from childhood, when she was asked to strip and was touched inappropriately. Kangana said her tale after Munawar Faruqui mentioned that he too was a victim of abuse in childhood. While shocking, the abuse which he spoke of is not uncommon.

Munawar revealed that he was molested in childhood. He said that it was his own family members, who he has to face till date. On hearing his story, Kangana shared that she too was a victim of abuse in childhood.

Kangana said that it was in her hometown (Bhmabla/Surajpur, Mandi, Himachal Pradesh). A neighbour would touch her inappropriately and because she was just a child, she didn’t know about good and bad touch.

The actress further revealed about how a man (then boy) from her neighbourhood would call her and a few girls over and ask them to strip. Kangana revealed that the boy was just a few years older than her.

Lock Upp host Kangana Ranaut also spoke about how the victims are psychologically traumatized after such an incident happens with them. She stated that because of their experience and the victim believing that what happens with them is their own fault, they get attracted to toxic people in life.

Munawar spoke about the abuse and how it stopped after four-five years, after something extreme happened. He also said that his father had come to know about the incident and behaved in a certain way post that moment.

The comedian said that while he has forgiven the relatives, he cannot forget the incident. He also went on to say that he is very angry with himself after the experience.

Munawar revealed his secret to save his friend on the show. After Munawar’s secret, Saisha Shinde was safe from evictions. He did not take a moment to think and seeing how he put himself out there, Saisha broke down.

Much like Munawar, Saisha had also faced abuse in her childhood. The stereotype around the experience went so far that people called Saisha ‘gay’ because of the childhood incident. Of course, now people do know that Saisha (previously Swapnil Shinde) has always been interested in men and has all other qualities of a woman, which is why she took the step of turning into a (trans) woman.
