Bigg Boss 13 has managed to keep us all hooked for so long. More often than not, we wake up to interesting things happening on the reality TV show every day. Well, I do! My mom is a big fan of the series and is watching random montages on her phone as I am writing this. So, when I woke up today, she told me all about everything that happened in yesterday's episode.
Deepika Padukone visited the Bigg Boss house to promote her latest release Chhapaak. She was accompanied by her co-star Vikrant Massey and the real-life Laxmi Agarwal, who Deepika is playing in the film as Malti.
While they played fun games where the contestants enacted each other, they also shared some real and vulnerable moments from their lives. Arti Singh shared her story of how a servant had tried to rape her when she was 13. She talked about how she has been depressed ever since and still feels the need to latch the door when she sleeps at night. She told everyone how her hands were still shaking while recalling the incident.
Arti further added, "I really wanted to share this because hum jis platform pe hain, humare jaisi ladkiyo ko laakhon ladkiya dekh rahi hongi. Bahut sari bachchiyan hain jo is baat ko khul nahi paati hain ki unke saath kya hua hai." She hopes that every woman gets the courage to speak up if anything has ever happened to her. The whole episode left everyone teary-eyed.
This gave other housemates the courage to speak up, too. Madhurima Tuli and Vishal Aditya Singh also shared their stories of being molested as children. Deepika thanked everyone and applauded their courage to speak up on national television.
More power to you, Arti. And to all those who have faced this in life.
