Akshay Kumar says he was molested as a child
At a seminar on women's safety, actor Akshay Kumar said that he was a victim of sexual abuse as a child.
He said that it was important to encourage children and women to talk to their families if they are abused so that they can be protected and empowered.
He said that he was once touched inappropriately by a lift operator when he was six years old and that he was uncomfortable using the word 'bum' after that. He said that it was only because he opened up to his dad about the incident, that appropriate action could be taken against the man.
