“What Krushna meant was at least I was safe, nothing happened. For him, it is nothing because I was safe. He will want me to cut it short, he wouldn’t want me to talk about it so much. He wasn’t proving me wrong and said it in a protective streak”, Arti explained it well at the end.
In the Chaapaak special episode, Arti revealed that she was alone in the house when their domestic help tried to push himself on her. She said she tried to run away and got bruised but the man didn’t leave her and kept the doors and the windows shut. Arti said she then jumped off the second floor of her building as it was the only way out and got rescued. The actor added that she started having panic attacks after the incident and also slipped into depression and it was only after many years that she could garner the courage to speak out.
