The actor revealed that he also faced harassment during the initial stage of his career.
In a statement to PTI, Saif said, “I have also been harassed in my career, not sexually, but I have been harassed 25 years ago and I am still angry about it. Most people don’t understand other people. It is very difficult to understand other people’s pain. I don’t want to talk about it because I am not important today. Even when I think about what happened to me I still get angry. Today, we have to look after women.”
On the professional front, the actor is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film, Baazaar in which he will be seen sharing the screen space with Radhika Apte and Chitrangada Singh.
