Actor Kangana Ranaut says that when somebody sexually harasses a woman, he knows that what he is doing is wrong but it gives him a thrill. The actor shared her own experience while explaining the same and said that someone pinched her on the butt and then looked straight in her eyes. She said he knew he shouldn’t have done what he did but he had the courage to not feel sorry about it.
Kangana was quoted by DNA saying, “I was pinched on my butt in the middle of a group and that person was right there, looking at me. It was not even sexual, it was like ‘I did exactly what I was not supposed to do’. And looking me in the eye like ‘what are you going to do now?” The actor added that most crimes are done because people look out for the thrill. Kangana said, “A criminal mostly knows he is committing a crime. Even the richest people shoplift, they know it, yet they do it for the thrill of it. When you set the rules and make a person aware of the fact that this is violating another person’s fundamental right, if that person is a criminal, he wants to do that very thing. If initially, it was a sexual urge, it’s become a mental urge and he wants to corner the young girl in the dark on the street.”
The actor also expressed a clear stand on how a woman should be told to seek help in situations because not everytime she will be equipped with sources to fight the predator. She said, “I think somewhere we should tell the girls that there are a few rules. Don’t say ‘maybe,’ when you want to say ‘no’, it’s important. Your safety doesn’t mean you can do Taekwondo and karate. It also means you go to someone who can save you; it may be a teacher, an uncle you trust, a friend, or the Mumbai Police, or go to the media, find a journalist and expose them. So, to tell them this and then get severely trolled for it, is horrible.”
