‘ Molested’by Aksar2 film maker: Zareen Khan

 

Upcoming movie Aksar2 is getting good publicity before its release in form of bad publicity. Film’s heroin Zareen Khan alleges of ill treatment by the makers of film is becoming viral on social media. The makers of the film, Varun Bajaj (son of producer Shyam Bajaj), reacted on the same and in fact commented that Zareen backed out of her commitments and behaved unprofessionally.

There were reports that Zareen was miffed with the film’s team who were allegedly not bothered with the actress’ security and she almost got molested during the promotional activities. However, the film makers strongly refused the rumours in their official statement and claimed that the actress left the venue throwing tantrums arguing with the sponsors.

 

“Zareen Khan and her team approved the entire tour schedule provided to them two days before the departure. She backed out of all her commitments leaving aside the press conference and a sponsor visit. She did not even complete a day of promotions, which troubled the makers to a point where they had to compensate a huge amount of money and were harassed and threatened till the week hours of the morning. The bit about her almost getting molested, is absolutely untrue, as she left the venue throwing tantrums arguing with the sponsors as she did not want to stay or eat there,” the statement read.

She left with four bodyguards and her manager in tow. She sat in the sponsor’s car who she had shouted on and had an argument with. The sponsor withheld the key of the car, but the makers arranged for another car and sent her and her team to the hotel safely, after which she left for Mumbai without informing the makers. This is not the first time that Zareen has troubled the filmmakers. She has put them in a fix many times and made them suffer losses,” the statement added.

Zareen snapped and revealed her side of the story and alleged that the makers of Aksar 2 wanted her to wear minimal clothes in every frame.

Zareen Khan said”When the film was offered to me, I was clearly told that they are not making Hate Story 3 with me and that Aksar 2 will be a very clean film. But later, they wanted me to wear minimal clothes in every frame,”

 

Talking about scuffle during the promotion of the film, Zareen said, “They had over-committed to the sponsors and hadn’t briefed me! Look at the miscommunication! They took me to a venue where I was told to do interactions while the makers were busy eating food and drinking beer. Raat bhar khao, daaru piyo but is this the way you treat a lady? Nobody came down to see me off till the car, and while I was on my way down they tried to stop me. When I reached the car I was supposed to travel in, I realised that they had frisked the keys before I got into it”

The security was minimal and the crowd came very close to me on the road. Now, who says that I was molested as their messages read? I was on the verge of being molested. I could have been molested. Somehow I told the security guards to give me their car to reach the hotel. And mind you, the security was hardly any.”

“I reach the hotel and this so-called producer Bajaj comes and demands to know that who will pay the sponsors because I did not fulfil my assignment to the end? As I said I was not even told what I was supposed to do, leave aside if I was comfortable doing that or not- so how could I fulfil?” Zareen narrated the entire incident.

Zareen defended herself from the allegations of throwing tantrums at the venue and said, “I worked so f***ing hard on Aksar 2 and got ill-treated. I am not saying that I am some sati-Savitri but the insertion of content was supposed to be by mutual consent. I can take them to Court. I have the relevant papers. And now, the makers are trying to save their a**es. I hope I never see them again in my life.”

Meet the wonder ‘Trans’woman, an unsung tale of courage: Aizya Naaz Joshi

Breaking all the barriers and fighting all the odds against her, this lady is now an inspiration to many. Till date, we have only heard transgender stories that are full of agony. We have seen them begging, clapping or doing prostitution. As a child we were all scared of “hijras” but little did we know that few years down the line we shall have exceptions.

Today transgenders are news anchors, mayors, school principals, court judges, models and beauty queens. One such queen is Aizya Naaz Joshi, born a transgender in a Hindu Muslim community, Naaz was always treated as a shame by her family. Her school mates called her chakka, hijra, impotent and what not? She didn’t have a good childhood as she grew up in a prejudice society, she absolutely had no friends in school, but she did not give up.

In her childhood, she was sexually molested by her school teachers and distant relatives. She tells that she hardly saw childhood. She was sent to Mumbai to a distant relative where she completed her higher secondary education through open schooling. She could not give much time to her studies because most of her time went doing part time jobs at restaurants, dhabas, selling items in local trains and assisting in beauty salons as helper.

When she grew up as a teen, she took up bar dancing as a profession. During her teenage, she also appeared in singing reality show hosted by Annu Kapoor. Her flair for art and creativity made her appear for NIFT entrance exam in 1999 where she decided to be a designer. She decided to hide her gender at the fashion school else she would have not led a peaceful life. She was awarded as most creative designer award at graduating show at NIFT 2001. She was offered jobs at India’s two top most leading designers Ritu Kumar and Ritu beri.

She along with her brother launched her own label of high end fashion wear.. but sudden demise of her brother left her shattered. That’s when she finally gave up and started leading life of her gender. But being true to her meant no design house hired her. She went into prostitution for 6 dark years. Till the barbaric judgement of Supreme court announced transgenders as third genders. And she took her first step of opening her fashion grooming school called fashion gurukul in 2015.

In the same year, the renowned “Tehelka” magazine took a note of her and decided to put her on the cover page. Since then there has been no looking back for Naaz. She has walked many ramp shows including show stopper for save the pug in 2014 and Rajasthan designer festival 2014. She launched MIHM a platform for MARRIED INDIAN ladies to showcase their talent through a beauty pageant name MRS INDIA HOME MAKERS. In mere one and half year, Naaz has done six beauty pageant under the label MIHM and sent more than 18 women to compete for international pageants. Naaz herself won MS REPUBLIC INTERNATIONAL BEAUTY AMBASSADOR 2017 title and MS. UNITED NATIONS AMBASSADOR title.

Recently she was among top 5 in the ranking of south Asian transgender models ruling fashion industry, with nepal at number one, pakistan and number 2 and naaz at number 3. This trans lady has proved that destiny can be changed through hardwork dedication and passion and is an inspiration to not only third gender but inspiration to entire man kind. Make your weaknesses into strengths and sky is the limit. Naaz is also a social activist and raises funds for NGO through her beauty pageants and tries to do little for the under privileged. Her aim is to spread happiness to people who perhaps did not support her when she needed them the most.

“Be a human, before a man or woman”, that’s what Naaz has taught us. Keep inspiring Naaz!

An aggrieved eye-witness, named Jayshree Kanade, was quoted by The Hindu saying, “Many people stole purses and gold ornaments from women victims. This molestation video is really shameful. How can someone molest a girl fighting for life and asking for help? The culprits should be punished.”

The dreadful incident of 16th December 2012 night still shrill us to the spine. The night which had raised the questions on the women security, and the lapse of law and order of the country’s capital, is something that would never go off the record.

Translating the incident as the replica of ‘Nirbhaya’ of 2012, Riya says “I just escaped a ‘Nirhbhaya’ replica incidence, the difference was that a renowned app bus like Redbus was involved, a bus full of passengers where no one dared to trash the conductor and the culprit other than me.”

Calling the girls to have a fight back spirit, she writes, “Girls out there, make yourself strong enough as when I will happen to you the so called society will not back you as you are the one who has to fight it all alone”

Crazy Sumit: This time, apology won’t come easy for you.

As what can be seen as obnoxious and demeaning to any logical and sane person, might be a way of entertainment for others. When India was recovering from the wounds of the mass molestation case of Bangalore, a YouTuber decided to take the same thing to a new level.

To quench his thirst for few likes and shares, YouTuber, which goes by the name “Crazy Sumit”, in his latest video of kissing unsuspecting girls in public, couldn’t have come at a worse time when India was outraged of what happened in Bangalore new year night.

“The Crazy Sumit” has a team of his own, useless like him. Roams around in public places and plays their cheap, dirty tricks on public and record their reaction. Sick, what describes it the best.

What is more shocking and discouraging is the fact he has close to 1.55 lacs of followers on his channel. People who are following him and sharing his videos and laughing on the sickest of his pranks are the same people who question the modesty of the woman on every walk of their life.

Reality check Sumit, you are a Pervert, not a Prankster. Forcing yourself on anyone is a crime that you need to be sent to jail for.

Seeing the outrage from the people, and the filth that he had spread in the society, Mr Sumit chose to apologize. In his whole video he is saying only one word “Sorry”. What is worst in this video is that he goes on to justify the act he had done by saying “I have been entertaining you for so long. Such a thing will never happen again. I am sorry guys. Please keep supporting me.”

Entertainment? Sorry? Support you? Firstly, if you think your cheap, filthy videos are entertaining, boy you are living in an imaginary world. Entertainment is something which amuses people, to lighten their heart. Not to make them uncomfortable.

Sorry? Well, these days the cheapest thing in the world is “sorry”. Only if you would know, sometimes cheapest things also comes with a price that you haven’t expected.

And lastly, to support you? No educated person will support you on the filth that you had spread by your video. People are enraged, police will be at your doorstep any time soon, no followers from 1.55 lacs of yours will come to your rescue when you are being sent to jail. And I pray all the girls who havn’t filed complaints against you should come forward and file one.

He possibly might have taken inspiration from Prank Invasion, an American youtube channel, where a guy approaches a girl and asks her a few questions. As per earlier stated rules of the game, they kiss her if he is able to give the correct answer. It could well be staged. But what is a fact is that it has the consent of the girl and is portrayed as a game, not in a manner of demeaning the girl.
