Bollywood Blind Item – July 2019 – 22
UPDATE: Blind Item Solved – See Below
When this actress did that thing she did, what has now happened was meant to happen! See, she might not be that famous, she is still a well-known person, especially on social media.
When a famous person films someone without their permission and shares that on social media, it is an invasion of that person’s privacy. Unless that person is doing something really outrageous, like that young lady who managed to take out her phone to film that pervert who whipped out his ‘thing’ to show her when she was taking out money at the ATM.
Whatever she said happened might have happened, she was there and security also came out to help her so she cannot be making this up. Besides, it’s not that hard to believe right? How many of you have been in the same situations? Heck, we have been going through this since we were 10! You just imagine grown men staring at a 10-year old girl from up to down.
To this day, we don’t know whether these men don’t see us looking back at them or something? Are they imagining things while staring?
It’s something that most girls go through! And now, things are even worst because some guys think it’s OK for them to whip out their phones and record you!
So now this guy got so humiliated because the actress shared his picture and his name on social media. On top of that, she publicly claimed he raped her with his eyes and molested her. It’s quite something! Actually, that’s defamation right there!
Maybe if she choose some other word not “rape” or “molested”, it would have been fine. Usually, women do say “undressing me with his eyes”. In her case, she is a public figure and whatever she said about him must have caused him damages hence the lawsuit!
When news of this first came out, we thought that this actress is used to having men stare at her and all that, so if she felt this guy was doing something wrong then it must be something that made her really uncomfortable. Otherwise, she is used to get attention from men. Whatever happened that night must have made her really uncomfortable so much so that she had to speak out about it instantly.
But seriously if the man was warned and asked to behave, he should have done that. Why stand up and still stare at her even when security is there? Was he too enamored because she is a celebrity or what? Was he too shy to go up to her and talk? Why give her the creepy eyes?
By the way, someone replied to her this:
Seriously? Like men don’t stare at a woman wearing burkha?!
Check out the blind item from Mumbai Mirror. If this is true and what she is saying really happened, then she should fight him in court. But then again, she needs to be ready financially. If not, she will have to settle with him or persuade him to drop the case.
What do you think? Should she have exposed him or is she exaggerating? Words like rape and molestation should not be used lightly. Even if that is what she was feeling, she should have chosen better words to describe this situation! Most importantly, she should have followed it up by filing a police complaint since she already made her case public and revealed his name.
A well-known female actor who called out her harasser on her social media recently, received what we believe is the predictable course of action. We hear he has sent her a defamation notice and plans to sue her for Rs 10 crore.
His case is that the actress was under the influence of substances and the same can be verified by the hotel’s CCTV footage. The accused also states he will give the money (if he wins) to men who are, erm, falsely accused. Touché.
Actress: Esha Gupta
A businessman filed a criminal defamation complaint in a Delhi court against Bollywood actor Esha Gupta after she accused him of sexual misconduct. The defamation complaint was filed by businessman Rohit Vig before Saket Court through senior Advocate Vikas Pahwa under sections 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code.
The court admitted the case and posted the matter for August 28 for recording pre-summoning evidence of the complainant.
The businessman, through his complaint, also sought adequate compensation in his favour. “The mental agony caused to the complainant is continuing every day since close friends and colleagues are contacting him and his family on a continuous basis and expressed displeasure over the content posted by the accused,” the plea said.
The complainant mentioned that many members of the public have been expressing doubts on the integrity and moral character of the complainant believing the false and defamatory statements to be true.
It’s not about being a celeb. What a normal girl has to go through? How can a man be above the law. I was having dinner. He came much later n took the table opp us. Why is it ok for men to think it is okay

Earlier this month, Esha, in a series of tweets, had accused the businessman of “raping her with his eyes” The actor had shared various posts and tweets of the alleged incident.

But throughout stare. Not as a fan, not Cus m an actor, but because m a Woman. Where are we safe? Is being a woman a curse.”
