TV actress and Bigg Boss contestant Arti Singh recently revealed a dark chapter of her life which even haunts her even today.
Arti was brave enough to reveal on national television that her house help tried to rape her when she was 13-years-old. Arti revealed this when an acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal entered the house for the promotion of Chhapaak. During one of the tasks, Laxmi asked every housemate to talk about their life-altering experiences.
After listening to this, Arti Singh’s brother Krushna Abhishek and her wife Kashmera Shah are completely devasted and in an interview with a media portal, Kashmera has opened up about her reaction. She even told that both of them had no idea about this incident with Arti.
The report quoted Kashmera as saying, “Krushna and I are very blind-sided by this thing. We heard it for the first time on TV. Arti is in a house where nobody is her own and you feel very vulnerable. I am happy she shared and now we know how to handle it. We will wait for her to come out.”
She went on revealing that she knew about the panic attacks but didn’t know the reason for it.
“She used to get panic attacks but we didn’t know this was the source. She never told us. Had we known, we would have taken some kind of action. Do you think I am that kind of a woman who would keep quiet? I am more upset than her that she didn’t tell her. But I understand her part as well. There are some things you can’t share and I don’t blame her,” Shah was further quoted.
After the episode of Bigg Boss 13 aired, a set of people started blaming Krushna and Kashmera for not knowing about this.
On that Kashmera said, “I wish she would have told us. We want to protect her. We are her family. We feel helpless. And there are people online, who think that not knowing about the matter is our fault. I want to tell all the girls that this is not something you should keep quiet about. You have to tell your family. I also feel had we known about it and Arti told on television that she had to go through this and her family supported her throughout, which would have been a good inspiration.”
