Actor Alisa Kkhan says she is being abused on social media after her story of living on the Delhi streets surfaced. Khan, who will soon be seen in a film alongside actor Emraan Hashmi, has claimed that her family disowned her after her ex-boyfriend leaked her MMS online.
“My family threw me out and I was on the road. I had no option but to beg to the media for help. I raised a voice against this. This is a case like Pratyusha (Banerjee). I don’t want to die and I will keep fighting till I get justice. My great grandfather was an emperor and courage is in my blood. I am living on the road and suffering. If you google me, men and women are writing nasty things about me,” says Alisa, who made her Bollywood debut in 2013 in My Husband’s Wife.
Alisa is vague about what exactly happened: “My ex-boyfriend leaked the MMS online a month ago. I came to Delhi in April and I was shooting and this happened overnight. People, who follow me, informed me about this. I don’t know when he actually put it online. I was sleeping at home when people in my Bollywood circle informed me. I was shocked.”
When asked what her boyfriend’s name was, Alisa remained evasive, “He was just known as Sameer. I don’t know his full name. He was my boyfriend, not my husband.”
Why did she not ask for financial help from co-star Hashmi? “It is against my ethics. I am a celebrity. I am a star. How can I ask for money? I can only fight. I have my morals. I cannot beg. I can fight and I will fight,” she says.
Talking about how she managed to bear her expenses after her family refused to let her enter the house, the actor says, “I had to sell my jewellery - my gold chain and ring. I sold my phone, my ornaments and whatever I was wearing. People are offering me money to sleep with them. They know my condition is bad.”
The actor pleaded for justice and just before the interview ended, asked us, “Do you have my nice pictures? I can mail you good pictures. Please take this as a big story because as a woman I am getting exploited.”
Hindustan Times cannot independently verify her claims.
