Bollywood actor and former Miss Universe, Sushmita Sen, narrated an incident when a teenage boy misbehaved with her. She was speaking at an event to promote women safety in Delhi.

She said that despite a ring of bodyguards around female celebrities, there are men who ‘manage to misbehave with them.’

As per a report in Indian Express, she recalled an incident with a 15-year-old boy. She said, “Six months ago at an award function, a fifteen-year-old boy misbehaved with me as he thought I wouldn’t realize because of the crowd around. But, he was wrong. I grabbed his hand from my behind and I was shocked to see he was so young.”

She let the boy go after making him realise the gravity of his mistake. She said, “I didn’t take an action against him because I understood that the15-year-old was not taught that such things are an offence and not entertainment.”

Sushmita entered Bollywood in 1996 after winning the Miss Universe title. Her debut film Dastak didn’t set the box office on fire, but she was noticed. She was quite active in the film business till 2006, but she slowed down after this.

In last eight years, she has just one Bengali release titled Nirbaak. She is now more engaged with her humanitarian works than films.
