TV actor Rashami Desai is upset with recent reports that claim that she and her friends misbehaved with some fans during their recent trip in Goa. Rashami, who was taking some personal time out, was left feeling harassed by the end.

The Uttran star says, “I was in Goa with my girl gang in a shack on the beach. This guy claimed to be a fan and began clicking pictures. I politely told him not to do so as we were in a holiday mood. He didn’t listen and shot snaps from various angles every few minutes.”

Though it was reported that he was a teenager, Rashami says, “He didn’t look like a teenager. He was 22-24 years old easily. There were other couples there. But when he misbehaved, I lost it.”

Reports claimed that she took his phone and threw it away while her friends showed him the middle finger. But Rashami defends herself. “He came close to me, and encroached upon my personal space. I had to put my foot down and took his phone away. But I didn’t throw it. We didn’t misbehave with him.”

The man then began abusing Rashami and her friends. She says, “I have never come across such bad behaviour from anyone in my life.” She adds that she had to hire bouncers to keep such people away as it was tough for her to chill on the holiday.
