Esha Gupta said that Rohit Vig made her feel so uncomfortable with his gaze that she had to have her bodyguards in front of her
Bengaluru: Bollywood actress Esha Gupta lashed out at a hotelier on Saturday for allegedly “raping her with his eyes”. She found the man staring at her while she was in a restaurant in Delhi. He came in after she had started having her dinner and sat at a table opposite to hers.
Esha posted a number of Instagram (IG) stories and comments while publicly shaming Rohit Vig for allegedly staring at her for a long period of time. In one of her IG stories she stated -- “It wasn’t a look of admiration, it was the staring for hours despite been asked to stop [sic].”
She said that Rohit made her feel so uncomfortable with his gaze that she had to have her bodyguards in front of her.
Sharing a lot of details about the man, Esha called him, “future rapist”. She also expressed concern over the safety of women in the country.
The actress said that he did not touch her or speak to her, but he kept staring at her in an inappropriate manner.
“This has become normal cus us girls have always been asked to look away. This isn’t about just this one incidence, this is about our society, [sic]” she stated in one of her IG stories.
In one of her tweets she said, “If a woman like me can feel violated and unsafe in the county, then idk what girls around feel. Even with two securities around I felt getting raped.. #RohitVig you're a swine.. he deserves to rot [sic]."
While a lot of people supported her and recounted similar incidents, many of them also called it a public stunt as her movie One Day was released yesterday. She posted the screenshots of those replies as her IG stories as well.
