Feature

The #MeToo movement has opened a can of worms and every Indian celebrity is in favour of the campaign. People are coming out for supporting each other in complete solidarity with the women sharing their experiences.

Unlike all the other actresses, Salman Khan’s ex-girlfriend, Somy Ali had reiterated her story about facing the sexual misconduct. Pakistani model-actress penned down an emotional post through social media for appreciating the efforts, courage to all who have spoken up.

“As a survivor of sexual abuse at the age of 5 and rape at 14, I would like to salute all those that have spoken up and plan on doing so. I know it is very difficult to do it because I have been there and it took me many years to be able to talk about it. It takes immense amount of courage to share this with the world. It’s even harder when you tell those that are close to you and they are supposed to protect you, yet they do nothing. I have been there too and it hurts like hell. But I want these survivors to know it is truly liberating and completely worth it. Do not let the nonbelievers stop you. This is your truth. Do not ever be afraid to speak your truth. Do not let this opportunity pass you. This is a moment that has been long overdue for all of us,” wrote Somy Ali in the caption.

The model further added “I grew up amidst an atmosphere of domestic violence in Pakistan and many of my mom’s friends were victims of physical abuse as well. When I would ask my mom about the bruises on their bodies, I was always told that X aunty or Y aunty fell down the stairs. This was the standard, universal euphemism for physical abuse.”

Karan Arjun actor’s ex-flame Somy Ali, entered Bollywood back in 90s, but then she shifted to Florida where she founded a NGO named as ‘No More Tears’.  

However, this is not the first time when Somy has opened up about her past. In 2015, Somy Ali shared her past experience during an interview with a leading media house.
