When a woman is being stalked whether during daylight or midnight, not many report it. Some prefer to ignore and let the matter get buried while a few brave women stand up for their rights and take the matter to the police.
Being a celebrity and fan-obsession often goes hand-in-hand. But when this obsession goes beyond limits and the fan starts stalking a celebrity it becomes a crime. Few celebrities often have to deal with crazy fans and stalkers. While some handle the matter gracefully there are quite a few maniacs who ruin the lives of the star which eventually leads o greater problems.
Here are few actresses who shared their experiences of stalking:
1. Saumya Tandon
I used to ride a bicycle to school in the 10th standard, but was harassed by a senior in my school who used to follow me everywhere on his bike. Once, when I was returning from tuition at 8pm, he stopped his bike in front of me and put something on my head and ran away. I was horrified and ran home. My parents got scared when they saw me howling and thought it was blood on my head. Later, I realised that he had applied sindoor. I was so shocked that I fell ill. My father spoke to the guy’s mother, and she said, ‘Such things happen between girls and boys. What can we do?’ This horrific incident stayed with me for 10 years. I think men are brought up in the wrong manner in India. Hindi movies glamourise stalking, making it cool — the hero stalks the heroine and wins her over — but in reality, it sucks.
