Deepika on slapping a man for misbehaving
Having said that, today, we take a look back at the time when she recalled slapping a man in the middle of the street for misbehaving. In an interview with India Today, Deepika had said, “I was 14 or 15. I remember one evening my family and I were walking down the street. We had probably finished eating at a restaurant. My sister and my father walked ahead and my mother and I were walking behind. And this man brushed past me. I could have, at that point, ignored, pretended like it didn’t happen.”
The Pathaan actress added, “I turned back, followed this person, caught him by the collar – I was 14, in the middle of the street slapped him and walked away. From that day on my parents knew that this girl can take care of herself.” Even today, when trolls attack her, Deepika knows how to give them back.
