‘Kumkum Bhagya’ actress Shikha Singh files a police complaint against a cop who slut-shamed her!

Television actress Shikha Singh who is currently portraying the role of Aliya in popular television show ‘Kumkum Bhagya’ was recently in the news regarding getting some weird comment on one of her picture.


The actress was slut-shamed by a police, who asked her to upload some bikini pictures as a New Year gift. The comment she received is “Beautiful. Pl upload some hottest poses with bikini or microminis as new year gift”.

Sharing a picture, where she had compiled the officer’s picture, his Facebook profile and his ridiculous comment, she wrote, “Just bcos a person doesn’t put hands at you, that doesn’t mean they aren’t abusive. Abuse is Control, Blatant disrespect, and also hurtful words. You can’t get away easy Mr. Jagdish Gunge !! Shame on you!!

Well, now the actress has filed a complaint against an official from the Regional Transport Office (RTO) for objectifying her.

Shikha had told one of the leading entertainment portals that she found out that the officer lives in Thane and that she is going to go to the Thane police station on 21st January 2018 to find this guy. Well, the actress did go to the Thane Police Station and also filed a complaint against him. The actress, in a statement to Pinkvilla, stated, “I am not going to take this lying down and will see to it that strict action is initiated against this man. The police has been supportive throughout and they even helped me to trace him to Thane, where he resides.”

Apart from standing up for herself, the actress feels that as a celebrity, it’s her moral responsibility to speak up against such incidents. “We are used to getting hate mails for our screen image, but this amounts to perversion. Many women keep mum about such incidents, but as celebrities, it is our responsibility to not let them go unnoticed. I hope that my step encourages other women to speak up. Just because we are in the glamour industry, people feel that it’s their birthright to objectify us. My fight is not just against this man, but the mindset which is plaguing our society. I appeal to all men and women, who have faced such experiences, to come out in the open, and name and shame the perpetrators.”
