Actress Celina Jaitley alleged that cricketers from across the border abused her after she performed at the Indian Cricket League (ICL) match between Pakistan and India.
She said, during her “glory round” with her security personnel around the stadium, she heard loud abuses in Hindi coming out of the players’ enclosure.
“At first I couldn’t believe where it was coming from. I still want to give them the benefit of the doubt because it’s so hard to believe they could behave this way,” says Celina.
Celina refuses to lay the blame on anyone for the abusive incident. But she does admit that she recognizes the Pakistani players because she had participated in a TV interview with them for a sports channel.
She said: ‘But what hurts and offends me more is the fact that people from our own country have chosen to speak on behalf of those who abused me. As they say, I am ‘just another Bollywood actress’. Fine. Does that mean I don’t command even the respect that other woman get?’
