Shruti Haasan Attacked!!!
A day after she came under attack from an stalker whom she later identified as the same man who had tried in the past to ‘touch’ her at least twice during the shoot of her Hindi films, actress Shruti Haasan lodged a formal complaint with the Mumbai-Bandra police. Shruti’s attack has become the biggest talking point in Mumbai which is also a (sad) statement on the security of women in the commercial capital of the country.
A stalker knocked the calling bell of Shruti’s Bandra apartment when she was about to go to sleep in the night a couple of days back. Shruti opened the door casually and was taken aback by the unexpected attack on her. The staler groped at Shruti’s neck and Shruti called for help which alerted the security guards who came running to help her.
The youth managed to wriggle himself out of the security persons’ grip and made his way out. Soon after the incident, Shruti, who had been staying alone at the apartment, moved out to stay with a friend of hers. Mumbai Police started to act on the case only after Shruti formally lodged a complaint on the attack. Kamal Haasan, meanwhile, got in touch with Shruti and advised her to be careful and cautious.
Shruti is said to have identified the stalker as the same person who had been tailing her for the pat many days and had even attempted to ‘touch her’ during the shoot of Shruti’s Ramaiya Vastavaiya directed by Prabhu Deva. The crew members reportedly chased the guy out of the sets. As it was common for excited fans to get up close with their favorite actresses, Shruti didn’t take it seriously at that time.
Meanwhile, sections of the Mumbai media have reported that there was a ‘popular hero’ with Shruti at the time when she was attacked. Shruti is said to have hesitated filing a complaint in view of the presence of the actor. However, now that she has lodged the complaint, the police have now swung into action
