Amongst very few actresses is Khushbu Sundar, who is not afraid to speak her heart out. The actress, who is known for many popular South films, recently got selected in National Commission of Women (NCW). The actress turned politician recently opened up about this honour and spoke about advocating women’s rights. Furthermore, she also recalled her childhood and went on reveal about the bad marriage of her mother and how she was sexually abused by her father.
Khushbu Sundar recalls being sexually abused by father at the age of 8; says, “I had the courage to speak against him when I was 15”
In an interview with Barkha Dutt for Mojo Story, Khushbu Sundar said, “I think when a child is abused, it scars the child for life and it’s not about a girl or a boy. My mother has been through the most abusive marriage. A man who probably thought it was his birthright to beat up his wife, beat up his children, and sexually abuse his only daughter. When my abuse started I was just 8 years old and I had the courage to speak against him when I was 15.”
She continued, “One fear that stayed with me was my mom may not believe me because I have seen her in that environment where there was ‘kuch bhi hojaye mera pati devata hai (no matter what happens, my husband is my God)’ mindset. But at 15 I thought that it was enough and I started revolting against him. I was not even 16 and he left us with whatever we had and we didn’t know where the next meal will come from.”
Khushbu Sundar is also quite active on social media and often expresses her opinion on the platform. After her achievement of joining the NCW last week, the actress turned politician expressed her gratitude on Twitter saying, “I thank our H'ble PM @narendramodi ji and the government of India for entrusting me with such a huge responsibility. I shall strive hard to protect, preserve & nourish Nari Shakthi which is growing leaps & bounds under your leadership. Looking forward eagerly. #JaiHind @NCWIndia”.
