Days after she revealed she was sexually assaulted at age 17, actress Kubbra Saito has made it clear that she is not looking for a ‘pity party’. In one of the chapters of her memoir, “Open Book,” the Jawaani Jaaneman actress had said she had been harassed by a family friend for two and a half years, but she’s over that now. Kubbra had said she had experienced a great tragedy when a restaurant in Bangalore grew closer to her and her brother and even helped their mother financially. Shortly after his help, he started abusing Kubbra.

In an interaction with Zoom Digital, the actress opened up about writing about her traumatic experience, saying, “Initially, when I was writing it, this was the chapter that lasted about 3 days. In my opinion, this was a long run. I didn’t want a pity party. It’s over, look where I am now, there will be oppressors everywhere, they will do anything to make you small and want you to realize that you are not good enough.”

Kubbra went on to say that the purpose of writing that incident was not to tell the world that I was a dukhi aatma. “We are all sad in such a situation, but I am now miles away from that situation. I am looking at it from an outsider’s perspective, I was not looking to make it up,” she added.

According to Kubbra, as difficult as it may be, the incident continues to remind her of what an incredible journey she’s had. “Reach people and they are willing to help. And realize that the world is better than that one person who made it bad. You have to know that you want to help yourself,” she concluded.

Kubbra is best known for her performance as Kuku in Netflix’s hit series Holy Games, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan in the lead role. She has also worked in films like Jawaani Jaaneman, Gully Boy, Sultan among others. She will next be seen in the upcoming movie RK/RKAY, which will hit theaters on July 22.
