Uorfi Javed is no stranger to controversy and harassment. But this time, on a trip to Goa, things got a little heated when a group of men allegedly mistreated the reality TV star, leaving her visibly distraught. With a caption declaring that she is a “public figure and not anyone’s public property,” Trigger Uorfi posted a video of the incident on Instagram.
When recalling the terrifying event to us now, Uorfi says, “They were calling me names and making remarks like, ‘Yeh toh nangi rehti hai. Aaj, arrey isne kapde pehne. “I held my composure because I didn’t want to disrupt the order on the flight,” she recalls, adding, “But I snapped when one of the guys, from the very group that was messing with me, requested for a selfie. How dare you when you were the one calling me names, I said.
More recently, while she was returning from her Goa trip, Uorfi got into a tiff with yet another man at the airport, who objected to her dressing and said, ‘Aise kapde pehanna allowed nahi hain India mein’.
She responds, “Mujhe iss sabse koi farak nahi padta,” when asked if such instances of misbehavior and others moral policing her concern her. In addition, I believe that events when males like this may harass women and act inappropriately around them should have an impact on society. They used their inebriation as an excuse. But if they are drinking, I shouldn’t have to deal with the consequences. Face karu main uski saza. Additionally, if they were inebriated, they shouldn’t have been permitted to board the plane in the first place.
The actor disagrees somewhat with the idea that Uorfi frequently gets into trouble because of her fashion choices and outspoken attitude. “Mere aage peeche koi nahi hai, I am a soft target. I’m not affiliated with the Bollywood. I don’t have a godfather in the movie business. That’s just the way it is, she says, “There are people who would meet me well but are not friends. Even worse, it is not their fault. They owe me nothing at all.
She admits that there are days when it impacts her, despite the fact that she generally wants to ignore such people and situations. And all I can do is turn off the internet and find solace in my friends and books. I generally don’t take it personally. If your heart isn’t in it, then your relationship won’t progress, she says.
