Molesters beware, Bollywood women will hit backMay 14th, 2009 - 1:00 pm ICT by IANS

Mumbai, May 14 (IANS) Most Bollywood beauties don’t take sexual harassment lightly. From Amisha Patel and Kalki Koechlin of “Dev D” fame to “Traffic Signal” star Neetu Chandra and Minissha Lamba - they all are quite sure that if any molester comes their way, he would get a thrashing that he would remember for the rest of his life!
But there are some who prefer to ignore, forget and move on.
Eesha Koppikhar: I have never tried my martial arts on anybody yet. However, I know that I surely will if I need to. I’m a red belt in Taekwondo and getting all set to appear for my black belt next month. So all you eve teasers out there, beware!
Chitrangada Singh: I will ignore him as much as possible because sometimes that’s the best reply. Else I will talk straight to him around what exactly is he doing. After that whatever way it goes, I won’t really care. Usually calmness saves the situation!
Neetu Chandra: I would play it quite simple actually. One kick, right on his face, no questions asked. Period. Case closed. When would otherwise my martial arts come to good use?
Kalki Koechlin: Most days I would ignore it. However, if I was having a really bad day then I might shout, scream, deliver a lecture or make a scene depending on the intensity of the eve teaser’s act.
Anushka Manchanda: I will turn around say, “Ooho, zara is ladke ki a** ko to dekho. Idhar toh aa chikne’! Believe me, I’m capable of doing that. Actually whenever this has happened to me, I have usually just stopped and stared hard with full contempt at the guys who do it. They usually get embarrassed and make a run for their lives. I have slapped a guy once a long time ago. He looked so stunned and his shock was so funny that I almost laughed at his face.
Minissha Lamba: Most of the times I just let things go because it’s not worth it. But if this teasing happens to me when I am in a foul mood then lord save the person!
Koena Mitra: I wouldn’t give them any importance because that’s what they are looking for actually. I wouldn’t even bother to teach them a lesson.
Divya Dutta: I have beaten quite a few of these eve teasers back there in Punjab. I detest eve teasing and would never let the guy go scot-free.
Sophie Chaudhary: In fact, some time back I came across this drunk security guard who kept falling on me rather than protecting me. I put him in place by giving him a tight slap. Seriously, I wouldn’t allow anyone to misbehave with me. I would be sensible though and wouldn’t take on a gang of eve teasers by myself. I would make sure that I had someone with me so that I am safe.
