In one more statement, model and actor Namrata Sharma Singh who recently opened up and alleged that she was molested by filmmaker and Bigg Boss contestant Sajid Khan Friday said she was in depression and suicidal for more than 3 months after the incident happened in 2011.
'I felt like taking my own life. I was depressed for more than 3 months. Had to see a psychiatrist and take medication for depression. I stopped talking to people and totally kept away from all my male friends. I had begun to hate a distrust all men,' Namrata Sharma Singh told media in Mumbai on Friday, while opening up further on the horrible incident nearly 12 years ago, accusing Sajid Khan of molestation and attempted rape.
According to Namrata, the molestation incident happened in 2011, when she had gone to meet Sajid Khan for an audition for a film. She alleged that Khan had made up his mind to rape her on that fateful day and it was only her quick thinking and presence of mind that saved her.
On Wednesday, Namrata told reporters in Mumbai, “He would have raped me if I had not to scream and push him away. He lifted my dress and put his hand inside my panties. He was trying to insert his finger into my vagina. He tried to penetrate me with his finger twice. But I pushed his hand away. That man is sex starved and a sex maniac. In hindsight, I think he should be punished. At that time, 12 years ago, I was only 21 or 22 years old and new to Mumbai. I did not want to take panga with a powerful person like Sajid Khan. I was told by many friends that ‘casting couch’ and ‘compromise’ is common in the industry. You have to sleep around to get work, but that does not mean the producer or director does it against your wishes or forces you to have sex. Sajid Khan tried to forcibly rape me,” Namrata Sharma Singh alleged.
She had done a Gladrags fashion pageant in 2009 and was a successful ramp model at that time during 2007 to 2009.
As a ramp and fashion model Namrata had walked the ramp for several known fashion designers and brands of that time.
