Actress Somi Ali has revealed that “I was sexually assaulted by a house-help when I was just five.” She also claimed that she never hesitates to share this dark side of her life as she believes that sharing her personal experiences would encourage others to speak out and not be ashamed about being a victim. The former actress is now based in US. She has become a messiah for the women who face domestic violence, sexual harassment, abuse, molestation and many more.
Superstar Salman Khan’s ex-flame Somy Ali has revealed how she was sexually abused during her childhood days. While talking to the leading tabloid, Somy Ali shared her own painful experiences, “I was sexually assaulted by a house-help when I was just five. When I am invited for a talk at high schools and universities in the US, I share this with the students. I believe sharing my personal experiences would encourage others to speak out and not be ashamed about being a victim,” she says.
Somy Ali who now runs a voluntary organistaion, No More Tears (NMT) in Florida dated Salman Khan for eight years. Somy was reportedly not too fond of Salman Khan’s drinking and aggressive behaviour so she left him for good in 1999.
In the interview, she also cleared the air on rumour that Salman Khan smashed a cola bottle on her head. “No, if he had done that, I would have been hospitalised and bleeding profusely. He was not happy because I was trying alcohol for the first time, so in his frustration, he poured the drink all over the table.”
