Zareen Khan had a torrid time in Aurangabad recently where she was present for a store launch. Apart from the crowd going unruly and mobbing the actress, captured in videos that went viral, some men tried to touch her inappropriately too.
She, however, was alert and didn’t let them succeed by ‘whacking’ them on the way to her car. A video of the incident has surfaced on social media, where the 'Veer' star is being escorted by the guards, but she herself takes matters in her own hands and is seen retaliating.
When asked about it in an interview with an entertainment portal, Zareen confirmed that her reaction was a retaliation to men trying to touch her inappropriately. The 'Hate Story 3' star was quoted as saying that she whacked the perverts as she manoeuvred her way to her car.

Not just this, the last few days have been extremely tough on the actress. It all started with a spat with her ex-manager Anjali Atha over her ‘character assassination’, following which she lodged a complaint and an FIR was filed. Zareen had claimed that she verbally abused her and threatened her after they had a disagreement over monetary issues. Her lawyer had stated that Zareen's reputation was being tarnished by Anjali. She had then stated that the incident was 'very stressful' for her and her family.
If that was not enough, a biker rammed into the actress’ car in Goa and died. There are contradictory reports of what exactly happened, some saying that her car was stationary, while some claiming that a case was registered against her driver for negligent driving. There were also reports claiming that the actress also gave a statement to the police, while the driver was arrested.
On the professional front, Zareen's last Bollywood film was '1921' opposite Karan Kundrra.
