A few days after saying she was abused sexually when she was 17, Kubbra Sait said she is not looking for a “pity party.” The Jawaani Jaaneman actress wrote in one of the chapters of her memoir, “Open Book,” that a family friend abused her for two and a half years, but she is over it now. Kubbra had said that she went through a terrible tragedy when a restaurant in Bangalore got close to her and her brother and even gave money to their mom. Soon after helping him, he began to hurt Kubbra.
In an interview with Zoom Digital, the actress talked about writing about her traumatic experience and said, “At first, when I was writing it, this was the chapter that took about three days.” I thought this was a long amount of time. I didn’t want a “woe is me” party. It’s over. Look where I am now. There will always be people who try to put you down and make you feel like you’re not good enough.
Kubbra also said that the reason he wrote about that event was not to let everyone know that I was a dukhi aatma. “In a situation like this, we’re all sad, but I’m a long way from that now. “I’m looking at it from the outside, and I wasn’t trying to make things better,” she said.
Kubbra says that even though the event was hard, it keeps reminding her of what an amazing journey she has been on. “Talk to people, and they’ll be glad to help.” And I realise that the world is better than that one person who made it bad. She said as a final point, “You have to know that you want to help yourself.”
Kubbra is best known for playing Kuku in the hit Netflix show Sacred Games, which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan. She has also been in movies like “Jawaani Jaaneman,” “Gully Boy,” and “Sultan.” Her next movie will be RK/RKAY, which comes out in theatres on July 22.
