Shocking confession: Shrenu Parikh opens up on being molested as a child

MUMBAI: Television actress Shrenu Parikh has made a shocking confession, leaving everyone zapped.

Recently, businessvoip reported about Ishqbaaaz revolving a track where in a shocking development, Gauri (Shrenu) will be seen getting molested by a superstar in the upcoming episodes of Star Plus’Ishqbaaaz.

After shooting this heart-wrenching sequence, Shrenu has gone on to confess a sad chapter of her life from her childhood days which the actress still cannot erase off. She has shared a dreadful incident of being molested by a man in a bus when she was a six-year-old.

Shrenu narrated the entire incident on her Instagram profile. She mentioned in a post, “As a kid I used to spend my vacations at my grandparents’ town! Those days we travelled in a local bus! And when the seats used to be occupied my grandfather used to request someone to share the seat for me! Similarly one uncle offered to nanu that ‘il make her sit on my lap’ He willingly agreed thought atleast I won’t get tired, he made me sit on his lap!

Me as a child couldn’t know what’s gonna happen to me I dozed off, only woke up to the feeling of being inappropriately being touched by that uncle! I could sense somethings wrong but I went all numb and thought it’s ok for him to hold me like that! I could see my naanu standing a little away from me but couldn’t tell him anything not then not later!

I wish I would have spoken about it, I wish that man would’ve gotten his share of punishment for molesting a 6 year old!

Not once but so many such incidents have happened, I’ve known from my friends but we never talk about it! Never raise our voices cz we r scared of how the society will eventually not believe us and we don’t stand for ourselves!

What’s happening with Gauri is something I’m sure we all have faced on some or the other level in our lives!

And that’s why m so glad we did this track so that women can come out and speak. If we don’t own our truth nobody else will. This is just a small attempt to create a space for all of us to share our stories and raise our voices! (sic)”.

Shrenu, it requires a lot of courage to come up in open and make such a shocking confession in public. We hope that people read this and realize that there should be a strict law against child abuse and it is high time that the mentality towards girls and women should change.

Kudos to the producer Gul Khan for bringing such an eye-opening track in the show to spread more awareness.

7 characters who make Mere Sai a delight

MUMBAI: Sony Entertainment Television’s show ‘Mere Sai’ with its simple and engaging narrative of one of the most revered saints has impressed audiences all over. Emotional tales of Sai Baba helping his devotees and villagers of Shirdi in their difficult times with his universal accepted teachings of ‘Shraddha and Saburi’ (faith and patience) have captured attention of viewers across age groups. The beautiful rendition of heart touching stories involved multiple characters from Shirdi, we hereby list 7 of the most interesting and important personalities –

Shree Sai Baba

Immortal stories of Sai Baba’s grace and kindness have been narrated worldwide and passed on for generations. He was always known to lead a simple life and go around Shirdi asking for alms and his devotees would visit Dwarkamai to seek his blessings and guidance. Abeer Soofi who essays the role of Sai, with his clear Hindi and Sanskrit diction has enamored audiences. His soulful portrayal of the saint has struck a chord with the followers of Sai all over.

Baija Maa

Baija has played a very important role in Sai’s life and had secured a place that could never be replaced by anyone else. She was a mother to the young fakir when he entered Sai as a teenager and lovingly looked after him. She would admonish people who troubled him and was always concerned with his well-being. Toral Rasputra has played the part of Baija beautifully, reflecting myriad emotions of love, concern, affection and anger as well. Wearing a traditional nine-yard saree, Toral has effortlessly enacted the role of Baija on Indian Television.

Kulkarni Sarkar

Kulkarni Sarkar is one of the most interesting persona in the tale of Sai. An individual who dislikes Sai as people respect the fakir more and hence consult him for all their problems. Kulkarni commands respect and is feared by everyone in the village. Veteran actor Vaibhav Mangle enacts the villain’s part and constantly plots to trick and show Sai in a bad light along with different allies. Needless to say, he always fails in his motives and glory of Sai increases manifold.


Mhalsapati is one of the most crucial personality in the saint’s story. The individual who accosted him by the name ‘Sai’ for the very first time. Chirag Dave plays the role of Mhalsapati and is one of the foremost devotees of Sai. He is known to be the first one to worship Baba when he arrived Shirdi. Chirag was very comfortable playing the role of Mhalsapati as he has already done few of the Bollywood movies.

Appa Kote Patil

Appa Kote Patil essayed by Hemat Thatte was a land owner, and had a humongous revenue collection in Shirdi. Other than Mhalsapati and Baija, Appa was the third one who was very close to Sai Baba. Sai used to take Bhiksha from Appa’s house regularly. Sai was always seen along with few of his devotees when he visited different houses in Shirdi and Appa would be seen with him on a regular basis.


A special bond is shared between Sai Baba and his little bhakt, Jhipri. She would follow him everywhere and seeks his advice on everything she did. Sai Baba loved children and Jhipri was one of his favorites, one of the most memorable incidents is when Sai Baba lit multiple lamps using water in Dwarkamai on the eve of Diwali to make her smile. Even off-screen Abeer Soofi and Jhipri played by Dhruti Mangeshkar, share the same bond.


Ratnakar a wealthy Indian who had made a huge fortune overseas had returned to Shirdi and had ulterior motives in his heart. He detested Sai and used different methods to make Sai leave Shirdi. He had also joined hands with Kulkarni to fulfil his evil plans. However, Sai remains undeterred and continues his path of loving everyone around him and showering his blessings. Tarun Khanna who essays the role of Ratnakar is a friend of Abeer in real life and have a lot of pleasant memories together.

Stay tuned to Sony TV at 7 for the mythological saga.
