New Delhi: Actress Pratibha Tiwari, best known for her role as Naiya in the popular TV serial Saath Nibhana Saathiya, was allegedly molested by a drunk man in Mumbai recently.
The TV actress was waiting for a colleague at Kandivali highway in the city when the incident occurred. The drunk stranger approached Pratibha and behaved inappropriately with her. The actress then dragged him to a nearby police station and lodged a FIR.
“It’s surprising that such an incident could occur on a busy road at 10 pm. It was shocking but a revelation, too. I learnt that women are scared to lodge a complaint in these cases, but I would urge them to fight it out,” Pratibha said.
Pratibha shot to fame with the show, Tujhse Naraz Nahi Zindagi. She has also appeared in Phir Bhi Na Maane… Badtameez Dil. Besides, she has appeared in a number of commercials as well.
At present, she plays the character of Naiya in Saath Nibhana Saathiya which has negative shades. Saath Nibhana Saathiya is Star Plus’s longest running show. She plays the role of Amar Upadhyay’s daughter whose aim is to kill the child of her brother and sister-in-law.
