Actress Zaira Wasim Molested While Travelling From Delhi To Mumbai
Secret Superstar actress Zaira Wasim, who is all 17 years of age, was allegedly molested while on an Air Vistara flight from New Delhi to Mumbai. Zaira took to Instagram live and narrated the incident, breaking down. A middle-aged man sitting behind her on the flight had allegedly caressed her neck while she was trying to fall asleep. Things got worse when the lights were dimmed and she couldn’t take photos of the man. Zaira also added that the crew members were of no help.
Air Vistara have since stated that they have zero tolerance for such cases and are looking into the matter.
We @airvistara have seen the reports regarding @ZairaWasimmm experience with another customer on board last night. We are carrying out detailed investigation and will support Zaira in every way required. We have zero tolerance for such behaviour.

Actress Accuses Dustin Hoffman Of Groping Her Several Times During The Broadway Show Of Death Of A Salesman
The Hollywood Reporter‘s recent guest column had actress Kathryn Rossetter write about how Dustin Hoffman groped her multiple times while they were performing The Death of a Salesman on Broadway in the 1980s. The actress is one of the many women who has come forward, accusing the Hollywood actor of sexual misconduct. On November 1, THR‘s guest column featured writer Anna Graham Hunter’s experience with working with Hoffman when she was an intern. The column resulted in several other women coming forward with similar experience with the actor.
Rossetter, in her column, wrote how she performed with the actor eight times on stage, but was subjected to several instances of being groped and touched inappropriately.
“One night he actually started to stick his fingers inside me. Night after night I went home and cried. I withdrew and got depressed and did not have any good interpersonal relationships with the cast. How could the same man who fought to get me the job, who complimented my work, who essentially launched my career, who gave me the benefit of his wisdom as an actor, how could he also be this sexual power abuser? Was I doing something? Was it my fault?”
