New Deling: In a shocking incident, actor-turned-Congress leader Khushbu Sundar slapped a man who allegedly misbehaved with her during an election rally.

The incident occurred while Ms Sundar was campaigning for her party’s Bengaluru Central candidate, Rizwan Arshad, in the Karnataka capital recently.

In the short video clip the former actor who was surrounded by the crowd at the rally is suddenly seen turning and slapping a man who is then taken away by a policeman.


“That’s a job well done. Nobody has the right to abuse, and if he does, then he should be punished,” commented one of her followers. Another dubbed her as a “bold lady forever”, and said that she was a “big inspiration for every girl in this critical world”.

Ms Sundar, who makes it a point to back women’s causes, was among the political figures who supported journalist Priya Ramani in her #MeToo allegations against former Union Minister MJ Akbar. “Finally @mjakbar resigns… one can be an allegation but not all… kudos to the bravehearts who have stood up for the right, silencing the wrong. @priyaramani and all the other women who have stood their ground… this is your victory… Now shouldn’t #MJAkbar give up his #RS seat too?” she had tweeted soon after Mr Akbar quit his cabinet post.

The former actor had joined the Congress in 2014, claiming that it was the only party that “can bring about unity among various castes and creeds”.
