Akshay Kumar, recently at a  seminar on women's safety alongside Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, took everyone by surprise when he briefly digressed to address the subject of child abuse.

He recounted a personal horror story that involved him as a six-year-old boy and a seemingly harmless lift operator, and urged the audience to encourage kids to communicate.

Said Akshay, "When I was a child, my parents always encouraged me to speak to them frankly about everything. Whether it was discussing a sexual issue or inappropriate behaviour, I was asked to come home and talk frankly."

When Akshay  was six, he was on his  way to a neighbor's house when the lift man touched his  butt. He  was really agitated and told his father about the incident. 

He (Hari Om Bhatia) filed a police complaint.Investigations revealed that the lift-man was a history-sheeter. The cops took action and the man was arrested.

Akshay as a kid was a shy one and was relieved that he  could speak about this to his  parents.But even today, he finds it difficult to say the word 'bum'.

"We must encourage women and children to speak up and tell their families if they encounter anything strange so that they can be protected and empowered," says Akshay.
