Padma lakshmi shocking secretsPadma Lakshmi, an Indian-born American actress and model is famous for her roles in films and her struggled marriage life with controversial Indian writer Salman Rushdie. She wrote in her book that she was molested by her step father’s relative in her childhood days.

“One night, I woke up to his hand in my underpants. He took my hand and placed it inside his briefs. I don’t know how many times it happened before, since I suspect I slept through some incidents. Once you take a girl’s innocence, you can never get it back. What I remember more is telling my mother what happened and her believing me and then she and I telling someone else that it happened and that person not believing me. And then the next week, I was sent to India. In retrospect however, he should have been the one to go. Years later, in tears, my mother would acknowledge this grave mistake.” Padma wrote.

The above incident revealed in her book ‘Love, Loss and What We Ate’.
