Actress Somy Ali has opened up on her relationship with superstar Salman Khan and in a tell-all Instagram post, she has revealed how Salman allegedly beat her up and berated her in front of his friends. For the unversed, it is important to mention that Somy Ali and Salman dated each other in the 90s. In one of her Instagram posts, Somy Ali also said that she is no longer scared of Salman.
"How do you define the real Salman Khan, and why? There is no black and white. We are all gray thus Salman can be very kind to let's say some actor or pets and he can be brutally ruthless to another human being. I deem Bill Clinton to be one of our best presidents aside from his negligence in what was taking place in Rwanda during his presidency, but remember what he was doing with his intern, Monica Lewinsky," Somy Ali wrote in a lengthy Instagram post.
"The point is that while Salman might be the kindest and nicest to others it does not mean he was the same to me or some other people. He uses his power to destroy careers for example an extraordinary singer or what he did to Vivek Oberoi, an excellent actor. This proves that he has the capability to be very good and extremely cruel at the same time. All of us do because that is how we are made and we all have the ability to be very nice to one person and run a facade of being so generous while we all have a little streak of evil in each of us. But this is at a different level given what I went through and after 20 years it has all started again," she added.
In another lengthy Instagram post, Somy Ali wrote: "What side of Salman Khan is not out in the open, and why? How do you think speaking your truth will bring it out? This is redundant as I just explained this in the question above. I want my truth to be known because I want my dignity and self respect which he ripped off of me to be regained. I am looking for vindication as that will be a part of my healing as well. I am not seeking revenge, rather I want him to confess to what he did to me and publicly apologize which I know a man like Salman will never do."
"He is an egotistical maniac and will never change. He has far too many demons to ever be able to redeem himself for what he did to many women and even men simply by using his power. One can't assume a throne in heaven when one is committing criminal acts and simultaneously running a foundation helping people. Life doesn't work like that and neither does the universe. The former does not balance the latter. I remember laying in bed for months due to severe back pain and not once did he come and sit by my side to ask me how I was doing," she added.
Even Tabu came to visit and while I was screaming and crying in pain she began shedding tears because she couldn't stand to see my condition. In 2018, I had to have back surgery because I couldn't get out of bed. The surgeon asked me when did it all start and I told him primarily due to a fall from a horse during a film shoot. Then the doctor asked me if I was ever in a physically abusive relationship and I told him the truth. Being beaten and thrown around like a rag doll exacerbated my back problems with time and now I have three titanium screws in my back along with hardware in my stomach solely so I can stand up and function," she stated further.
Somy, in the end, added that she doesn’t want any kind of support from the industry. It is important to mention that Salman has not commented on this issue yet.
