Esha shared her ordeal on social media on Saturday, even uploading videos of the incident.
The 33-year-old actress was out with friends when she noticed a man staring at her. She said in an Instagram story: ‘‘This guy was literally raping me with his eyes”.
Esha tweeted: “If a woman like me can feel violated and unsafe in the county, then idk what girls around feel. Even with two securities around I felt getting raped.. #RohitVig you’re a swine.. he deserves to rot.”

Gupta shared all possible information on the perpetrator, adding that he was asked to 'behave' thrice before he was eventually asked to leave the premises by her guards.
"He was requested to behave thrice and then leave..then eventually 2 guards had to be around me..even the security cam can confirm this..who is this "future rapist." Naming him, the actress stated that the perpetrator was an owner of a hotel in Goa.
It’s not about being a celeb. What a normal girl has to go through? How can a man be above the law. I was having dinner. He came much later n took the table opp us. Why is it ok for men to think it is okay— Esha Gupta (@eshagupta2811) July 6, 2019
Given that she accused Vig using severe words, while some of her followers backed her up and condemned the incident, there were many who called her out for “overreacting” and wanting publicity, ahead of a film release.
