While Independence Day celebrations draw closer and each one narrates the stories of freedom fighters and their patriotism, Farah Khan reveals a dark story from her childhood!
When the contestants of the show 'Just Dance' were fighting the battle for top 11 in the show with their enthralling performances on freedom and independence of India, Farah Khan managed to narrate an untold story of how her family had a narrow escape from death during the 1993 bomb blasts and riots.
She said, "We were a Muslim family staying in a cosmopolitan society, however during the riots when everyone was struggling for their lives, we were saved by our Hindu neighbours who helped my family by discarding their name plates from the doors so that our house doesn't stand out which would have otherwise caught the attention of the activists. I was very young then and none of us had the courage to step out alone. Eventually, the neighbors took us with them and we were given shelter and hence saved from being stabbed to death."
Farah adds, "This is one of my darkest memory and I hope no one has to go through this in his/her life."
