coming from where the players –from
both sides of the border –sat. She
made doubly sure it was coming from there.
"At first I couldn't believe where
it was coming from,” she said to the
press. “I still want to give them
the benefit of doubt because it's so hard
to believe they could behave this way,"
she said with a shudder, recalling that
she wanted to rush back to her car and drive
away from the nightmare. "But I couldn't
because the security guys wouldn't let me
pass. So I was stuck listening to myself
being described in the most colourful language,"
Celina avoided naming any one player in
particular but points out that she did recognize
some Pakistani players from having participated
in a TV interview
with them. She also said: "But what
hurts and offends me more is the fact that
people from our own country have chosen
to speak on behalf of those who abused me.
As they say, I am 'just another Bollywood
actress'. Fine. Does that mean I don't command
even the respect that other woman get?"
