I Was Raped In Childhood: Rahul Ramakrishna

Talented actor Rahul Ramakrishna shared about unfortunate incidents from his past in tweets. He did not want to elaborate it but did not shy away in admitting the dark that troubled him.

Rahul Ramakrishna revealed that he was a victim of childhood rape and abuse. The reason why his revelation is to throw light in a crime that happens every day but isn't talked about and a man can be a victim too.

The incident happened in his childhood during his school days and was too young to understand what happened to him, except he felt ashamed and hurt by it until he visited a counselor for help. When asked about why he decided to reveal these now, Rahul said this memory has been on his mind ever since the 'Disha' happened.  

Also when asked if this shocking revelation would be impacting his work, Rahul hoped there won't be any such adverse reactions to this confession. Confession is the first part if the process of healing, while the expectations on men to be strong and brave, is also a part of that problem, he says.

Rahul's revelations shocked all, while support tweets poured into his timeline before the actor deactivated his Twitter handle.

Rahul Ramakrishna has been enthralling us with different roles and his latest in Ala Vaikuntapuuram Lo too earned great applause. He was a successful reporter, writer, cook show host, and policy research assistant before becoming an actor.
