"I hope that you find the grace in yourself to apologise publicly"
Somy Ali has called for her ex-boyfriend Salman Khan to issue a public apology.
On numerous occasions, Somy has accused the Bollywood star of physical, sexual and verbal abuse. She said she has never praised Salman and it took her 20 years to come out with the allegations due to trauma.
Somy shared a video, accusing Salman of conspiring to ban her show, Fight or Flight, from screening in India.
Calling for Salman to apologise, Somy said:
“I want Salman Khan to confess what he put me through, from the verbal, sexual and physical abuse and I want a public apology which an egomaniac and a narcissistic individual will probably never do.
“And I want him to unban my show and I want India to be able to watch what No More Tears does, what I have given my 15 years of blood and sweat in working and saving over 40,000 men and women.
“I want Mr Khan to look at himself in the mirror and ask himself this question: How can you say that you have never hit me or abused me? How can you live with yourself, knowing that I’ve done these things and blatantly denied them and then have the audacity to ban my show?
“Shame on you. I hope that you find the grace in yourself to apologise publicly and to confess what you have done.”

Somy Ali previously said that during her relationship with Salman, everyone knew that he was “abusing” her.
She said: “This is not breaking news by any means.
“Rummage through any tabloid or a film magazine from the early 90s to 1999, and you will read articles about Somy being physically abused by Salman.
“I simply stopped talking about it the way I never brought up being a victim of childhood abuse.”
“But, now there is a reason to bring it up and a reason prominent enough where it is a matter of life and death for countless children, women and men.”
On what happened between her and Salman Khan, Somy said:
“The eight years spent with him were the worst years of my entire existence.
“In addition to tonnes of affairs and flings, he would constantly belittle me by calling me ugly, stupid, and dumb. Not a day went by that he wouldn’t make me feel worthless and small.
“He would not acknowledge me as his girlfriend in public for years, and when he finally did, he would insult me in front of his friends and berate me nonstop.
“I have no qualms in saying that given his treatment of me, I chose to have affairs, which are essentially defined as a search for someone who would care for me and love me.”
