Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar expressed his state of shock over aunt Daisy Irani's stark revelation of being a victim of child sexual abuse.

The Wazir actor took it to social media to share his feelings and stated that while he is heartbroken to know about the horrifying incident, he is proud of his aunt to come out and speak about it.

Farhan even asserted that it is a warning call for the showbiz industry.

"Heartbroken upon reading this article but proud that my aunt #DaisyIrani spoke up. It’s tragic to see parents push their kids to breaking point in order to achieve success vicariously through them. This should serve as wake up call for the film & TV industry. Be aware. Be warned," the actor wrote.

Notably, Farhan's maternal aunt Daisy Irani left everyone shocked when she revealed of being sexually abused at the age of six years.

During her interview with Mumbai Mirror, Daisy said, "The man who did this was supposed to be my guardian. He accompanied me to a film shoot (Hum Panchhi Ek Dal Ke) in Madras. One night in the hotel room he violated me, hit me with a belt and warned me that he would kill me if I ever told anyone about what had happened."

She also mentioned that her mother, who was 'hell-bent on making her a star', got to know about the incident after several years and the accused is no longer alive now.
