Kubbra Sait, of ‘Holy Games’ fame, will launch her memoir titled ‘Open Book: Not Quite a Memoir’ in which she reveals she was sexually abused as a teenager. The actor explained that he was abused as a child and how to prevent his family from being “destroyed” she had to put up with it.
In her book, she claimed it took her many years to tell her mother how she was attacked ‘under her nose’ in her home. Kubbra also said her mother recently apologized to her, decades after the abuse. She says she was abused by her uncle for two and a half years, which she named “X” in her book.
Kubbra, speaking about her harrowing experience in the book, said she was only 17 when she was embroiled in the “greatest tragedy” she had ever known. She remembers going regularly to a restaurant in Bangalore with her family, when the owner befriended her and her brother, Danish. The man even helped his mother with her finances. The man began sexually abusing Kubbra soon after and asked him not to call him his uncle.

“When mom sighed at the reprieve the money provided, I sighed too. Just then, a hand slid to the back seat of the car I was sitting in and slid my dress off. .X, who was no longer my uncle, smiled as he rubbed my thigh. I was numb at the time…He started hanging out at our house, and mom laughed with him and cooked for him. In front of her, he was kissing me on the cheek and saying, ‘Oh my Kubrati, you’re my favorite little one’. Although uncomfortable, I remained silent,” reads an excerpt from Kubbra’s book.
Giving more details about the incident, she wrote that the attacker was married and had a child, and in the curse of the sexual assault he became a father for the second time. She wrote that if Kubbra resisted her, he would stop taking his mother’s calls. According to Kubbra, her mother was completely unaware of everything that was going on between X and her daughter and would chastise the actor for allegedly fighting with X when he refused to help the family. Kubbra further claimed that she had been sexually assaulted and that no one in her immediate vicinity “couldn’t even tell”.

The actor revealed how it all started when she was taken to a hotel by X. Before kissing her on the lips, he stroked her face. She was numb, confused and puzzled, she added.
Claiming that X threatened her, saying “it would destroy us” if she ever told them about the sexual assault, the actor said he believed what he said and added that if she had to face a similar thing now, she would have done it differently. His mind and soul “felt dead” at that time.
Kubbra Sait’s last appearances were in ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’, ‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’, both in 2020. She rose to fame with her portrayal of Kuku in the hit Netflix web series ‘Sacred Games’ in which she plays the role of a transgender woman.
