Indian actress Kangana Ranaut spoke her heart out at the launch of journalist Barkha Dutt's book, 'This Unquiet Land' on Thursday (January 15).

The feisty actress spoke about the time when she was physically abused and hit by a certain actor from the industry, who she didn't name, in her early days.

"It was a very difficult and very harsh time. I was physically abused. I don't have to go to details," said Kangana Ranaut.

When Barkha Dutt asked her if it was someone from the industry, Kangana replied in affirmative. "I felt trapped. You feel people might help you. But there are no free lunches. But when you are going you fall for it."

Kangana also recollected the time when she was stalked and hit by a man from Bollywood who acted as her mentor and godfather.

"This man who was my father's age hit me hard on my head when I was 17. I started bleeding. I took out my sandal and hit him head hard and he started to bleed too. I lodged an FIR against the man."

When Barkha asked if cops took any action, Kangana said, "He wasn't punished, he was warned and told to stop stalking me. I had never really tested myself before in such extreme situations."

While Kangana hasn't gone on-record to name the person, but it's pretty clear who she's talking about.

Just a few years ago, the 'Queen' star came out in open about how she had a very tumultuous relationship with Aditya Pancholi which did not end on a very pleasant note.

Even though Kangana was half his age and he was already married with two kids, Aditya had a scandalous love affair with her and made public his decision of moving-in with Kangana.

It was also rumoured that the actress was a victim of physical violence and abuse by Pancholi.
