Nirbhaya: The Play
Sapna Bhavnani was seen in a play titled NIRBHAYA, which premiered at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest arts festival in the world, in August 2013. It won the coveted Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award given to an outstanding Fringe production which raises awareness of human rights. The play is based on real-life events and gender-based violence : On the night of December 16th 2012 a young woman and her male friend boarded a bus in urban Delhi heading for home, and what followed, changed the lives of these two people and countless others forever.
Sapna is currently single, though she had past three failed marriages. She divorced her first husband, a German, after about a year of marriage, as Sapna said her mother-in-law was racist towards her and used to call her “dot-head” and “brown skinned”. Sapna also termed her father-in-law as paranoid. Her second marriage was to the Indian man for whom she relocated from USA to India, and Sapna used to date him when she was in her teens.
Sapna divulged that man later turned possessive and violent, started verbally abusing her and eventually she became a victim of domestic violence as he hit her. Sapna decided to walk out of the four-month-old marriage when he raised his hands on her. Her third marriage was to Indian model Sameer Malhotra which also ended in a divorce within a year and Sapna says it ended because of her. She also used to be romantically involved with a Mumbai based singer-songwriter Arijit Datta and she told that while doing the show Bigg Boss, she got attracted to an Indian model, Niketan Madhok, who was her co-contestant.
Sapna initially did job as a hairdresser for a salon called Juice and also started working as Bollywood stylist. In 2004, she opened her first hair salon, called Mad-O-Wot, at Carter Road, Mumbai, with a team of five people but later moved the store to Bandra. In 2011, Sapna started her second salon in Andheri, Mumbai.
