However, what shocked the internet was his revelation about his childhood days. Talking about the same, Rohit revealed that he was raped by his uncle at the age of 8. Further, he revealed that he couldn’t talk about it to anyone as he was terrified. In his words:
“I come from an intellectual family where I was the black sheep. Maybe because I wasn’t that great at my studies, I was bullied a lot at home. I did not know what my sexuality is and why do I feel like a woman, maybe because I was also raped in my childhood time. Back then, I was very horrified as we weren’t that frank with our parents to go and share such things with them. I did not share this with anyone because nobody would have believed me. My real uncle used to do that to me when I was eight years of age. He used to drape me in a saree, put hot wax on me and, keep injections around, put his d**k in my mouth. He used to do all the horrible things. I was horrified to tell my mother because he said that nobody will believe me, and this went on for 3-4 years. I faced that in my family, and I didn’t tell anyone.”
Furthermore, Rohit Verma discussed his time of difficulty in the same interview. Speaking of this, the Ek Haazaro Me Meri Behna Hai actor admitted that during his early days in Mumbai, he had worked as a prostitute. He said this: “I needed money in Mumbai. At that time, I used to walk around the Taj wearing girls’ clothes to fulfill my needs. People took me once or twice and I bought designing stuff with the money I got from here. I don’t have any regrets because I wanted to do this, no one ever forced me.”
Rohit even disclosed his sexual orientation and a romantic relationship in the same interview. Even the industry’s view of bisexuality was disclosed by him. He said: “Talking about the same thing, Some people speak openly about it, some are unable to speak. I have been in a relationship with the actor, I will not deny it. Some people do it covertly. But, I have paid a heavy price for speaking out openly.”
