An Uber taxi driver raped a 25-year-old business analyst in his cab while dropping her home in north Delhi Dec 5 night.
“Our country is only getting known for stuff like this. It's such a sad thing that has happened, and yet again," Arjun said.
“...the kind of check they (Uber officials) have done for that man to get selected (as a driver)...obviously there is negligence. So today, the government has to stand up and make sure that it never happens again. It's very humiliating,” he added.
The young actor says when incidents such as this happen, he doesn't feel proud of being an Indian.
On the work front, Arjun will next be seen sharing screen space with Sonakshi Sinha in “Tevar”. The film will hit screens Jan 9, 2015.
