Television actress Rupali Ganguli who is very popular for her role in Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai became a victim of road rage on Friday.

She was traveling with her son and her 20-year-old caretaker when the incident took place in Andheri.

"Nobody even bothered to get off their vehicle. Nobody came forward to help. The much-touted spirit of Mumbai is long gone. I had never been that scared. I have come back from work at the oddest of hours, but I never had such an experience."

"I didn't even realise that my car had touched their bike until one of them started to bang the bonnet. He started hurling abuses at me. I folded my hands and apologised, as I had my son and my 20-year old caretaker with me. I didn't want to get into a brawl with them around. I tried to reverse my car but couldn't because there were other vehicles around."

Talking about the Police cooperation she received, she said "The policemen were extremely helpful. In my state of panic, I had forgotten to note the bike's licence plate or take the men's photographs, but they tracked the bikers down quickly, They apologised profusely and so did their mothers."
