New Delhi, April 11 (ANI): Actress and daughter-in-law of Samajwadi Party Maharashtra chief Abu Azmi, Ayesha Takia, on Friday said that if reports about his statement on rape victims were true, then she is deeply embarrassed and ashamed. In a tweet, Takia said: "If what I am reading about my father-in-law's statements are true, then me and Farhan are deeply embarrassed and ashamed.
