Malaysian actress Puteri Balqis was a popular child star growing up, known for her heavy emotional roles in TV dramas such as “Di Sebalik Tirai Kasih” and who can forget her incredible performance in “Andainya Takdir”? The actress has been out of the spotlight for a while as she was recovering from liver cancer. Her last role was in 2020 for the “Pencipta Pegang Waktu”.
The now 15-year-old made her return to acting with her recent telemovies “Angah” and “Lebai Sampan”. However, what’s been getting more attention from fans and netizens is her terrifying real life story which she recently shared in a podcast interview. Apparently, she has been going through a very traumatic experience involving her father.
Trigger warning: the content shared in the interview are disturbing:
Puteri Balqis, fondly known as Aqish, was recently interviewed on the Bros Gang TV’s podcast and YouTube channel where she revealed disturbing details about growing up with her father. In the video posted on Twitter, the actress shared how her father would sexually and physically abuse her. It allegedly started when she was only 5 years old. She revealed that her father would invite her to watch porn with him and his friends.
“I was 5 years old and when my mom was sick, he wouldn’t even care, he’d just masturbate on the side,” she recalled. Her father also apparently would wank in front of her and her mother in car rides as well. What sent shivers down everyone’s spine was when the 15-year-old revealed that her father would molest her while she was showering or even studying in her room.
According to the Asian Television Best Actress award recipient, her father would sexually abuse her mother as well. Plus, he’d beat both of them from time to time even going as far as putting a sharp object to his (now ex) wife’s throat, threatening her to shut up. “I’m sorry mommy, I couldn’t take it anymore,” the child actor said in the full interview after being told to keep quiet for years as her mother believes people would use the story against them.
Netizens were lost for words but many have shown their support for Aqish and her mother and thanked Bros Gang TV for giving the actress a platform to share her story. According to Aqish, her father is now married to a rich woman who she believes might suffer the same fate as her and her mother. It is currently unknown if the actress has filed a report against her father.

According to Norashikin, she hopes that netizens would stop blaming her and her daughter for someone else’s crimes and wishes that Aqish would live a happier life in the future.
