New Delhi: Among the list of participants of the hit reality television show Bigg Boss 16, one name came as a surprise – filmmaker Sajid Khan, famous for delivering hits like ‘Housefull’ and ‘Housefull 2’ and infamous for being accused of sexual harassment in 2018 at the height of the #MeToo movement.
Here is the list of women who came forward and accused him of harassment
Saloni had worked with him in 2011. In a Facebook post, she gave a detailed description of her horrifying experience of being harassed by the filmmaker. She claimed that he made her feel uncomfortable by asking her if she masturbated and calling her at odd hours.
She came out in support of Saloni and explained that during the making of Humshakals, Sajid asked her to come to his home, stared at her breasts, and asked her to strip on the pretext that her role in the film required her to be in a bikini.
Actress Simran Suri too levelled allegations against the filmmaker and took to Twitter to share her account where she wrote that Sajid had asked her to strip and even pulled her top if she wanted to get cast in the film “Himmatwala”.
The actress had also alleged that the director had made her feel uncomfortable by asking extremely inappropriate questions, and one such bizarre question was ‘Would you have sex with a dog if I gave you Rs 100 crore?
A journalist, Karishma Upadhyay, took to Twitter to narrate her tale of harassment by Sajid, where she wrote that the filmmaker had flashed his penis at her during the course of an interview.
She narrated her ordeal in an interview and said that Sajid made inappropriate remarks when she visited his office to discuss a role in his 2014 film Humshakals. He even went to the point of asking to take her clothes off and said, if he liked what he saw, then she would be cast in the movie
Sherlyn Chopra had spoken against the filmmaker at the time and in a tweet narrated an incident from 2005, when she said that Sajid exposed his private parts and asked her to “feel it.”
The late actress Jiah Khan’s sister Karishma claimed in the documentary “Death in Bollywood” that Sajid Khan had harassed Jiah sexually. During a script reading session, Jiah was instructed by Sajid to remove her top and bra, according to Karishma.
The model shared her story in 2020 in a post where she revealed how Sajid spoke dirty to her and tried to touch her. He even told her to strip in front of him. Dimple was only 17 years old at the time.
