Bollywood director Sajid Khan has been the talk of not only the B-Town but also across the country for all wrong reasons. The director came under scrutiny when several women made allegations against him for sexual abuse under the #MeToo movement in the country. He was also forced to step back as the director of Housefull 4 for the same reason. Recently, actor Jiah Khan’s sister accused the filmmaker on similar grounds in a documentary.
This documentary by BBC is titled ‘Death in Bollywood’ where Karishma Khan accused Sajid Khan for sexually harassing her sister Jiah who died in 2013. The actor had died by suicide and in the documentary her sister made serious revelations which are extremely shocking. The documentary is divided into three series based on the actor’s life and has been released only in the UK.
In the documentary, Karishma is seen saying: “It was rehearsal, she was reading the scripts and he asked her to take off her top and her bra. She didn’t know what to do, she said ‘the filming hasn’t even begun yet and this is happening.’ She came home and cried.” She also added how traumatised Jiah was about the fact that Sajid would sue him if she walked out breaking the contract and also being sexually abused if she decided to stay in the same.
Karishma also revealed that Sajid had made sexual advances towards the actor but she stopped it by defending herself. Among many, actor Kangana Ranaut shared a short clipping of the documentary on social media and wrote: “They killed Jiah they killed Sushant and they tried to kill me, but they roam free have full support of the mafia, growing stronger and successful every year. Know the world is not ideal you are either the prey or the predator. No one will save you you have to save yourself.”
