Filmmaker Sajid Khan has been accused of sexual harassment by several women. The director made headlines for all wrong reasons during the #Metoo movement in the country. This blotch on his character dates back to 2018 when he was accused by assistant director Sonali Chopra, actress Rachel White and a journalist of sexual misconduct.
Most recently, late actor Jiah Khan’s sister Karishma Khan disclosed in a show that Jiah was sexually abused by Sajid. Now, actor Sherlyn Chopra has come up with fresh #metoo charges against the filmmaker and said he had flashed his privates during a discussion about a film. “He exposed himself before me and asked me to touch his privates,” she alleged.
The actor took to her Twitter handle and revealed the gory details about Sajid in a series of tweets. Sherlyn shared the BBC clip, where Jiah Khan’s sister accused the director of sexual harassment, and wrote: “When I had met him in April 2005, a few days after my father’s demise, he had taken his penis out of his pants and had asked me to feel it. I remember having told him that I know how a penis feels like & that the purpose of my meeting with him was not to feel or rate his penis.”
She also added, “It’s not an accusation but the disclosure of a fact. Our phone records of the past may be checked regarding the same. After flashing his penis, he had not only asked me to touch it & feel it but also asked me if I had ever seen a penis as well endowed as his…” Her tweets also mentioned the ‘Bollywood mafia’ which supposedly has been backing Sajid and wrote, “He has the ‘superstars’ of Bollywood to vouch for his ‘character’. It’s my word against theirs. The Bollywood mafia is a strong syndicate.”
