The incident came to light after actor Saloni Chopra wrote a piece for a website titled Medium, claiming she was mentally and sexually harassed by Sajid while she was his assistant director.
The next time she went for shoot, she was petrified. "Right after my agency told me about the meeting Sajid called me within the next 5 mins and said the meeting would be at his house opp iskon Juhu".
Popular Bollywood director Sajid Khan, who also has several women accusing him of assault has taken the matter seriously and released a statement saying he will be stepping down as director of Housefull 4. But nothing of that sort happened with me.
When she said that her bikini shots were a part of her portfolio, he continued to insist. When she asked him what she wanted from him and if it was about sex, she was ready only if he'd back off after that. I got up to leave immediately only to find him blocking the way out.
In a third, freelance journalist Karishma Upadhyay piled upon the miseries of the director.
Global financial stability risks rising with trade tensions, International Monetary Fund says
But we need to do it (go to IMF) before our reforms start yielding results in about six months", Khan said. The Fund says the global economy's growth target has dropped by 2 percent from the initial 3.9 percent.
Sajid Khan's sister Farah Khan has responded to accusations of sexual harassment on the film-maker. She wrote, "Throughout the interview, he talked about how large his p***s is and how he knew to satisfy a woman".
"A few years later, I had to work with Sajid when I was at MTV".
Saloni Chopra further added that at times Sajid Khan would comment on how she lacked sexiness enough to give her that "Oomph" factor.
Sajid's cousin, Farhan Akhtar, too had reacted strongly stating that the revelation had left him "heartbroken" and shocked.' Farhan had tweeted, "I can not adequately stress how shocked, disappointed and heartbroken I am to read the stories about Sajid's behaviour. I will go for defamation certainly". (Though) never ever did the same with me. After Tanushree Dutta opened up about sexual misconduct by Nana Patekar, we saw many other actresses and models coming out in open with their #MeToo stories. Queen director Vikas Bahl has been accused by three women, including actor Kangana Ranaut of sexual harassment.
