Director Sajid Khan Accused of Sexual Harassment by Two Women

MeToo Movement Actor Saloni Chopra and journalist Karishma Upadhyay accuse Sajid Khan of sexual misconduct

Saloni Chopra in her blog has said there was one night when she became exhausted of his (Sajid) calls and harassment.

Rachel recalls that she was sent by her agency to meet Sajid Khan during Humshakals and that she got a call within 5 minutes of her having being informed about the meeting, she got a call from Sajid who told her that the meeting would take place at his Juhu house. In an interview with Medium.com, she also explained how she was not as assistant director but the director's assistant.

During her interview with Sajid, he asked her if she would be comfortable getting a breast job done.

He started yelling at me and claimed that I was so naive and stupid if I thought this was just about sex. He was famous for his interview questions. She said that one day things really became ugly when she got petrified, disgusted with Sajid Khan's behaviour and decided not to work with him anymore. I was so scared around the people I worked with.

Nicklaus, Tiger, so many Hall of Famers, that's what you want growing up, that's what you dream of", Koepka said. He missed the first major of the year but still managed to win two of the last three majors of the year.

She got the job. I wasn't even good enough to be an actress so how could he ever cast me. I didn't have it in me, I didn't have the "oomph" factor. She narrated, "We didn't talk about anything else, up until he pointed at the way I sat and snapped at me". 'Spread your legs when you sit!' I said I didn't want to. I was so exhausted of his behaviour that even my fear of him wasn't enough to shut me up. Initially, I wanted to find a way to not work on that show. "I have known about her plight for a while now and wanted it to get out for the world to know", says filmmaker and friend Onir. I don't even remember the first time he ever hit me. He'd gloat about how he made her who she is today, and he could train me too. Then he'd go onto describe their sex life in ways I didn't need to know, and also remind me about his one vagina problem.

He'd talk about his dick and how big it apparently is and his sexual needs. He then said 'you think I want to fuck you? She pushed him and ran out crying. She would be furthermore humiliated by him with comments on her breast and ass being non-existent for her to be an actress. While talking the worse about his then-girlfriend, she alleged that Sajid would touch his genitals and ask her to touch them. He could print a contract right now and make me sign it, but I just didn't have it in me.

Read her full story here. She also revealed shocking details about how Zain Durrani and Vikas Bahl sexually harassed her over the years. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, a lot of victims/ survivors have come out in open to name sexual harassers.
