Sajid Khan is a successful filmmaker of Bollywood. He has directed films like Heyy Babyy and Housefull. However, Sajid has often been named in harassment cases by different women over his career. Not one or two, but 8 women have made allegations of sexual harassment on Sajid Khan.
1- Sherlyn Chopra:
In Jan 2021, Sherlyn came out on Twitter and told, “When I had met him in April 2005, a few days after my father’s demise, he had taken his p**is out of his pants and had asked me to feel it. I remember having told him that I know how a p**is feels like & that the purpose of my meeting with him was not to feel or rate his p**is.”
2- Jiah Khan:
In a documentary titled Death in Bollywood, late actress Jiah Khan’s sister Karishma alleged that Sajid Khan sexually harassed the late actress. Karishma recalled that Sajid asked Jiah to take off her top and bra during a script reading session. Karishma said, “When Jiah was asked by Sajid Khan to take her top off, she came home and cried. She said, ‘I have a contract, so if I leave, they can sue me and slander my name. If I stay, then I am sexually harassed.’ It was a lose-lose situation.”
3- Mandana Karimi:
Actress Mandana Karimi, who rose to fame with Bigg Boss 9 once told that Sajid made inappropriate remarks when she visited his office to discuss a role in his 2014 film Humshakals. She recalled, “I was in a room with Sajid, when he said, ‘Lovely pictures but you need to remove your clothes. If I like what I see, you might get the part.”
4- Saloni Chopra:
Actor Saloni Chopra joined the Me Too Movement in 2018. She assisted Sajid in 2011 and called it the most awful experience of her life. He used to call her at odd hours and ask for her bikini photos. He also used to ask her indecent questions like if she pleases herself and how many times a week.
The other four women are actress Rachael White, Dimple Paul, Aahana Kumra and Simran Suri who had somewhat similar stories of harassment by Sajid Khan.
