Mumbai: Actor Pooja Bose has become the latest celebrity to have called out filmmaker Sajid Khan for his sexual misconduct. She accused Khan of misbehaving during an audition for a movie.
The actor alleged that the actor exposed himself during an audition saying that if he doesn't get a hard-on, she will be rejected from the movie. She told entertainment portal Miss Malini, "When I landed up with the required clothing (bikini), no sides were given. He walked in and lay down on the sofa. Over his trousers, he held his dick in his hand and said, "If I don't get a hard-on looking at you, how will my audience?"
The actor also told the portal that she was advised by her partner to quit the business after she narrated this account, however, she decided to plough through it. She said, "I will not let these experiences define me. I worked on myself, my outlook and mostly my craft. I had to experience the ‘dark' side of show business but I promised myself that, I will not let these monsters get in my way of living the life I desired. The black and white of this experience is that my life and my work, are my birthright."
Apart from Bose, several other female colleagues such as Mandana Karimi, Saloni Chopra, Rachel White, Simran Suri and journalist Karishma Upadhyay through the "Me Too" Movement in India.
