The survivor accused him of forcibly physically harassing and also fat-shaming her
Mumbai: As the #MeToo movement gains momentum, another name in Bollywood bites the dust. This time Housefull filmmaker Sajid Khan has been accused of sexual misconduct by a journalist on Twitter.
The survivor shared her #MeToo story from almost a decade ago saying, "He forced his tongue down my throat. I pushed him away and ran out. I cried all the way on the train from Vile Parle to VT. I got back to my office and wrote his interview because that was my job."
However, this is not the only allegation against the director. Actor Saloni Chopra also spoke up and listed Khan along with Zain Durrani and Vikas Bahl in her account.
Chopra revealed graphic details about Sajid asking her inappropriate questions and sexual harassment in a blog. She wrote, "I’m sure he’s done this to so many other girls, I just want them to know they’re not alone. It’s been 7 years, and it’s about time I said it out loud.
I finally decided to share my story with you. Writing this was like re-living all that horrible past I’d chosen to let go of, but I knew if I don’t today, I may never. So here’s #metoo #MetooIndia https://t.co/brouTYIBC7— Saloni Chopra (@redheadchopra) October 11, 2018
The director is yet to respond to these allegations.
