Bollywood’s tales of Me Too are getting murkier by the day. While the world was just reeling from the shock of knowing Subhash Ghai been accused of drugging and raping an upcoming actress, three women have claimed sexual harassment at the hands of director-producer, Sajid Khan.
Only a while ago we told you that actress Saloni Chopra and journalist Karishma Upadhyay have accused Sajid Khan of allegedly harassing them. Saloni said that he flashed his private parts to her while Karishma said that he forcibly tried to kiss when she went to his place for an interview.
Later, Ungli actress Rachel White also come out to narrate her story involving Sajid Khan. She commented on Saloni’s tweet and said, “I believe you @redheadchopra I was sent by my agency then to meet Sajid Khan during Humshakals. 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”.
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 has also named Zain Durrani and Vikas Bahl in her medium post on sexual harassment. Starting with director Sajid Khan, Saloni Chopra said in 2011, when she just had moved to India and wanted to learn about film-making, she met the Housefull for a job interview. And in the interview, Sajid asked her questions like ‘do you masturbate?’ and ‘how many times a week?’… he also asked her if she’d ever been sexually abused and if she would do a breast job. At the end of the interview, she was in tears and realised that she was uncomfortable in front of him.
Later, when she started working as his assistant director, Sajid used ask her to send bikini photos and also talk about his tool all the time. After going through many horrible situations and circumstances, Saloni quit the job. She also said the filmmaker has targeted many girls and it’s time to speak about it.
Journalist Karishma Upadhyay also shared a story about her encounter with Sajid Khan and said that when she interviewed him in the early 2000s at his house, he talked about how large his penis is and how he knows how to satisfy women. Later, he stood in front of her with his penis out and blocked her way. She pushed him and ran out crying.
Well, seems like Tanushree Dutta has opened a can of worms after levelling sexual abuse allegations against Nana Patekar.
