#MeToo: Housefull 4 director’s ugly side to sexual harassment

#MeToo campaign in Bollywood is revealing many ugly faces of people related to the film industry be it producer-director or even Actors.

After Tanushree and Nana Patekar’s controversy has stormed Bollywood, House full Housefull 4 actor Sajid Khan has now been accused of sexual misconduct by more than one woman.

Sajid Khan’s assistant Saloni Chopra took to Instagram to share her harassment experience that took place in 2011 when she interviewed for Sajid Khan’s assistant director’s position.

Revealing the interview facts she went through, Saloni said Sajid had then questioned her how she would feel if she was sexually abused at some point or what her opinion was about sex and having get breast job done.

She says though she broke down after the interview, she did get the job, but when she actually started working for him, he clearly said her that she was not an assistant director but was a ‘director’s assistant’.

Sajid used to call at odd hours would ask questions liked what is she wearing or what us she eating, or even send her pictures wearing bikinis as he wanted to check her how she would look if she were to become an actress

Salon says she faced repeated harassment and Sajid Khan always commented that she lacked that oomph factor that makes actress desirable.

He used to bad mouth his then-girlfriend and even asked Saloni to touch him down there.

Narrating another incident, she says once he even asked her to lift the skirt of the girl playing a role in his movie, he would many times insult her and comment that she lacks the basic so-called statistics required to become an actress.

There was also a time when she agreed to let Sajid have his way when he asked her to come and stay with him. But when she asked if sex is all that he wants and would stop at once after doing so, Sajid yelled at her saying she was stupid to think of it as just one time and wanted her to be his little woman who does anything and everything he asks her of.

Unable to take the trauma she even pleaded to tell her what exactly is that he wanted from him.

“He said he wants me to do everything he tells me to. Stay with him. Maybe he’ll ask me to touch myself in front of him, maybe he’ll want to record it. He’ll do things to me and give me orgasm and teach me the art of sex but maybe he won’t actually put his dick inside me. Maybe he will. But it would be up to him what he wanted and if I thought casting couch was just about one time sex then I was foolish. No one would cast me unless I was ready to be their ‘keep’, Saloni writes on Instagram.

She recalls how petrified she was whenever Sajid would call her for work.

Even a journalist issued a statement where she was called to Sajid’s house for an ‘interview’ where he only talked about his penis, flashed it and forced his tongue down her throat. Here’s her full statement:

Ungli actress Rachel White also came forward supporting Saloni Chopra. Narrating her harassment experiences she said, when she was called for the audition of Humshakals, Sajid only asked about boobs and then told her to strip in his house.

I said I was not comfortable meeting at home and to that he said “don’t worry I live with my mom and she’ll be around” I felt reassured and agreed. When I went to his house the maid directed me to his room and the drawing room was empty!! It was his bedroom
