There is no hiding from the fact that several actresses in the Indian film industry have been a victim of sexual harassment. Time and again, the actresses have spoken up against casting couch and harassment.
Now, Bollywood actress Sherlyn Chopra has opened up a shocking story, which has left people in awe. The 36-year-old actress revealed that Sajid Khan has always been disrespectful towards women.
Sherlyn is an avid social media user and time and again she hits up controversies with her comments and ventures but also enjoys a huge fan following worldwide. Taking to her Twitter handle, the actress has accused filmmaker Sajid Khan of sexual harassment, leaving the entire film fraternity and fans shocked.
In a tweet, Sherlyn recalled an incident from 2005, when she said that Sajid exposed his private parts to her. The actress added that it was a few days after she lost her father. Earlier, several other women have also made similar allegations against Sajid Khan.
In a tweet, Sherlyn Chopra revealed that in 2005 Sajid Khan exposed his private parts to her when she went to meet him for a role in his film. She wrote, “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 (sic).”
Sherlyn was responding to a news story about a similar allegation made by the late Jiah Khan’s sister.
Responding to a Twitter user’s question about why she chose to never disclose this, Sherlyn added, “He has the ‘superstars’ of Bollywood to vouch for his ‘character’. It’s my word against theirs. The Bollywood mafia is a strong syndicate.”
She continued, “After flashing his p**is, he had not only asked me to touch it & feel it but also asked me if I had ever seen a p**is as well endowed as his.”
Notably, Sajid Khan’s name has also emerged during the #MeToo movement in the year 2018. The ‘Housefull’ franchise director was accused by model and actor Saloni Chopra of sexual harassment and abuse.
He was suspended from the Indian Film & Television Directors’ Association for one year. He was directing Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 4 during that time and had to leave the film midway. Director Farhad Samji then took over.
