Sajid Khan accused of sexual misconduct by more women

Director Sajid Khan has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women like actresses Rachel White (Ungli), Saloni Chopra (TV series Screwed Up), and journalist Karishma Upadhyay.

When the harassment continued for months, on one night Sajid Khan asked her to come to stay at his house. "This wasn't about sex, it was about me being his little bitch and doing everything he told me to do", she narrates.

Sajid's sister Farah Khan, also a filmmaker, described the entire episode as "heartbreaking". "It's been 7 years, and it's about time I said it out loud", Saloni wrote in her post.

When she pleaded and asked him what it is that he wanted from her, "he said he wants me to do everything he tells me to". One fan wrote, "I really like and appreciate your courage". Well, Miss Basu has shared her thoughts on this menace over Twitter and is aligned with thoughts of the others. Saloni concluded her statement writing that, it was the last straw and she had enough, she threw the laptop and left the workstation. He called subsequently only to keep threatening her. And, he forced his tongue down my throat.

After the allegations surfaced against him, Farhan Akhtar and Akshay Kumar slammed the behaviour and mentioned that action should be taken against him if he is found guilty.
