The controversy around Sajid Khan’s participation in Bigg Boss 16 is growing bigger and bigger with every passing day. A big part of the internet was not already disappointed with Sajid Khan’s participation in Bigg Boss, and now various other celebrities and VIPs have also jumped into the dirty mud.
Recently Bhojpuri actress Rani Chatterjee talked about the director and accused her of casting couch. She revealed that the director asked her inappropriate and personal questions that made her extremely uncomfortable. Not only this, but she also narrated the incident when Sajid Khan asked her to raise her skirt and show him her legs.
In an interview with Aaj Tak, Rani Chatterjee opened up about her casting couch experience with Sajid Khan.
She stated, “I got in contact with Sajid’s team during the shoot of Himmatwala. He had himself called me and told me that the director wants to get in touch with me. Then he later told me, you come to my house and the meeting could be held there. He also instructed me to come alone and not bring any manager or PR since it was a formal meeting.”
She also went on to add that she believed Sajid Khan as he was a big Bollywod director. She said, “Since he’s such a huge director in Bollywood, I listened to him. I went to his Juhu house where he was alone. He initially told me that he was casting me for the ‘Dhoka Dhoka’ item song. He told me that I will have to wear a short lehenga and asked me to show him my legs. Since I was wearing a long skirt, I had to lift it up till my knees assuming maybe that is the process.”
Rani Chatterjee then also narrated the incident when Sajid Khan directly asked her inappropriate questions like the size of her breast and how often she gets intimate. She quoted, “I got scared when he asked me to tell him about my breast size. Don’t be shy, do you have a boyfriend or not? How often do you have s*x? I got really uncomfortable and asked him ‘what is all this conversation?’ He thought I would do him a favour but I immediately left. He even tried to touch me inappropriately.”
Earlier, television actress Kanishka Soni also accused Sajid Khan of harassing her. She revealed the director asked her to raise her top as he wanted to see her stomach.
The internet is reacting angrily to the latest accusations against Sajid Khan. Notable is the fact that Khan was a major accused in the viral #MeToo movement. He was even banned from the entertainment industry for a year.
For now, we don’t have any statements by the director on the latest controversial accusation against him. No one from his team has also reacted or made comment on the same.
