Sajid Khan Controversies

Since October 2018, in the aftermath of India’s MeToo movement, Sajid has been accused of sexual harassment by several female colleagues. Mandana Karimi, Saloni Chopra, Rachel White, Simran Suri, Marina Kuwar, Aahana Kumra, Dimple Paula, Sherlyn Chopra, and journalist Karishma Upadhyay are among the women who have accused Khan of sexual harassment. In addition, death in Bollywood (2021), a BBC television documentary about the suicide of Indian actress Jiah Khan, also included accusations of harassment against Khan by Jiah’s sister Karishma Khan. In light of the allegations, the Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association barred Khan from directing films.

It was later revoked a year later, on December 10, 2019. Despite his denials, Khan stepped down as director of Housefull 4 and was eventually replaced by Farhad Samji, co-director of Housefull 3.

What Happened To Sajid Khan?

As per freepressjournal.in, Between 2018 and 2020, several women, including big names in the film industry, accused Sajid of inappropriately touching them, asking them to strip for roles in his films, and physically and mentally harassing them.

Saloni Chopra, who worked with Sajid in 2011, claimed in 2018 that the filmmaker had asked her if she masturbates and “how many times a day.” She said he would even call her at odd hours, and it stopped when she completely distanced herself from him.

She wrote, “He would ask me to touch his d*ck and get irritated with me when I said I didn’t want to. This one time, during a costume trial for a character in the movie, he came in to see the girl in the outfit and asked her to lift her skirt and show her ass to him, she looked at me, confused, and I asked Sajid if it was necessary. She lifted her skirt, and he started insulting her telling her she didn’t have any breasts or any ass; how did she think she’d become an actress?”

Actress Rachel White, who starred in the film ‘Ungli,’ revealed that the filmmaker once asked her to “seduce him in 5 minutes” to get a part in a film.

Simran Suri, an aspiring actress, claimed that Sajid wanted to cast her in ‘Himmatwala,’ for which he summoned her to his home. When she refused, he asked her to strip and tried to pull her top off. “He yelled, ‘I am a director; I will have to see your body,'” Simran explained.

According to Upadhyay, Sajid allegedly flashed at journalist Karishma Upadhyay during an interview and “forced his tongue down her throat” before she could push him and run away.

Sajid asked actress Aahana Kumra in an interview with a leading publication, “Would you have sex with a dog if I gave you Rs 100 crore?”

Then, actress Mandana Karimi revealed that during a casting meeting at his home, Sajid asked her to “take off her clothes” and told her that if he liked what he saw, she would get a role in ‘Humshakals.’

Jiah Khan’s sister Karishma claimed in the documentary ‘Death in Bollywood’ that Sajid had asked the late actress to “take off top and bra” during a script reading session. Karishma stated: “She came home crying. ‘I have a contract, so if I leave, they can sue me and slander my name,’ she explained. If I stay, I will be sexually harassed.'”

While Sajid never addressed any of the allegations against him, he remained out of the public eye for a long time, until recently, when he announced his return to filmmaking with the film 100%.’

Why Sajid In Bigg Boss?

Sajid’s sexual assault allegations include flashing his private parts at parties, asking female actors to send him nude pictures as part of the casting process, watching porn in front of women, and so on.

During the Bigg Boss 16 premiere on Saturday, Sajid spoke about how his work suffered after the allegations. He told host Salman Khan, “I did not have much work; I have been at home for the past four years.
