Actor and filmmaker, Sajid Khan has always grabbed the limelight for all the wrong reasons. In the wake of the ‘MeToo’ moment in India in the year 2018, many actresses namely Paula, Saloni Chopra, Rachel White, Aahana Kumar, and Mandana Karimi had charged Sajid Khan with sexual misconduct. The IFTDA imposed a ban on Sajid Khan from directing films but was revoked in 2019.
Sajid Khan is currently one of the participants in the controversial reality show, Bigg Boss 16 and many actresses have objected to his participation. They have questioned the makers of the show for allowing an alleged sexual predator in the show. And now, actress, Sheela Priya Sheth too claimed how she too had fallen prey to Sajid’s sexual misconduct.
In an interview with Jagran, Sheela Priya Sheth opened up about her horrifying experience with the filmmaker, Sajid Khan. Talking about their first meeting, Sheela said:
“I first met director Sajid Khan in the year 2008. When I requested him to cast me in his upcoming project, but because of some of his antics I was taken aback.”
In the same interview, Sheela revealed how she got upset with Sajid’s derogatory remarks as he told her that her breasts are not big enough for Bollywood. Elaborating on the disgusting comments by the director, Sheela stated:
“He kept looking at my private parts for about five minutes straight and said that 'you should get the surgery done as your breasts are not big enough for Bollywood'. He even said that I should use some oils to enlarge my breasts. And my breasts should be massaged daily, then only I will be able to get work in Bollywood.”
During the MeToo moment, many actresses called out Sajid Khan for his sexual misconduct. From flashing his private parts to asking actresses to send their nude pictures as a part of the casting process, many accusations have been laid against him. However, Sajid denied all the allegations against him and even stepped down as the director of Housefull 4 in 2019.
Sajid Khan has made an appearance on Bigg Boss 16 after a gap of 4 years.
