Ongoing #MeToo movement has taken India as well as Bollywood by storm, and Bollywood celebrities are under scanner. The latest name to be outed is filmmaker Sajid Khan. The Housefull franchise director had to step down from Houseful 4 direction role in the wake of strong and shady sexual harassment accusations by multiple actresses and journalists.

Model and actress Saloni Chopra accused Sajid Khan of Sexual harassment and abuse on a Medium blog this month.
“If I didn’t pick up I was told it didn’t matter to him if I was shitting or showering or having sex, when he called — I had to answer. I was petrified. The calls started coming at 12 am and 2 am. […] He’d ask me what I’m wearing or what I ate. He’d ask me to send him my bikini photos because he needed to know how I looked if I wanted to become an actor,” Saloni said.
Sajid apparently also spoke ill of his girlfriend at the time and would talk about the size of his penis. “He’d talk about his d*** and how big it apparently is and his sexual needs. He asked me to touch his d*** and get irritated with me when I said I didn’t want to,” Saloni wrote. Sajid also offered Saloni to stay at his house.
