Sajid Khan in Bigg Boss 16: From Sherlyn Chopra to Mandana Karimi, actors who accused the filmmaker of sexual harassment
The popular reality show on Indian television, Bigg Boss is back to entertain the audience with its 16th instalment. Hosted by Salman Khan, the show has a history of breaking TRP records with its controversial games. This year, Bollywood filmmaker Sajid Khan entered the show as a contestant.
While the audience is thrilled to see the filmmaker inside the house, a section of social media users is not at all happy with the makers for inviting him on the show due to his controversies in the past.
For those uninitiated, Sajid Khan has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple actors over the years. Here’s a look:
The model-actor recently gave a shocking revelation and accused Khan of forcing her to touch his private parts. Reports said Chopra alleged that she met him in April 2005 and he had taken his penis out of his pants and asked her to feel him.
Social media influencer and actor Saloni Chopra was the first public face who accused Sajid Khan of sexual misconduct. She had alleged that the filmmaker made her uncomfortable during an interview for his Assistant Director in 2011.
The actor accused Khan of making her uncomfortable by asking a bizarre question. Kumra said the filmmaker asked her if she would have sex with a dog for Rs 100 crore.
Model-actor Dimple Paul aka Paula accused Sajid Khan of harassing her at the age of 17 under the pretext of casting her in Housefull. Paula opened up about the incident in September 2020.
Former Bigg Boss contestant and Bollywood actor Mandana Karimi said Sajid Khan asked her to remove her clothes if she wants a better role. It should be noted that Karimi appeared in his film Humshakals.
