Filmmaker Sajid Khan has become the latest name to be called out in the ongoing #MeToo movement that has taken the country by storm. Several women have come out and spoken up about sexual harassment ordeals they have had to deal with. Several from the film industry have been named and shamed on allegations of sexual harassment, including Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath, Gaurang Doshi and Subhash Ghai among other.
Now, a journalist took to Twitter and gave a first hand account of the harassment she faced by Sajid Khan, during an ongoing interview. In her post, she narrated the details of the day, which left her humiliated. She wrote, "The first time I interviewed Sajid Khan in the early 2000s, he called me to his house he shared with his sister. Thru the interview he talked about how large his p**** is & how he knew how to satisfy a woman. I ignored his trash talk & got back on track w/ my interview. He walked out of the room to show me some DVD from his collection. When he returned, his p**** was out. I got up to leave immediately only to find him blocking the way out. And, he forced his tongue down my throat. I pushed him away and ran out. I cried all the way in the train from Vile Parle to VT. I got back to my office and wrote his interview because that was my job."
Mentioning another instance, where the 'Housefull' director misbehaved with her , she wrote, "A few years later, I had to work with Sajid when I was at MTV. Initially, I wanted to find a way to not work on that show. Then I realised, why should I let go of an opportunity because a man can't keep his d*** in his pants. At the end of the first meeting, I forewarned him about behaving himself. I'll never forget what he said to me "You are fatter than you used to be. I won't touch you with a barge pole." And then he laughed.”
The #MeToo movement ignited in India with former Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta accusing Nana Patekar of sexual harassment on the sets of the 2008 film 'Horn Ok Pleasss'. she alleged that she was misbehaved with and forced to do intimate dance steps with the actor.
