It is known that the #MeToo movement has gone viral in India. with influential Bollywood celebrities like Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Subhash Ghai and Rajat Kapoor under the scanner. Now, actress Saloni Chopra shocking comments on filmmaker Sajid Khan.
Saloni Chopra, who assisted Sajid Khan in 2011, called it “the most horrible experience of my life”. The indecent was started with the interview itself, he is asking questions like, “Do you [email protected]?” and “How many times a week?”
After she landed the job, she was told by Sajid Khan that she was a “director’s assistant” and not an “assistant director”, which meant that she would have to do his work directly. He started calling Saloni at odd hours, but it was not related to work. He also asked for her bikin! photos because he apparently “needed to know how I looked if I wanted to become an actor”.
Months of mental torture continued. Sajid Khan would tell Saloni Chopra how she was not “$exy enough to be an actress”. He offered to take Saloni under his wing and prepare her for Bollywood. Sajid even said that he would cast her in his next film if she was ready for it. “A part of me wanted it so bad that I kept working for Sajid, and excusing his behavior whenever I could,” she adds.
“He’d say horrible, horrible things about his girlfriend at the time, who also happened to be one of the kindest, nicest women I’d ever met in the industry. I wondered why she was with a man like that,” She wrote, adding that Sajid Khan would “describe their $ex life in ways I didn’t need to know” and talk about his peni$ size and describe his $exual needs. “He would ask me to touch his d!ck and get irritated with me when I said I didn’t want to,” she said.
“This time, during a costume trial for a character in the film he came in to see the girl in the outfit and asked her to lift her skirt and show her as$ to him, she looked at me confused and I asked Sajid Khan if it was necessary. She lifted her skirt and he started insulting and telling her she didn’t have any [email protected] or any as$, how did she think she’d become an actress? Then he asked me to leave the room and let them talk, and I did,” Saloni Chopra wrote.
Sajid Khan would keep inviting Saloni Chopra to his house, which she would avoid somehow. “One night, it got really ugly. I was so tired of the calls and the constant harassment, I asked him what he wanted from me. I told him that if this was just about $ex then fine, I’d come over right now and fu*k him but provided he backed off afterward and stopped calling me every day,” she adds.Follow @THEPANIPURI
