In the wake of the MeToo movement last year, Housefull director Sajid Khan was accused in the movement for sexual harassment. The filmmaker had to step down from the director’s seat from Housefull 4 that was being filmed during the moment. But earlier this morning, the filmmaker has been accused by an Indian model and actor named Paula of sexual harassment. The model has levelled accusations against Sajid for speaking ‘dirty’ to her and ‘trying to touch’ her.
Paula took to social media to explain why she kept quiet for so long, especially when Sajid was already called out during the MeToo movement last year. But she then further stated that “I can dare to tell that I have been harassed by Sajid Khan at the age of 17. He spoke dirty to me, he tried to touch me. He even told me to strip in front of him just to get a role in his upcoming Housefull movie.”
The filmmaker is now getting brutally slammed by netizens and have been trending ‘ArrestSajidKhan’ on Twitter. A social media user went on to write, “Its 4th time Sajid Khan has been accused of sexual harassment. But the police is busy in targetting #KanganaRanaut. How long will it take for him to get convicted?”
On the other hand, numerous social media users called out Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker, and Farhan Akhtar among other B-Town celebs for speaking about ‘squashing patriarchy’ during Rhea Chakraborty’s arrest. A social media user wrote, “Sajid Khan is @FarOutAkhtar’s cousin. Farhan is preaching smashing patriarchy on social media but keeps quiet over Sajid’s sexual perversion every time. Let’s not forget Sajid is a chronic repeat offender. Peak Bollywood hypocrisy on display…”
Once again, filmmaker Sajid Khan has been accused of harassing a model.
