Back in 2018, when the ‘Me Too’ movement took the Bollywood industry by rage, several women came out and accused filmmaker Sajid Khan of sexual misconduct. He was accused of sexually harassing actresses Priyanka Bose, assistant director Saloni Chopra and Paula, an Indian model, along with several other women.
Now, in a shocking revelation, late actor Jiah Khan’s sister has alleged that Sajid had harassed Jiah too. In a three-part docu-series on the late actress, her sister Karishma Khan alleged that Sajid sexually assaulted her elder sister. In a small clip, which has been shared on several social media pages, Jiah’s sister is heard saying that the late actor was asked to remove her top by Sajid during a script reading session.
In the video, Jiah’s sister said,
“When she was asked by Sajid Khan to take her top off, she came home and cried. She said, ‘It was a rehearsal, she was reading the scripts and he asked her to take off her top and stay in her bra. She didn’t know what to do, she said ‘the filming hasn’t even begun yet and this is happening.’ She came home and cried.”

“I have a contract, and if I leave, he’ll sue me and slander my name and if I stay then I’ll be sexually harassed, it is a lose-lose situation.’ So, she did do the film.”
She also claimed that when she had accompanied Jiah to Sajid’s house, he had made some extremely inappropriate remarks about her. She was around 16 years old back then. Actor Kangana Ranaut retweeted a clip from the documentary and once again criticized the ‘Bollywood mafia’.
They killed Jiah they killed Sushant and they tried to kill me, but they roam free have full support of the mafia, growing stronger and successful every year. Know the world is not ideal you are either the prey or the predator. No one will save you you have to save yourself. https://t.co/7QwHAr9BBv

For the uninitiated, Jiah Khan allegedly died by suicide at her Juhu residence in Mumbai back in 2013. We hope justice is served soon.
