The #Metoo movement started in 2018 and it seems like it is not over yet. Sajid Khan, one of the most known directors of the film industry was accused of sexual misconduct allegations in the #Metoo movement by a journalist and three members of the film industry.
Years after the movement, another allegation has been imposed on the director for sexual harassment. Indian model Paula spoke about her horrifying experience of meeting with Sajid Khan by writing it on her Instagram.
She wrote that “When #Metoo movement started a lot of people spoke about Sajid Khan. But I did not dare to because like every other actor who has no godfather and had to earn for the family, I kept quiet. Now I don’t have my parents with me. I am earning for myself. I can dare to tell that I have been harassed by Sajid Khan at the age of 17.”
She further elaborated that “He spoke dirty to me, he tried to touch me, and he even told me to strip in front of him just to get a role in his upcoming Housefull movie. God knows with how many girls he has done this. I’m coming out now not for any pity party. It’s just that I realized that it had affected me so bad when I was a child and chose not to speak.”
She added that such people should be kept behind bars not only for casting couch but also for manipulating and for stealing away the dreams.
She said that the only wrong she did was not to speak at that time.
