Sherlyn Chopra on Sajid Khan's sexual misconduct: "How film industry supports serial offenders like him"
Sherlyn Chopra now demands a public apology from Sajid Khan. She also asked how Bollywood celebrities continue to work with him, even after knowing his controversial past
Last week, BBC released three-part docuseries video on late actress Jiah Khan titled 'Death In Bollywood'. The three-part series aired over three days in the UK.
In the video we saw of late actor Jiah Khan’s sister alleging that Bollywood director Sajid Khan sexually harassed Jiah, had gone viral on social media.
Sherlyn Chopra shared a series of tweets, where she accused Sajid Khan of sexual misconduct and revealed how the director showed his privates at her and asked her to touch it.
Now, Chopra has demanded a public apology from Sajid Khan. In an interview with IANS, Sherlyn was asked will she take a legal action to which she said, that she wants him to apologize publicly, “I just want him to issue a public apology not just to me but to all those women with whom he has tried to indulge in inappropriate acts. He has been a habitual offender where he asks women to come to his home for discussion about work and then he gets into his shameless acts."
Sherlyn shared her experience and wrote on Twitter, "When I had met him in April 2005, a few days after my father's demise, he had taken his penis out of his pants and had asked me to feel it. I remember having told him that I know how a penis feels like & that the purpose of my meeting with him was not to feel or rate his penis.. (sic)".
Talking about the incident to the news agency, she said, “When I went to meet him, he randomly asked me to touch his private parts. I told him that it's not right and I left his place. I was terrified by that incident and all these years, I was blaming myself, thinking that I shouldn't have gone there to meet"
She also added despite knowing Sajid Khan's controversial background, why still the film industry supports him, "I don't understand how serial offenders like him get support from the film industry. I don't understand why they (film industry) don't raise their voice against such shameless activities," she said.
