There is currently a heated discussion. It concerns whether Sajid Khan should have participated in Bigg Boss 16. He is accused of s*xual misbehavior by numerous young actresses. Since Sajid Khan, a “Me Too” accused, joined the show, internet users are also criticizing the show. Many users of various social media sites have expressed their desire for Sajid Khan to be removed from the show. They said he shouldn’t be given a chance to establish a name for himself.
Mandana Karimi’s Experience With Sajid Khan
Mandana Karimi had a role in the film Humshakals. Sajid Khan afterward urged her to strip for him at that point. The actress spoke with India Today about her experience. She claimed she was involved in casting discussions for Sajid Khan’s Humshakals. She went to his office with her manager. Mandana was with Sajid in a room after meeting Vashu Bhagnani. Then he said that although her photos were beautiful, she should take her clothes off. In addition, he said that she would only land the role if he approved of what he saw. The actress recently expressed dissatisfaction with the Bigg Boss 16 producers for selecting Sajid Khan as a competitor. She resigned from Bollywood due to the lack of respect for women in the field.
Actress Aahana Kumra from Lipstick Under My Burkha also spoke openly about her experience with Sajid Khan. Aahana’s interaction with Sajid was rather peculiar. Aahana disclosed that she did audition at Sajid’s house. She further added that despite hearing negative things about him, she still went there. Sajid invited her to his dark room, explaining that his mother was in the adjacent room and he didn’t want to disturb her. “He wanted to chat with me. I told him my mom’s a police officer, which I think made him behave. But he still asked me bizarre questions like, ‘Would you have s*x with a dog if I gave you Rs 100 crore?” she had told India Today.
Sherlyn Chopra’s Experience With Sajid Khan
Sherlyn Chopra’s experience was even worse. When the actress first met the director, she was still dealing with her father’s death. In April 2005, they first spoke. She added that Sajid urged her to feel his penis after pulling it out of his pants. She also tweeted in 2021 that she recalled telling him she understood what a p*nis feels like. Sherlyn went on to tell him she had not met him to feel or rate his penis. Sherlyn took this to Twitter and said, “It’s High Time That Salman Khan Takes A Stand.”
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.. https://t.co/2gnGSdEIrU

Khuda Haafiz actress Simran Suri also spoke soon after Rachel White recalled her casting couch experience with Sajid Khan. She tweeted, “I kept thinking all these years @whitespeaking to talk about this a## @SimplySajidK and what stopped me was that nobody would listen. He did the same with me while he was casting for Himmatwala. Called me to his juju house and asked me to strip.” Furthermore, she added that Sajid had pulled her top off. He told her to be quiet when she objected, as his mother was in the next room. Simran deleted his number and left his house soon after. She abused him when the director called her once again.

In this incident, Jiah Khan’s sister Karishma spoke with BBC for the documentary ‘Death In Bollywood.’ According to Karishma, Sajid asked Jiah to remove her bra during a script reading session. It was a rehearsal going on where she was reading the scripts. He then asked her to take off her top and her bra. She didn’t know what to do and just said that the filming hadn’t even begun yet and this was happening. Additionally, Karishma also revealed how Jiah came home and was crying.
Sajid Khan is famous for making weird filmmaking decisions. However, he is also famous for being one of the most popular accuse among the casting-couch violators.
