"I said I was not comfortable meeting at home and to that he said "don't worry I live with my mom and she'll be around" I felt reassured and agreed". What happens next is that he finishes his cardio and walks up to me asking me about my b**bs and making that kind of conversation. If I didn't pick up I was told it didn't matter to him if I was shitting or showering or having sex, when he called - I had to answer. Like Ms Chopra and Ms White, Ms Upadhyay also claimed that Sajid Khan started with "trash talk" and added he tried to forcibly kiss her. Later he briefly met the media and said: "My lawyer has asked me to not talk to any channel, have to listen to him".

Director of hit films like "Housefull" and "Heyy Baby", Sajid Khan was earlier accused of sexual misconduct in a chilling post shared by his former assistant director Saloni Chopra.
