She pushed him and ran out crying. Later, he stood in front of her with his penis out and blocked her way.

Actress Saloni Chopra, wrote her story with a blog link and said that the incident dates back to 2011, when she wanted to assist a director & learn more about filmmaking. She described how he asked her uncomfortable questions during an interview like "do you masturbate" and "how many times" After she shared her ordeal with Medium.com, here is another actress who accused Sajid of the similar misbehaviour. When she used to ignore his calls, Sajid would have got irritated.

Saloni Chopra in her blog has said there was one night when she became exhausted of his (Sajid) calls and harassment. She would be furthermore humiliated by him with comments on her breast and ass being non-existent for her to be an actress. On Thursday, actress Rachel White alleged through her Twitter account that Khan had told her that if she could "seduce him in 5 mins", she would get a role in his next film.

"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.
