Saloni Chopra Revealed Sajid Khan’s Sexual Harassment
It is known that the #MeToo movement has gone viral in India. with influential Bollywood celebrities like Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Vikas Bahl, Subhash Ghai and Rajat Kapoor under the scanner. Now, actress Saloni Chopra shocking comments on filmmaker Sajid Khan.
Saloni Chopra, who assisted Sajid Khan in 2011, called it “the most horrible experience of my life”. The indecent was started with the interview itself, he is asking questions like, “Do you masturb@te?” and “How many times a week?”
After she landed the job, she was told by Sajid Khan that she was a “director’s assistant” and not an “assistant director”, which meant that she would have to do his work directly. He started calling Saloni at odd hours, but it was not related to work. He also asked for her bikin! photos because he apparently “needed to know how I looked if I wanted to become an actor”.
Months of mental torture continued. Sajid Khan would tell Saloni Chopra how she was not “$exy enough to be an actress”. He offered to take Saloni under his wing and prepare her for Bollywood. Sajid even said that he would cast her in his next film if she was ready for it. “A part of me wanted it so bad that I kept working for Sajid, and excusing his behavior whenever I could,” she adds.
“He’d say horrible, horrible things about his girlfriend at the time, who also happened to be one of the kindest, nicest women I’d ever met in the industry. I wondered why she was with a man like that,” She wrote, adding that Sajid Khan would “describe their $ex life in ways I didn’t need to know” and talk about his peni$ size and describe his $exual needs. “He would ask me to touch his d!ck and get irritated with me when I said I didn’t want to,” she said.
“This time, during a costume trial for a character in the film he came in to see the girl in the outfit and asked her to lift her skirt and show her as$ to him, she looked at me confused and I asked Sajid Khan if it was necessary. She lifted her skirt and he started insulting and telling her she didn’t have any bre@sts or any as$, how did she think she’d become an actress? Then he asked me to leave the room and let them talk, and I did,” Saloni Chopra wrote.
Sajid Khan would keep inviting Saloni Chopra to his house, which she would avoid somehow. “One night, it got really ugly. I was so tired of the calls and the constant harassment, I asked him what he wanted from me. I told him that if this was just about $ex then fine, I’d come over right now and fu*k him but provided he backed off afterward and stopped calling me every day,” she adds.

However, Sajid Khan yelled at Saloni Chopra and told her that she was “naive and stupid” if she thought it was just about $ex. “This wasn’t about $ex, it was about me being his little b!tch and doing everything he told me to do,” she says. “He then said ‘you think I want to fu*k you? I have such a hot girlfriend, why would I fu*k a girl like you that’s not even $exy?'” she wrote.
When Saloni Chopra asked what exactly Sajid Khan wanted from her, he said that he wanted her to follow his every command. “Stay with him. Maybe he’ll ask me to touch myself in front of him, maybe he’ll want to record it. He’ll do things to me and give me org@sm and teach me the art of $ex but maybe he won’t actually put his d!ck inside me. Maybe he will. But it would be up to him what he wanted,” she revealed, adding that he told her that unless she was ready to be someone’s “keep”, no one would cast her.
Surprisingly, when a petrified Saloni Chopra reached the set next time, he acted as nothing had happened. Sajid asked her to write an article for some newspaper, and while she was in the middle of it, he snapped at her asking her to spread her legs when she sat. When she refused, he went into a rant about how “unattractive” she was, how there was “nothing $exy” about her and how she was not “good enough to be an actress”.
She said, “Sajid tried to grab my hand and put it on his d!ck to show me that I didn’t give him a boner. I shrugged it off and asked him to stop. He frantically started walking around the room telling me I was never going to have a future in this industry and no man would ever find me $exy and he should have a boner but he doesn’t, he doesn’t have a boner looking at me. And then, he pulled his pants down and showed me his d!ck as he kept yelling ‘see? You don’t even make me hard.”
Actress Saloni Chopra stormed out of the room and decided not to work for Sajid Khan anymore. “That night he called and told me to take a few days off, threatening to fire me. I said nothing to him. Then a few days later he called me up and asked me to come back to work again, and that’s when I told him I wouldn’t work for him anymore. He threatened to end my non existing career and throw me out of this industry, and once again, I was scared, but I knew if I kept working for him I’d probably kill myself because I couldn’t take the abuse every day, so I told him to end my career if that’s what he wanted to do, but I was done,” she added.
When Saloni Chopra discussed the incidents with people, they brushed it under the carpet and said, “That’s Sajid Khan for you, he’s pulled off this shit with so many girls”. She said, “It took me years to get over the trauma he put me through. I was so scared around the people I worked with. And I’m sure he’s done this to so many other girls, I just want them to know they’re not alone. It’s been 7 years, and it’s about time I said it out loud.”
