He then, further went on to insult her that he couldn't get a boner with her because she was that unattractive, while touching his genitals again. Incidentally, he is the brother of another famous director, Farah Khan. She writes that he started calling her at odd hours and asked what she was wearing or what she ate.

After she had joined the job regardless, Sajid Khan told her that more than an assistant director, she was HIS assistant. She mentions how he would say frightful things about his then girlfriend. He wrote, "I can not adequately stress how shocked, disappointed and heartbroken I am to read the stories about Sajid's behaviour".

When the harassment continued for months, on one night Sajid Khan asked her to come to stay at his house. She pushed him and ran out crying. Sajid yelled at her and told her that she was stupid if she thought it was only about sex. "After that he asks me to strip for him bcoz there were scenes in a bikini and he needed to see how I looked". No one would cast me unless I was ready to be their "keep", Saloni writes on Instagram.

Khan has not yet responded to the allegations against him. Saloni concluded her statement writing that, it was the last straw and she had enough, she threw the laptop and left the workstation.

It did not end there. Later, he stood in front of her with his penis out and blocked her way.

And Trump has threatened to veto a bill funding the Homeland Security Department and other parts of the government without it. It took most of President Barack Obama's first term for a Democratic Senate to confirm a similar number of appellate judges.

Former actor, author and Akshay Kumar's wife, Twinkle Khanna too expressed support for the two women who came forward against Khan.

For the first time in his 28-year old career, Akshay Kumar cancelled a film shoot and it was indeed a fearless decision on his part given the fact that a lot of money as well as hard-work of crew members has gone into shooting the film so far.

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.

Housefull 4 has popular Telugu heroines like Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde in the leads alongside Akshay Kumar and Ritesh Deshmukh.

Anyhow, Sajid himself cleared that he will not be directing till a judgement on him is passed.
