While the world was just reeling from the shock of knowing Subhash Ghai been accused of drugging and raping an upcoming actress, three women have claimed sexual harassment at the hands of director-producer, Sajid Khan.

Journalist Karishma Upadhyay had shared her harrowing story on Twitter, in which she had given details of her experiences when she had gone to interview Sajid Khan in 2000s.

In a move that came as a complete shocker and also an eye-opener to the film fraternity, Superstar Akshay Kumar has made a decision to cancel the shooting of his upcoming film "Housefull 4". She wrote, "Throughout the interview, he talked about how large his p***s is and how he knew to satisfy a woman". Besides Nana Patekar, she has also named some alleged Maharashtra Navnirman Sena workers who tried to attack her and damaged her vehicle last week. "(Though) never ever did the same with me", she said. She took to Twitter to share an incident that roots back to the early 2000's when Sajid sexually molested her at his home. This meant she would have to work under him directly.

Choreographer-director Farah Khan says she and her family are heartbroken with sexual misconduct allegations against her brother, director Sajid Khan.

When she finally confronted him and asked what he wanted from her, he said he wants to make her his b****, writes Saloni.
