Karishma also recalls the time when Sajid allegedly made advances towards her but was stopped by Jiah Khan who jumped to her defense.
Sajid Khan has been making headlines for the past few years but for all the wrong reasons. The filmmaker came to bad limelight when several women came out and accused him of sexual harassment during the #MeToo wave in the country. He also had to step down as the director of Housefull 4 because of the same. Now, the latest to accuse the filmmaker on similar grounds is Jiah Khan’s sister Karishma who talked about it in a documentary.
This documentary by BBC has been titled ‘Death in Bollywood’ and it is here that Karishma alleged Sajid Khan had sexually harassed her sister Jiah who died in 2013. Although everyone knows that the actress died by suicide, her sister stated made some more revelations which are nothing less than shocking. For the unversed, this three-part docuseries has been released only in the UK and is based on the life of the late actress. It was in its second episode that her sister made these allegations.
Talking about the same, Karishma quotes, “It was a rehearsal, she was reading the scripts and he asked her to take off her top and her bra. She didn’t know what to do, she said ‘the filming hasn’t even begun yet and this is happening.’ She came home and cried.” She also reveals how scared Jiah was about Sajid suing her if she breaches the contract and getting sexually harassed by him if she stays in the same.
Karishma also recalls the time when Sajid allegedly made advances towards her but was stopped by Jiah Khan who jumped to her defence. Kangana Ranaut is among many who have now shared the short clipping of Jiah’s sister speaking about the same on social media. Speaking of it, the actress writes on Twitter, “They killed Jiah they killed Sushant and they tried to kill me, but they roam free to have the full support of the mafia, growing stronger and successful every year. Know the world is not ideal you are either the prey or the predator. No one will save you you have to save yourself.”
