Another MeToo allegation against director Sajid Khan surfaced on Tuesday as actor Sherlyn Chopra accused him of flashing her. The actor alleged that the Housefull director exposed himself before her and asked her to touch his private part. The actress added that it was a few days after she lost her father. Earlier, several other women have also made similar complaints against Sajid.
On Tuesday, Chopra took to Twitter and shared an interview from 2019 where she narrated her ordeal. The actor said that some people tried to mislead her and added that she was harassed by several people.
As per Sherlyn, the incident took place in 2005.
When I had met him in April 2005, a few days after my fathers demise, he had taken his penis out of his pants and had asked me to feel it. I remember having told him that I know how a penis feels like & that the purpose of my meeting with him was not to feel or rate his penis.. https://t.co/2gnGSdEIrU
Sherlyn later also responded to a Twitter user who asked why she never chose to disclose it. She said, "He has the 'superstars' of Bollywood to vouch for his 'character'. It’s my word against theirs. The Bollywood mafia is a strong syndicate."

The allegations made by Sherlyn surfaced soon after late actor Jiah Khan's sister accused Sajid Khan of harassing her. As per Karishma, the director asked Jiah Khan to take off her clothes during a film rehearsal.
After several women made allegations of sexual misconduct against Sajid Khan, he was suspended from the Indian Film & Television Directors' Association for one year. He was directing Akshay Kumar's Housefull 4 during that time and had to leave the film mid way. Director Farhad Samji then took over.
In 2019, rumours of Sajid planning a return to filmmaking with a John Abraham-starrer began doing the rounds.
