Rani Chatterjee exposes Sajid Khan
Rani says, “This time I am getting very angry seeing Bigg Boss. In particular, seeing Sajid Khan breaks my heart. When his real face came to the fore during MeToo, many people like us were relieved that there was someone who had courage. I was very happy to see the girls raising their voice. Seeing him in Bigg Boss makes my blood boil. I do not understand why Bigg Boss is busy cleaning up his image.”
Talking about the harassment that happened to her, Rani said, “I contacted Sajid’s team during the filming of Himmatwala. Sajid called me and said that he wanted to contact me directly. When we spoke on the phone, he suggested that you come to my house and we meet there.They also instructed that there is a formal meeting, do not come alone with any manager or PR.
Rani made these serious allegations against Sajid
Rani further said, “Bollywood has such a big director, so I accepted his point. When I reached his house in Juhu, he was alone at home. Sajid told me earlier that I was going to cast you for the item song Dhokha-Dhokha. In this, you have to wear a short lehenga. Show me your feet. I was wearing a long skirt, so he asked me to show my legs. I thought maybe this is how it happens. I showed my feet, till the knee. The actress said, “I was scared. Then they started saying, “Tell me your breast size. Don’t be shy with me. Do you have a boyfriend or not? How often do you have sex? When I didn’t hear all this, I got uncomfortable and said, “What kind of things are you talking about?” I am getting very uncomfortable. So they were also shocked and scared. He thought that I would favour him. I immediately left from there. He even tried to touch me in a dirty way.
Rani added, “When my contractor asked me about the song, I told him the reality of the meeting. He started saying, “Why didn’t you call?” I only told her that if I said something, I would not be taken seriously as a Bhojpuri actress. On the contrary, I will be proven wrong.Somewhere, my image in Bollywood should not get spoiled and I should not get work. Well, when the girls said during # MeToo, I was also able to feel that the same thing had happened to me. Now that I am seeing him in Bigg Boss, I feel that I should come forward and say this.
