Indian model Dimple Paul was just 17 years old when this incident happened to her. She penned a series of posts on her Instagram account speaking about the harassment she faced from Sajid.
She wrote,'When the #MeToo movement started, a lot of people spoke about Sajid Khan but I did not dare to because like every other actor who has no godfather and had to earn for a family I kept quiet. Now I don't have my parents with me. I'm earning for myself. I can dare to tell you that I have been harassed by Sajid Khan at the age of 17.'
She added, 'He spoke dirty to me. He tried to touch me. He even told me to strip in front of him just to get a role in his upcoming Housefull movie.'

2. Saloni Chopra:
Saloni, who was once Sajid's Assistant Director wrote a blog in which she shared how he tried to harass her which had a bad impact on her mental health.
She wrote, 'He would ask me to touch his dick and get irritated with me when I said I didn't want to. This one time, during a costume trial for a character in the movie he came in to see the girl in the outfit and asked her to lift her skirt and show her ass to him, she looked at me confused and I asked Sajid if it was necessary. She lifted her skirt and he started insulting her telling her she didn't have any breasts or any ass, how did she think she'd become an actress?'
3. Rachel White:
After Saloni Chopra, Rachel also raised her voice against her horrible experience of meeting the filmmaker for a role at his home.
"I was in a white vest and blue denims and still felt I was standing nude with that gaze. What happens next is that he finishes his cardio and walks up to me asking me about my boobs and making that kind of conversation. I didn't bother to answer anything," wrote Rachel.
"Finally he goes 'listen no one has a problem with these things' (and obviously named people) and that if I could seduce him in 5 mins the role was mine. How this ended was me saying that I didn't come mentally prepared for this and I left his house!" she added.
4. Aahana Kumra:
Aahana Kumra during an interview with a leading newspaper shared how Sajid made sexist jokes.
She said, "He wanted to chat with me. I told him my mom's a police officer which I think made him behave. But he still asked me bizarre questions like, 'Would you have sex with a dog if I gave you Rs 100 crore?'"
5. Mandana Karimi:
Actress Mandana Karimi revealed in an interview that Khan behaved inappropriately when she visited his office to discuss the role in the film 'Humshakals' in 2014.
'I was in talks for Sajid Khan's Humshakals at the casting stage. My manager and I visited his office. After meeting producer Vashu Bhagnani, I was in a room with Sajid, when he said, 'Lovely pictures but you need to remove your clothes. If I like what I see, you might get the part,'" said Mandana.
