Fresh #MeToo Charge Against Sajid Khan

BOLLYWOOD: 2018 saw the rise of the #MeToo movement in Bollywood which was inspired by a global campaign against sexual harassment. Director Sajid Khan was accused of sexual assault by a number of actresses and journalists. After two years, Indian model Dimple Paul has broken her silence and shared her ordeal on social media

A fresh charge of sexual harassment has once again put Bollywood actor-filmmaker Sajid Khan in the spotlight, making #ArrestSajidKhan trend on Twitter on Friday.

Dimple Paul, an Indian actress-model, on Wednesday sparked off the #MeToo controversy with her accusations about Sajid Khan who allegedly tried to touch her inappropriately and also asked her to strip for him.

She took to social media and posted a series of notes saying, “When #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 that I have been harassed by Sajid Khan at the age of 17.”
