BOLLYWOOD: After Bipasha Basu, another Bollywood actress Dia Mirza has criticised Sajid Khan over his sexual harassment allegations, saying that she isn’t surprised over the allegations against him as he is ‘obnoxious and extremely sexist’.
“I was deeply disturbed. I agree that Sajid was obnoxious, extremely sexist and ridiculous. Even for me, the details of these accounts are beyond shocking. I have personally always have had a radar for such people. I have never invested in a relationship with such people even in the workplace,” Dia actor told India Today.
She further said, “It’s a deeply bewildering time for a lot of people. I don’t think anyone saw it coming. It is shameful that we didn’t see it coming. Most are silent mainly because of the relationship that they share with these people.”
Earlier, Bipasha condemned Sajid for indecent behavior towards women. She also revealed how she distanced herself from ‘Humshakals’ owing to Sajid’s obnoxious behaviour towards women on his film’s sets.
Not just Dia, but even Farah Khan (Sajid’s sister and director) came out in support of the victims. Farhan Akhtar, Sajid’s cousin and actor/filmmaker, too strongly condemned this act and disassociated himself with Sajid. He denied knowing of Sajid’s dealings in the past.
