Sajid Khan harassed the model when she was a minor. Fucking disguisting. And this is the 4th time he did this.

Prior to this, during the 2018 #MeToo movement, the filmmaker had sexual harassment charges pressed against him by a former assistant director. Several other women from the film fraternity and even a journalist came forward and spoke about Sajid’s alleged sexual and inappropriate behaviour.
