Sajid Khan cracked lewd jokes, was rude to all women: Bipasha Basu


Bipasha Basu, who worked with Sajid Khan in ‘Humshakals’ said that she never faced sexual harassment at the hands of the director but overall, he was very rude to the women. Bipasha and Sajid Khan had a fall-out during the shooting of ‘Humshakals’.

Bipasha said, “I am glad that women are speaking up about the atrocities of these men with power and clout... But nothing of that sort happened with me... It was just his general attitude towards women that would disturb me on set- he cracked lewd jokes openly and was pretty rude to all girls .

“I was told by all not to say anything to him and stoop to his level, so I quietly finished my work as a professional and explained my stance to the producers, that I couldn’t associate myself with this film anymore as I could lose my temper any moment,” she posted on Twitter. 

Bipasha and Sajid had a clash during the making of 'Humshakals' and the actor even did not promote the film. 

In another tweet, Bipasha praised Tanushree Dutta for showing courage and initiating the #MeToo movement in India, “Kudos to #tanushreedutta... Because of her so many women have the courage to speak out against these men who take advantage of women... Owing to their fame, power and clout,” she wrote.

Post the allegation, Sajid Khan stepped down as the director of 'Housefull 4'. He tweeted,“I’ve just landed back in the country last night and reading all the news has been very disturbing. I’ve requested the producers of Housefull 4 to cancel the shoot until further investigation. This is something that requires stringent action. I will not work with any proven offenders and all those who have been subjugated to harassment should be heard and given the justice they deserve.”
