With the mounting pressure to evict #MeToo accused Sajid Khan from the Bigg Boss 16 house, it is only a matter of time before Khan gets the boot.
Sources close to Bigg Boss have indicated that Sajid will be out “within a week” and that the show’s superstar-host Salman Khan, who exercises a huge clout over the show’s content, has also acquiesced to the demand.
“The situation is very delicate for Salman, as he is very close to Sajid’s sister Farah Khan. She requested Salman to help, which he did in good faith little knowing that it would backfire so badly,” says a close friend of Salman’s.
Sajid Khan has been facing many serious allegations under #MeToo over the last few years and one of the victims was Sherlyn Chopra, who accused the filmmaker over sexual misconduct. In a recently held press conference, Sherlyn spoke about an incident in 2005, when the filmmaker flashed his private part and asked her to, “touch, feel and rate it.”
Sajid has been accused of sexual assault allegations, which includes flashing his private parts at parties, asking female actors to send him their nude pictures as part of the casting process and watching porn in front of women.
Recently, singer Sona Mohapatra called Indian television channels and executives “depraved and sad” as Sajid Khan was brought in as a contestant in ‘Bigg Boss 16’, hosted by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.
Urfi Javed, Saloni Chopra have also expressed their anger at the inclusion of Sajid Khan in Bigg Boss.
