He asked me to feel his genitals: Actress accuses famous director of sexual misconduct

Wednesday, January 20, 2021 • Tamil Comments

Bringing in fresh allegations of sexual misconduct against popular Bollywood director Sajid Khan, actress Sherlyn Chopra has claimed that the director flashed his genitals at her and apparently asked him to feel it.

Opening up about an incident that allegedly happened in 2005, Sherlyn Chopra said, "When I had met him in April 2005, a few days after my father's demise, he had taken his penis out of his pants and had asked me to feel it. I remember having told him that I know how a penis feels like and that the purpose of my meeting with him was not to feel or rate his penis. It's not an accusation but the disclosure of a fact. Our phone records of the past may be checked regarding the same. After flashing his penis, he had not only asked me to touch it and feel it but also asked me if I had ever seen a penis as well endowed as his."

"I was emotionally broken at the time as in early April 2005, I had lost my father, late Dr Prem Sagar Chopra. A few days after my father's demise, I was called for a meeting by the filmmaker. Little did I know that the meeting would be centred around his penis!" the actress added. Sajid Khan was earlier suspended from the Indian Film & Television Directors' Association for a year after several actresses came forward to accuse the director of sexual abuse.

After three women named Sajid Khan in 2018 for gross sexual misconduct, he was forced to step down from directing Housefull 4, starring Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, and Pooja Hegde. Farhad Samhji replaced him as the director of the film. Akshay Kumar had mentioned in an interview later that he would work with Sajid Khan in the future if the director was acquitted of the charges levelled against him.
