More on the #MeToo list While Subhash Kapoor lands in soup after Aamir Khan distances himself from MogulEven as the #MeToo fire rages on, filmmaker Subhash Kapoor has become the latest member of the film industry to face the heat.

Model-actor Saloni Chopra, in a long post on Medium, leveled allegations on Khan, apart from also naming Vikas Bahl and Zain Durrani.

Rachel recalls that she was sent by her agency to meet Sajid Khan during Humshakals and that she got a call within 5 minutes of her having being informed about the meeting, she got a call from Sajid who told her that the meeting would take place at his Juhu house. To which, as the article read, Sajid had replied that she was a fool if she thought it was only about sex.

"I was in a white vest and blue denims and still felt I was standing nude with that gaze". Angry Sajid started commenting on her that he didn't find her sexy and pulled his trousers off showing dick and yelled "See?"

She faced repeated harassment and Sajid Khan always passed comments like she wasn't sexy enough or didn't have enough "oomph".

When she pleaded and asked him what it is that he wanted from her, "he said he wants me to do everything he tells me to". He'll do things to me and give me orgasm and teach me the art of sex but maybe he won't actually put his d*** inside me. "No one would cast me unless I was ready to be their "keep". After going through many frightful situations and circumstances, Saloni quit the job. And then, he pulled his trousers down and showed me his dick as he kept yelling 'see? 'Spread your legs when you sit!' I said I didn't want to. I was so exhausted of his behaviour that even my fear of him wasn't enough to shut me up. It was about being his "little bitch" who does everything asked by him. I'll never forget what he said to me, 'You are fatter than you used to be. Saloni concluded her statement writing that, it was the last straw and she had enough, she threw the laptop and left the workstation. I was petrified and disgusted and I couldn't believe what had just happened to me. I was so scared around the people I worked with.

Khan's announcement came in the wake of allegations of misconduct and harassment by journalist Karishma Upadhyay and actress Saloni Chopra. This one time, during a costume trial for a character in the movie he came in to see the girl in the outfit and asked her to lift her skirt and show her ass to him, she looked at me confused and I asked Sajid if it was necessary. Thru the interview, he talked about how large his p***s is & how he knew how to satisfy a woman.

Bollywood's tales of Me Too are getting murkier by the day. I got up to leave immediately only to find him blocking the way out. Saloni mentioned that Sajid had said it didn't matter for him whatsoever she was doing, but if he is calling then she has to pick his call. I cried all the way on the train from Vile Parle to VT. She broke down after the interview, but got the job.

He further added that he would not work with any "proven offenders".

"A few years later, I had to work with Sajid when I was at MTV". Then he asked me to leave the room and let them talk, and I did.
