Bhojpuri actress Rani Chatterjee recalls her casting couch experience with Sajid Khan 

Filmmaker Sajid Khan was accused of sexual harrasment by several actresses during the MeToo movement and he probably wanted to redeem his image by featuring in the latest season of 'Bigg Boss'. However, that tactic didn't work really well for him as he faced severe backlash from fans as well as from women he allegedly harrassed. Actresses like Mandana Karimi, Aahana Kumra, Sherlyn Chopra etc have already slammed makers of 'Bigg Boss' for including Sajid in the show and recently a Bhojpuri actress names Rani Chatterjee has also opened up about her casting couch experience with Sajid.

Rani told AajTak, “I got in contact with Sajid’s team during the shoot of Himmatwala. He had himself called me and told me that the director wants to get in touch with me. Then he later told me, you come to my house and the meeting could be held there. He also instructed me to come alone and not bring any manager or PR since it was a formal meeting.”

She further added, "Since he’s such a huge director in Bollywood, I listened to him. I went to his Juhu house where he was alone. He initially told me that he was casting me for the ‘Dhoka Dhoka’ item song. He told me that I will have to wear a short lehenga and asked me to show him my legs. Since I was wearing a long skirt, I had to lift it up till my knees assuming maybe that is the process.”

“I got scared when he asked me to tell him about my breast size. Don’t be shy, do you have a boyfriend or not? How often do you have s*x? I got really uncomfortable and asked him ‘what is all this conversation?’ He thought I would do him a favour but I immediately left. He even tried to touch me inappropriately," Rani concluded.
