Filmmaker Sajid Khan’s name had surfaced during the #MeToo movement as several actresses had accused him of sexual misconduct. Now in the recently released BBC documentary Death In Bollywood, late actress Jiah Khan’s sister Karishma Khan has levelled sexual misconduct allegations on Sajid Khan.

A clip from the documentary has surfaced on social media in which Karishma is heard speaking about the harassment faced by Jiah while she was working with Sajid.

Jiah’s sister claimed that Sajid had asked Jiah to take her top off during a rehearsal. Post the incident, Jiah came back home crying said Karishma. In the video, Jiah’s sister is heard saying, “When she was asked by Sajid Khan to take her top off, she came home and cried. She said, “It was a rehearsal, she was reading the scripts and he asked her to take off her top and stay in her bra. She didn’t know what to do, she said ‘the filming hasn’t even begun yet and this is happening.’ She came home and cried.”

Karishma further added, “I (Jiah) have a contract, and if I leave, he’ll sue me and slander my name and if I stay then I’ll be sexually harassed, it is a lose-lose situation.’ So, she did do the film.

Karishma also spoke about the time when she had gone to Sajid’s place with Jiah. Speaking about her experience, Karishma said, “I remember going to Sajid Khan’s house with my big sister and I remember being around the kitchen table, must’ve been like 16 at this stage. I was just wearing a strappy top and was leaned at the table and he was sort of staring and said ‘Oh she wants sex’. My sister Jiah immediately jumped to my defence and said ‘No what are you talking about’, and he said, ‘Look at the way she’s sitting’.”

The film which Jiah had signed with Sajid was Housefull. It released in 2010.

Jiah’s sister said that she was just 16-year-old then and after Sajid’s inappropriate remarks, they left his house soon. Jiah was found dead in Mumbai Apartment on June 3, 2013, in Mumbai. She was 25.
