The #MeToo movement has taken the country by storm, all thanks to Tanushree Dutta’s allegations against Nana Patekar. Big names like Sajid Khan, Alok Nath, Rajat Kapoor, Vikas Bahl and Subhash Ghai have been named and shamed on social media.

Recently, Saqib Saleem too came out and shared his #MeToo story. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Saqib said, “I don’t want to take names, but when I started out as an actor- I was only 21 years old- there was a man who tried to assault me. He tried to put his hand in my pants.

Saqib added that he whacked the guy as a response, and told him to mind his own f****** business. He said that the incident scarred him, but he managed to move on from the incident.
