Another model named Rachel White spoke about the incident that scarred her for life. She alleged that he was asked to strip by Sajid at his home where he called her for a role in a film he had to offer. Rachel said that when she told him he could see the photographs in which she was wearing a bikini, Sajid said that he wanted to see how she looked like in real life. “I said ‘I am ready to parade your office in a bikini, not at home,” she said.
