The #MeToo movement came like a storm in Bollywood after Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexual misconduct. After Tanushree accused Nana Patekar, many other big names from several different industries have been named and shamed. This movement has rocked the film industry with names such as Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl and Mukesh Chabbra, among others being called out for their behaviour and alleged sexual harassment of their female colleagues. Saloni, Simran Suri, Rachel White, Karishma Upadhyay had earlier accused Sajid Khan of Sexual misconduct and now Priyanka Bose who has worked in films like Johnny Gaddar, Guzaarish and Love, Sex Aur Dhoka has accused Sajid Khan of misconduct.
She shared their Me Too stories MissMalini.com and accused Sajid Khan of grave sexual misconduct. She said that Sajid had called her over for an audition and she received a text from his assistant that said ‘Should be comfortable in a bikini.” She said, “He walked in and lay down on the sofa. Over his trousers, he held his dick in his hand and said, “If I don’t get a hard-on looking at you, how will my audience?” I cried on my way home. I still can’t remember how I got out of there. It was all too foggy”.
She then went on to share her experience with Soumik Sen and said that he was extra friendly with her during the making of the film. She revealed that Soumik had said that he wanted to have ‘extramarital’ affair with her. She claimed that Anurag Kashyap had even passed a sexist comment on her while he was drunk.
She also said that she did not let all of these get on her way from living her life. “I worked on myself, my outlook and mostly my craft. I had to experience the ‘dark’ side of show business but I promised myself that, I will not let these monsters get in my way of living the life I desired,” said Priyanka.
