Bipasha Basu on Sajid Khan's sexual harassment allegations

Bipasha Basu, who worked with Sajid Khan in the movie Humshakals, stated that he created a humiliating environment for women on the sets and was pretty rude to them. Sajid has been accused of sexual harassment by three women including a journalist and an actress. Bipasha had disassociated herself from the promotions of Humshakals owing to Sajid's inappropriate behaviour, she revealed in an interview with Indian Express.

She said, "I am glad that women are speaking up about the atrocities of these men with power and clout. It was just his general attitude towards women that would disturb me. He cracked lewd jokes openly and was pretty rude to all girls. (Though) never ever did the same with me." Bipasha, however, did add that she has never faced direct harassment by Khan, but his general attitude irked her the most. She continued, "I had sworn never to work in a humiliating environment for women ever again after Humshakals. Everyone knows I dissociated from the film for exactly this reason. I made it loud and clear."

Sajid, in the meanwhile, has stepped down from the directorial post of Housefull 4. He released a statement asking the media to not be judgemental before the truth is out. His sister Farah Khan clarified that she does not endorse such behaviour and that is true, then sis is not sure how Sajid would ever be able to atone himself. Close friend Farhan Akhtar too expressed his shock over it and said that he is highly disturbed with the revelations.
