There is a big debate these days about filmmaker Sajid Khan, who is seen as a contestant in Bigg Boss 16. In fact, during the ongoing MeToo movement in the year 2018, Sajid Khan was accused of sexual harassment by many of his female colleagues. These women included Mandana Karimi, Sherlyn Chopra, Rachel White, Simran Suri, Marina Kuwar, Aahana Kumra, Saloni Chopra, journalist Karishma Upadhyay and actress Kanishka Soni, to name a few more. When this controversy happened, Sajid was directing the film ‘Housefull 4’ and due to this controversy he was removed from that film. Since then, Sajid has been missing till now. Now after 4 years, he is seen as a contestant in ‘Bigg Boss 16’, for which from Sherlyn Chopra, Urfi Javed to Kanishka Soni have fiercely attacked Salman Khan and the makers of the show. However, if we talk about the MeToo movement, not only Sajid Khan but many other big stars of Bollywood also came under target.
The name of Bollywood veteran actor Nana Patekar was the first to appear in this list. This allegation was made against him by actress Tanushree Dutta. At that time, raising the matter of about 10 years old, he told that Nana Patekar had misbehaved with him during the shooting of the movie ‘Horn OK Please’. Not only this, Tanushree also prosecuted Nana for defamation of Rs 25 crore.
The most shocking name in this list was that of Babu ji alias Alok Nath, who played cultured characters in TV and films. Alok was accused of rape by director-producer Vinta Nanda. Vinta said that Alok did this during the shooting of the TV show ‘Tara’. Vinta had also filed a case against Alok, although this case was 19 years old, so the case was closed due to no evidence against Alok. Apart from Vinta, actresses Renuka Shahane, Himani Shivpuri and Sandhya Mridul also raised their voice against Alok.
Bollywood’s famous singer Kailash Kher has also been accused of MeToo. In the year 2018 itself, Kailash was accused of sexual abuse by a photojournalist Natasha Hemerjani. After Natasha, many other women also made similar allegations against her, including singer Sona Mohapatra’s name. After this allegation, the difficulties of Kailash Kher were seen increasing.
