The second actor, Rachel White, shared that Sajid Khan called her into his bedroom, stared at her breasts and then allegedly told her that the role in a film would be hers if she could seduce him in five minutes. "I ignored his trash talk and got back on track with my interview".

She recalls how petrified she was whenever Sajid would call her for work.

As Sajid had asked her while interviewing the actress that "if she has ever been sexually abused" and also asked "Do you masturbate" and also threatened her to throw out of the industry, Saloni claims. Stay with him. Maybe he'll ask me to touch myself in front of him, maybe he'll want to record it. He'll do things to me and give me orgasm and teach me the art of sex but maybe he won't actually put his dick inside me. One fan wrote, "We love you sir, morning I had expected this from you".

She further wrote that Sajid walked out of the room to bring some CDs he wanted to show her.

There was also a time when she agreed to let Sajid have his way when he asked her to come and stay with him.

Saloni threw the laptop and walked out of the room.

Tornadoes, risky winds and more flooding are possible in numerous same areas still recovering from Hurricane Florence . As I like to say in my talks, "During hurricane season you have to have the weather for breakfast, lunch and dinner".

It did not end there. Journalist Karishma Upadhyay alleged that Mr Khan blocked her way on her way out and "forced his tongue down her throat".

Twitter too blasted on Sajid for his behaviour.

Sajid, who was directing "Housefull 4", has now stepped down from his post and has asked people not to pass judgements until the truth is out.

Actor Akshay Kumar has earned plenty of plaudits for halting the shooting of his next film Housefull 4 after serious allegations of sexual harassment emerged against director Sajid Khan.

In the last two weeks, since the time Tanushree Dutta came out with details of harassment she faced on the sets of a 2008 film, Horn OK Pleassss, at the hands of veteran actor Nana Patekar, scores of women have spoken up in what is being seen as India's #MeToo.

Farhan Akhtar, Sajid's cousin, also expressed "shock" and "disappointment" over the allegations.
