Her #MeToo story is another extremely disturbing and harrowing to read.
Sajid Khan, the director of Housefull 1 and 2 and Hey Baby is accused by 3 women – Saloni Chopra, Rachel White and journalist Karishma Upadhyay.
I was in a white vest and blue denims and still felt I was standing nude with that gaze. What happens next is that he finishes his cardio and walks up to me asking me about my boobs and making that kind of conversation. I didn’t bother to answer to anything.

Twinkle Khanna too spoke about the same. She tweeted –
Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through. Everyone involved in Housefull needs to take a firm stance on this issue. This cannot go on.
