Bigg Boss 16: Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal seeks the elimination of Sajid Khan from the show; writes to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur
Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal has written to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur demanding the elimination of #MeToo accused Sajid Khan from Bigg Boss 16.
For the unversed, Sajid was accused of s*xual harassment by several women during the #MeToo movement. In her tweet, Maliwal wrote, “Ten women had accused Sajid Khan of s*xual harassment during the #MeToo movement. All these complaints show the disgusting mentality of Sajid. Now, this man has been given a place in Bigg Boss, which is wrong. I have written to @ianuragthakur to have Sajid Khan removed from this show.”
Sajid Khan was suspended for a year by the Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association (IFTDA) in 2018 after multiple women accused him of s*xual harassment. Earlier that year, he was also axed from the “Housefull 4” movie and was replaced by Farhad Samji.
