One of the biggest topics of conversations around Bigg Boss 16 has been Sajid Khan’s entry as a contestant. Actresses like Sona Mohapatra, Rani Chatterjee, Uorfi Javed, Tanushree Dutta, and Sherlyn Chopra have spoken against the filmmaker and questioned why Bigg Boss has allowed a MeToo accused in the house.
Recently, an old interview with the Houseful franchise filmmaker has resurfaced. A Reddit user shared a clip from Sajid Khan’s interview with Kiran Juneja. They captioned the video, “Sajid Khan taking about his relationships”
In an old video, Sajid can be seen talking about his break-up with Gauahar Khan. He confesses that while he was engaged to Gauahar, he had a loose character and would confess ‘I love you, will you marry me’ to every girl he met. He further shares that even though he never misbehaved with anyone he would lie to the girls, propose to them and roam around with them.
The Himmatwala director said, “Uss waqt mera character bohot dheela tha. Mai uss waqt ladkiyon ke sath bhaar ghoom raha tha aur bohot jhoot bol raha tha. Maine aise koi badtameezi nahin ki but har ladki ko, ‘I love you, will you marry me’ bolta tha. (I had a loose character at that time, I would constantly lie to women and roam around with them. I never misbehaved with them but told them ‘I love you, will you marry me’).”
In the video, he also points out that arranged marriages work better than love marriages because women don’t want to be treated as damsels in distress anymore and if one gives them nonsense they will leave the person. He further said, “Today there’s a lot of awareness about women which I am very happy about because I have been with a working mom and sister,” he shared.
For the unversed, Sajid’s downfall started when he was wrapped up in MeToo accusations in 2018. Nine women from the entertainment industry came forward and spoke about Sajid’s misbehaviour and harassment, which ultimately led the filmmaker to be banned from making films.
