In the light of the recent events related to sexual misconduct allegations piling up against Sajid Khan, Mandana Karimi came forward with her horrific experience while working with him. The actress revealed that he made some inappropriate remarks when she visited his office in 2014 regarding the film Humshakals.
Mandana said, “ I was in talks for Sajid Khan's Humshakals at the casting stage. My manager and I visited his office. After meeting producer Vashu Bhagnani, I was in a room with Sajid, when he said, 'Lovely pictures but you need to remove your clothes. If I like what I see, you might get the part.”
She laughed it off when her manager said that he is a huge director, even though she was really uncomfortable. She said, “Be that as it may, you can't abuse your power.”
She told ANI that she was harassed by Kya Kool Hain Hum director Umesh Ghadge just because she refused to go out on a date with him. The actress said, “Harassment doesn't mean to touch me, it means to make my life hell. I was too miserable. Umesh Ghadge started harassing me by changing the steps in the song, putting other people in the song, saying this is a last-minute decision, calling me early on set, asking me to wear clothes that I was not even supposed to wear, keeping me waiting.”
