Mumbai: BBC’s recent release, ‘Death In Bollywood’, a three-part documentary based on actress Jiah Khan’s mysterious death, has created a major uproar among fans, calling out late actress then-boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi and his father Aditya. Opening a can of worms, this documentary left people pondering how improper the investigation was, and wondering if the case mirrored that of late Sushant Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
However, the docu-series is not open for viewing in India, snippets from the episodes are going viral on the internet. One of the viral clips has late actress’s sister, Karishma, talking about the alleged molestation by Jia’s ‘Housefull’ director Sajid Khan, who, as quoted by Karishma, had asked her late sister to “take off her top”.
After making several hidden revelations in its first episode, the makers have also aired second episode of the series, hence, telling more about the story where Jiah Khan’s sister could be seen alleging that Sajid Khan allegedly sexually assaulted her sister.

“It was rehearsal, she was reading the scripts and he asked her to take off her top and her bra. She didn’t know what to do, she said ‘the filming hasn’t even begun yet and this is happening.’ She came home and cried,” she says in one of the viral clips.
“She said, ‘I have a contract, and if I leave, he’ll sue me and slander my name and if I stay then I’ll be sexually harassed, it is a lose lose situation.’ So, she did do the film,” Karishma added.
Making further revelations, Karishma also shared how the director, Sajid Khan, made nasty remarks at her when she had visited his home with Jiah. “I remember going to Sajid Khan’s house with my big sister and I remember being around the kitchen table, must’ve been like 16 at this stage. I was just wearing a strappy top and was leaned at the table and he was sort of staring and said ‘Oh she wants sex’. My sister Jiah immediately jumped to my defence and said ‘No what are you talking about’, and he said, ‘Look at the way she’s sitting’.”
“My sister said, ‘No she’s innocent, she’s young, she doesn’t know what she wants.’ And then we left shortly after that,” alleged Karishma.
These clips surely attracted attention of many including, ‘Queen’ Kangana Ranaut who didn’t hesitated to allege that Sajid Khan has full support from the mafias in the industry. On her Twitter, she wrote, “They killed Jiah they killed Sushant and they tried to kill me, but they roam free have full support of the mafia, growing stronger and successful every year. Know the world is not ideal you are either the prey or the predator. No one will save you you have to save yourself.”

For the unversed, Sajid name was also dragged under #MeeToo movement where multiple women including model and Bigg Boss fame Mandana Karimi had accused Khan of sexual harassment in the past.
