“I didn’t have the courage earlier to file a complaint against a big name like him. After #MeToo, women stepped forward. He should be jailed,” Chopra told news agency ANI.
“I have recently filed a complaint against #MeToo-accused Sajid Khan for sexual exploitation, criminal force and criminal intimidation. The first thing that the police asked me was when this incident happened, to which I replied that it happened in 2005. They asked me why it took me so long to reach out to them. I said that back then I did not have the courage to file a sexual exploitation complaint against a big name like Sajid Khan,” she said.
“I got the courage after the 2018 MeToo movement when I saw and heard women share their horror stories,” she said.

“Anyone can read those media interviews or go on social media to know how #MeToo-accused Sajid Khan behaved inappropriately with those women. He asked some of them about sex, like how many times a day you have sex, how many boyfriends they have, and he showed me his genitals and made me touch them. The question that arises is, can a woman not share her pain even years after the incident? Obviously she can. Back then, I did not have the courage, but today I do. Today, I feel that be it Sajid Khan or Raj Kundra, if they have done wrong, I can raise my voice against them,” she told news agency ANI.
She said that even back then she “did not have any evidence against him because she didn’t carry a spy camera during a professional meeting with a director or producer”.
“So, if the police would have asked me about evidence, what could I have said? It would have been his words against mine. It all comes down to credibility and status. He is obviously much bigger than me. He is Farah Khan’s brother, who is close to Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. So what am I in front of him? I was just an outsider and a nobody. Then what way do I have to prove the truth?” “I did tell my friends and close ones about it, but not my family, because I thought about what they would think about me. I had lost my father at the time. Hence, my family was already very disturbed and by telling them this I did not want to add to it. So, yes, whatever information I have and whatever witnesses there are, I am ready to present them. But if you ask me if I have it all on camera, then no, because we don’t carry a spy camera for professional meetings though these were causal meetings for him, a way to get what he wanted,” said the actor.
