Paula started the note by writing that during the #MeToo movement she kept quiet because of her family and now when she doesn’t have them with her, she wanted to speak. She dared to tell the public that she was sexually harassed by Sajid Khan at the age of 17.

Paula said that the filmmaker tried to touch her inappropriately and said nasty things. He asked her to strip in front of him to get a role in Housefull.

The statement on the Instagram post read: “When #MeToo movement started, a lot of people spoke about Sajid Khan but I did not dare to because like every other actor who has no godfather and had to earn for a family I kept quiet. Now I don’t have my parents with me. I’m earning for myself. I can dare to tell that I have been harassed by Sajid Khan at the age of 17 (sic).”

Paula concluded, “God knows with how many girls he has done this. I am coming out now not for ant pity party. It’s just that I realised that had affected me so bad when I was a child and chose not to speak. But it’s high time no? These Bastards should be behind bars not only for casting couch but also for manipulating and for stealing away your dreams. But I did not stop!! But the wrong I did was not to speak about it!”

Sajid Khan was accused of sexual harassment by three women actor Rachel White, assistant director Saloni Chopra and a journalist in 2018. The makers of Housefull 4 then decided to drop his name as a director.
