Saloni wrote in harrowing detail of harassment she faced at his hands, which included talk of whether she would ever get a breast job done, how sex was really a mental connection and how she was foolish in thinking that casting couch was about one-time sex and that it would end after that and how he wanted her to be a director's assistant and not an assistant director. Sources close to the development have confirmed to Mirror that T-Series is going to ask Kapoor to step down as the director of their upcoming production, Mogul. In an interview with Medium.com, she also explained how she was not as assistant director but the director's assistant.

The article further had Saloni sharing that once when she felt infuriated with Sajid calling and texting him at odd hours, he straight away asked him if it was only about sex and if it was, she was ready to give him what he wanted so that he leave her alone after that. Unfortunately, I was naive and had no idea how to handle it at the time. She said that Sajid Khan had posed questions like does she masturbate? or if she had been sexually abused and several other personal questions that got her into tears.

The #MeeToo movement in Bollywood seems to be gaining momentum with each passing day.

She got the job. But things got worse for her after that. He'd tell me I wasn't sexy enough to be an actress. I didn't have it in me, I didn't have the "oomph" factor. 'Spread your legs when you sit!' I said I didn't want to. I wasn't alluring or girly enough. Initially, I wanted to find a way to not work on that show. Cast me in his next movie, but only if I was prepared for it. Stay with him. Maybe he'll ask me to touch myself in front of him, maybe he'll want to record it. She also said the filmmaker has targeted many girls and it's time to speak about it. She wrote, "I was so exhausted of his behaviour that even my fear of him wasn't enough to shut me up". He'd gloat about how he made her who she is today, and he could train me too. Then I realised, why should I let go of an opportunity because a man can't keep his d**k in his trousers.

He'd talk about his dick and how big it apparently is and his sexual needs. Later he briefly met the media and said: "My lawyer has asked me to not talk to any channel, have to listen to him". She would be furthermore humiliated by him with comments on her breast and ass being non-existent for her to be an actress. He could print a contract right now and make me sign it, but I just didn't have it in me.
