Indian model Dimple Paul (Paula) recently revealed how she was allegedly sexually harassed by Sajid Khan, 10 years ago.
Revealing why it’s taken her such a long time to open up, Paul said, “I was re-evaluating my life during the lockdown and realised that when I started my career with same pageant and all of these things happened with me, I didn’t go to any big banners for the next three to four years, thinking that everyone is the same. I wasted so many years of my life. I went through that stress, so how could I speak about it?”
She went on to add, “Also, my mother was orthodox. She never wanted me to get into the industry. If I told her about my first horrifying encounter with him (Sajid Khan), she would never allow me to enter Bollywood. So, I was saving myself at that time. And, I am sorry, I think I did something wrong. I didn’t speak up at that time.”
Talking about how she is no longer living in fear, Paul stated, “My mother passed away last year, my father is no more; I don’t think I am scared of anything. I just wanted to speak out my story because a lot of people want to get into Bollywood. They should know that some perverts like him exist.”
