While a lot of actresses have shared their harrowing experiences, B-town actors, on the other hand, probably did not wish to share their #MeToo story. However, Saif Ali Khan did by opening up about his #MeToo story. And now, Saqib Saleem, who was last seen as Salman Khan's brother in Race 3, has come out in open about the sexual harassment he faced. Talking to Hindustan Times, the 30-year-old recalled the incident which took place at the early stage of his career. The actor narrated his ordeal in detail but did not take names.
He said, "I don’t want to take names, but when I started out as an actor- I was only 21 years old there was a man who tried to assault me. He tried to put his hand in my pants."When this incident happened, Saqib whacked the person and told him to mind his own business. He added, "I was 21, and of course, it scared me, but I moved on. I’m sure that everyone’s different, and an incident such as this must affect different people differently."
On a concluding note, when he was asked about the stories which are coming out in the wake of #MeToo movement, the actor said, "These stories are heartbreaking and sexual offenders are horrible people."
