While Saif’s clearly mentioned that it was not the sexual harassment he faced, here’s another Race 3 actor who brings his story forward.
Saqib Saleem- brother of Huma Qureshi join the MeToo movement.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Saqib 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.” He further added that he reacted in a way that he did not because of that person’s sexuality but his actions.
He said, “These stories are heartbreaking and sexual offenders are horrible people.”
