Chandigarh, October 2
Among other celebrity contestants, film director Sajid Khan also joined the Salman Khan-hosted reality show ‘Bigg Boss 16’ on Saturday.
Sajid had a special video message from Shehnaaz Gill aka Sana. She asked Sajid to stay humble during the show, entertain the audience and avoid indulging in fights.
“Meri support aapke sath hai. All the best! Rock it brother!,” said Shehnaaz in the video clip.
Sajid responded by telling Salman that Shehnaaz was like a “younger sister” to him and he believed that she would be a superstar in the industry.

However, Shehnaaz’s support for Sajid didn’t go down well with the viewers.
The film director’s name had sprung up during the ‘Me Too’ controversy four years ago after he was accused of molestation by multiple women.
While some netizens were unhappy to see Sajid joining other contestants, they slammed Shehnaaz for openly supporting the “Me Too accused” on a public platform.

Can't believe how #SajidKhan is being portrayed as a hero. His participation is understandable but at least not this way. And then getting #ShehnaazGill to just get him some support. Chi#BiggBoss16 #biggboss #BB16— sana farzeen (@SanaFarzeen) October 1, 2022

Known for movies like ‘Heyy Babyy’, ‘Housefull’, ‘Humshakal’ etc., Sajid Khan didn’t come up with any new projects for quite a few years following the ‘Me Too’ controversy.
While chatting with Salman on stage, Sajid said that his purpose of coming on the show was to reconnect with the audience.
