Payal Rohatgi Slams Mandana Karimi Over Quitting Bollywood

Sajid Khan has been in the spotlight for all the contentious reasons ever since he entered the Bigg Boss 16 house. His appearance on India’s version of Bigg Boss has not only stirred up controversy on social media, but also given some people a platform to express their rage. Bollywood actress Mandana Karimi, who had accused Sajid of sexual harassment, recently declared her decision to leave the business in protest of his appearance on Salman Khan’s show. Payal Rohatgi has since responded to the same.

Netizens responded favourably to the actress’ declaration, to the point where they are now calling for his removal from the programme.

Payal Rohatgi Slams Mandana Karimi

Payal Rohatgi recently criticised Mandana Karimi, a co-contestant in Lock Upp, for leaving Bollywood. Payal stated on her social media that Sajid Khan also has the right to live, repent, and make money. She continued by pleading with Mandana not to act out the “drama of departing Bollywood.”

Taking to Insta stories, Payal Rohatgi wrote in a long note, “Sajid Khan has done wrong with 6 women as they narrated publicly. He has been reprimanded by all and publicly humiliated for his actions. Now the 6 women can take him to court. But let me put it no record when even murderers have been given the right to reform by the values of Mahatma Gandhi then here even Sajid Khan has the right to live. He has the right to earn money. He has the right to repent. Let him fight for his right. You oppose him but don’t do the drama of quitting Bollywood.”

Payal also quoted a statement that read, “This (Bollywood) is no place to work, it has no respect for women,” and said, “You should not stay in Iran too as women aren’t respected there either.”

What Mandana Karimi Said

Earlier speaking to Hindustan Times, Mandana Karimi stated that she quit Bollywood in order to protest against Sajid Khan’s entry in Bigg Boss 16. “To be honest, I’m not surprised to see him back in the spotlight. For people, life has become like I will put my head under the sand. If it is going to benefit me, and I can make money, then who cares? That shows why the MeToo movement in India and many other countries didn’t really reach anywhere.”

“It does make me feel sad. To be honest, that is also the reason I have not worked for the last seven months. I’m not working anymore. I didn’t go to any auditions. I don’t want to work in Bollywood. I don’t want to be involved with an industry where there is no respect for women,” Mandana had said further.
