Mandana Karimi Quits Bollywood After Sajid Khan Entry In Bigg Boss 16

Voicing her displeasure over the Housefull director Sajid Khan’s participation in Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss 16, actor Mandana Karimi has decided to quit Bollywood. In her interview with Hindustan Times, the Iranian-origin actor, who shot to fame with Lock Upp show, said she was not “surprised” to see filmmaker Sajid Khan, who was accused of sexual misconduct during the #MeToo movement was back in the mainstream. 

“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,” Karimi told Hindustan Times.  ALso Read: Prince Narula, Yuvika Chaudhary To Host Nach Baliye 10?
