Sajid Khan’s roving eye was no secret in the film industry. Everyone including his own sister Farah and  his cousin Farhan Akhtar seem to be caught unawares. Which is somewhat surprising considering how much he bragged about his exploits. Those close to Sajid say he took great  pleasure in narrating his exploits in the minutest details.

“He told his own family members. And they both laughed uproariously over them. I’ve seen and heard this personally. So there  is no  question of them being caught unawares. His sister Farah is now caught in a very unenviable situation. So are all the very close of Sajid and Farah Khan. These include Ritesh Deshmukh (Sajid’s best friend), Abhishek Bachchan, Salman, Shah Rukh Khan and so many others. They don’t know what to say and not saying anything is not an option,” says a source close to the development.

This writer spoke to a close friend of the Khan siblings . He said, “Everyone knew  about Sajid. He often talked about it (the sexual encounters) with much pride. No one was sure if these stories are  partly fiction, as Sajid  keeps making  up stories (screenplays) all the time.”

Now Sajid Khan can make up as many stories as he likes in private. He  isn’t likely  to get any more opportunities to tell stories on screen. Sacked from his underproduction biggie Housefull 4 it is improbable, if not impossible, that Sajid Khan will get to direct another film for a very long time.

Says a friend of the disgraced director, “Whatever his failings as a human being, Sajid Khan loves movies dearly. To be unable to direct films is the biggest punishment he can be given. It’s like cutting off his lifeline.”

Will he make a comeback? Will the  industry accept him despite what has happened. Time will tell.
