Bollywood director Sajid Khan has been courting controversies since his comeback on television in superstar Salman Khan’s reality show Bigg Boss16. And now, a user on Reddit has shared an old interview of Sajid Khan discussing his failed relationships with women, including model-turned-actress Gauahar Khan. 

In the now-viral video, Sajid Khan can be heard admitting to being engaged to Gauahar Khan and revealed that despite being linked up with several women over the years, he never got married. 

It is also worth noting that ever since the video was posted on the networking site, Reddit users have been trolling Sajid Khan him in the comment section.

For the unversed, Sajid Khan has been courting controversies when in 2018 his name cropped up in the #MeToo movement in India after nine women from the Indian film industry accused him of sexually misconduct. Soon after the allegations were made against him, Sajid Khan quit his then upcoming film Housefull 4 as he felt it was his 'moral responsibility of stepping down' as the director of the film.

Sajid Khan, as for the video, can be seen interacting with Kiran Juneja on her show Koshish Se Kaamyaabi Tak. When Juneja asked Sajid Khan about his break-up with Gauahar Khan, Sajid had said, “Uss waqt mera character bohot dheela tha. Mai uss waqt ladkiyon ke sath bhaar ghoom raha tha aur bohot jhoot bol raha tha. Maine aise koi badtameezi nahin ki but har ladki ko, 'I love you, will you marry me’ bolta tha. (In those days, I had a bad character. I used to go around with girls and lie to them. Although I never misbehaved with anyone, I used to propose to everyone)."

Sajid also talked about his ‘I love you’ phase in his life and how it was 'selfish' and added that friendship is important for a relationship to materialise. Sajid Khan also said that arranged marriages in India work as two people take time to start a friendship after marriage, thereby helping the relationship grow and blossom over time. “Pure love stories are all about ups and downs. It also depends on individuals,” he had added.

The internet, on the other hand, has some harsh words to share about Sajid Khan's views on love and marriage.

“This man is literal filth. He knew what women had to face because according to him he came from a home that has a working mother and sister, and he still went ahead and took advantage of vulnerable women who were struggling is so appalling. Also the sheer audacity to star in Big Boss and try to clear his name after #metoo proves how entitled he thinks he is. It’s disgusting," wrote one user, while another added, “Creep thinks he is some playboy,” added another person. Another comment read, “Pathetic.”
