Pakistani-American actress Somy Ali has accused Bollywood superstar and ex-boyfriend Salman Khan of physical, sexual and verbal abuse.
Ali, who worked in Bollywood films in the 90s has been sharing multiple accusations in posts on social media against Khan.
The former actor said she has never praised the actor and it took her 20 years to come out with her truth due to trauma.
Ali shared a video on Instagram, in which she accused Salman of conspiring to ban her show, Flight or Fight from screening on Discovery+ in India.
“I want Salman Khan to confess what he put me through, from the verbal, sexual and physical abuse and I want a public apology which an egomaniac and a narcissistic individual will probably never do. And I want him to unban my show and I want India to be able to watch what No More Tears does, what I have given my 15 years of blood and sweat in working and saving over 40,000 men and women,” she said in the video, reports Hindustani Times.
Ali and Khan reportedly dated from 1991 to 1999. She shot a film with Khan that was eventually shelved.
During her brief stint in Bollywood, Ali worked in films such as Krishan Avtaar with Mithun Chakraborty, Yaar Gaddar with Saif Ali Khan and Anth with Suniel Shetty.
“I want Mr Khan to look at himself in the mirror and ask himself this question: How can you say that you have never hit me or abused me? How can you live with yourself, knowing that I’ve done these things and blatantly deny them and then have the audacity to ban my show? Shame on you. I hope that you find the grace in yourself to apologise publicly and to confess what you have done.”
Ali added that everyone in the 90s knew that Khan was ‘abusing’ her.
“People have mocked me for praising him for years and now lashing out at him; well, years ago he did not ban my show and I have to say this again and again, everyone in the 90s knew he was abusing me.”
