"Why should I go to meet IFTDA (Indian Films & Television Directors' Association) again when I have met that Association's President Ashoke Pandit and his committee members at length when I first complained about Sajid Khan's sexual harassment on me? I have told them everything elaborately. They then asked me to send an email in this regard which also I duly did. Karishma Upadhyay (journalist who has also complained against Sajid) had accompanied me. What more do I have to say? They have called me on Saturday, November 10- but I don't think it makes any sense for me to go," Rachel White was spitting fire, while talking to SpotboyE.com this afternoon.

But as Pandit says 'the protocol is, that first we call the accused and hear him out, then we call the complainants, and finally if the need be call both parties face-to-face in the third meeting'. "That's fine," says Rachel, "But I reserve the right to know everything before I go again, about all that happened during the 90-minute meeting they had with Sajid last Wednesday. Yes I know that Sajid denied to all our complaints, but why did we come to know that through the media? Yes, I know that Sajid did not accept that he is guilty but it surely couldn't be a just a 2-letter word 'No' that he uttered during the entire 90 minutes."

So yeah, Rachel, Simran, Priyanka and Karishma have been invited by IFTDA to meet them. We told Rachel that we believe that come Saturday, IFTDA will share with her everything that transpired between Sajid and them--- before they ask her anything further. "Fine, but can that be at least written to me?" Rachel quipped.

"Let Simran Kaur Suri and Priyanka Bose- the two others who haven't gone personally till now- ideally meet them on November 10. As for me, I need a reply from IFTDA. It has to be a 2-way thing, else this is only causing exasperation. I will not go until I don't get a satisfactory reply from them and I have even written that to them," Rachel said emphatically, her voice rising as she stuck to her guns.
