Any woman who is subjected to such public humiliation bears the scars for life. Zeenat has never forgotten the ugly incident, even though Sanjay Khan seems to have forgotten all about it.” Ironically, during promotions for his sanitised autobiography, Khan was quoted saying, “I’ve always followed a principle: Never cross the line.
