  • His homo character in the film Bombay Talkies was perceived as weird by many. He did everything one could imagine with Randeep Hooda. He went ahead and took him away from his on-screen wife Rani Mukherjee. This role is widely perceived as a reason for the slow progress of Saleem as an actor.
  • #Metoo campaign where many Bollywood actresses and models like Tanushree Dutta and Rachel White gathered the courage and came forward to express the sexual harassment faced by them while working in the film industry, Saqeeb Salim also narrated his own story about how he was sexually assaulted by a man at the age of 21. Saqib said that a man tried to put his hand inside the actor’s pants. This really shocked the entire Bollywood as it was believed that incidents of this kind happen only with women. But Saqib was probably the only actor who had the courage to express it in public.
