#MeToo: Sajid Khan steps down as director of ‘Housefull 4’

Sajid Khan Accused Of Sexual Harassment By These Three Women

Farah has sided with the women and has made clear that she doesn't stand by what her brother has done. "He would ask me to touch his dick and get irritated with me when I said I didn't want to", she wrote in a blog post. On Thursday, Saloni Chopra and Rachel White, who is a journalist, had detailed about being harassed by Khan.

Strangely, Akshay Kumar's film Housefull 4 also has Nana Patekar who also faces similar allegation but the level of it is far less than what has been said about Sajid Khan who, some girls are saying, is not even apologising for what he has done to them. Retweeting Chopra's tweet, she explained that during the making of Humshakals, Sajid asked her to come to his home, stared at her breasts and asked her to strip on the pretext that her role in the film required her to be in a bikini. I got back to my office and wrote his interview because that was my job. Of course he went into a philosophical rant about our human bodies and it's desires and how sorry he felt for people who had to go through abuse.by the end of the interview I was in tears, and I wasn't entirely sure why. She took to Twitter and said, "This is a heartbreaking time for my family".

Akshay Kumar, the lead actor of Housefull 4, has confirmed that the film shoot has been cancelled.

As per the post of the actress, she had faced sexual and mental harassment from the director for several months. "I will not work with any proven offenders and all those who have been subjugated to harassment should be heard and given the justice they deserve", Akshay wrote.

Akshay's wife and producer Twinkle Khanna also urged everyone involved with the film to take a stand. Now, in a statement given to The Indian Express, the actress has claimed that Sajid is known for his offensive behaviour with women and that's the reason, she kept herself away from working with him again. I clearly rem this episode. I deny strictly and firmly all false allegations like these. Then I realised, why should I let go of an opportunity because a man can't keep his d**k in his trousers.
