Sajid Khan quits Housefull 4 after sexual assault allegations

Sajid Khan accused of sexual misconduct by more women

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has cancelled the shoot of Housefull 4, as his co-actor Nana Patekar and the director Sajid Khan have been accused of sexual harassment.

Actor Saloni Chopra on Thursday wrote a Medium post detailing the various forms of sexual harassment and violence perpetrated by director Sajid Khan, actor Zain Durrani and director Vikas Bahl.

Akshay stopped working on Housefull 4 after his director Sajid Khan was accused of misconduct. Saloni said that he flashed his private parts to her while Karishma said that he forcibly tried to kiss when she went to his place for an interview. Nana Patekar was not behaving appropiately with her and also asked choreographer Ganesh Acharya to include a lewd dance step in a song with Tanushree, claims the actress. "Right after my agency told me about the meeting Sajid called me within the next 5 mins and said the meeting would be at his house opp iskon Juhu".

There seems to be no end to the allegations against director Sajid Khan. Maybe he will.But it would be up to him what he wanted and if I thought casting couch was just about one time sex then I was foolish.

If that wasn't vile enough, Sajid also told her that she doesn't have the "assets" to be an actress and the fact that she should be ready to be sexually exploited by him whenever he wants.

This is a heartbreaking time for my family.We have to work through some very hard issues. The franchise film, directed by Khan, has been a box-office success and has starred Kumar in the earlier versions.

While Bipasha maintained she never experienced any direct harassment by Sajid, the actor had decided Humshakals would be her last film with the director.

Her response chimed well with her followers, most of whom praised her for taking a stand against her own brother. We, the media industry, need to make them feel empowered.

TV actress Sandhya Mridul also came out with her #MeToo incident against TV superstar Alok Nath, and soon after, an actress from the starcast of Hum Aapke Hain Kaun came out against him as well. Actor Ranveer Singh too came out in support of #MeToo.
