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

BREAKING Akshay Kumar stalls HOUSEFULL 4 SHOOT Sajid Khan STEPS DOWN as a director

Sajid, who was directing "Housefull 4", has now stepped down from his post and has asked people not to pass judgements until the truth is out. "I will not work with any proven offenders and all those who have been subjugated to harrasment should be heard and given the justice they deserve".

After Tanushree and Nana Patekar's controversy has stormed Bollywood, House full Housefull 4 actor Sajid Khan has now been accused of sexual misconduct by more than one woman.

Akshay Kumar's wife Twinkle Khanna also tweeted: "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through. I've requested the producers of Housefull 4 to cancel the shoot until further investigation.". "This can not go on", she wrote on Twitter. In a post on Twitter, Sajid said he was taking the "moral responsibility" to step down till he can clear his name of the allegations.

For the first time in his 28-year old career, Akshay Kumar cancelled a film shoot and it was indeed a courageous decision on his part given the fact that a lot of money as well as hard-work of crew members has gone into shooting the film so far. This is something that requires stringent action. "I would say what I said 10 years back, the truth doesn't change". Earlier this week, Ms Dutta filed an FIR against Mr Patekar at Mumbai's Oshiwara Police Station.

Saloni wrote in harrowing detail of harassment she faced at his hands, which included talk of whether she would ever get a breast job done, how sex was really a mental connection and how she was foolish in thinking that casting couch was about one-time sex and that it would end after that and how he wanted her to be a director's assistant and not an assistant director.

Later, Ungli actress Rachel White also come out to narrate her story involving Sajid Khan. She told in a series of tweets that he asked her to strip down to bikini and even asked her to seduce him in 5 mins at his home.

She added that she had to work with him again while she was working with a music channel. Recently, singer Kailash Kher, Rajat Kapoor, Vikas Bahl and Alok Nath had been accused on the same charges.
