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

She also wrote that 'it's been 7 years, and it's about time I said it out loud'.

Khan said he was pulling out of the project following "the pressure being put" on his family (including his sister, director Farah Khan), the stars of Housefull 4 and the producers. "This is something that requires stringent action".

When Saloni Chopra first got interviewed for the job of an AD (Assistant Director) for Sajid Khan's film, the man asked her about her sexual experience, of she's ever been sexually abused or she will ever get a breast job.

Three women - actresses Saloni Chopra and Rachel White and journalist Karishma Upadhyay called out the director for sexual misconduct.

The Me Too movement kickstarted in India started when Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta allegedly accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of misbehaving with her during the filming of 2008 Horn Ok Pleasss. In the post, he said that he had taken a moral responsibility of stepping down from his directorial post till the time he proved his innocence.

Twinkle Khanna also reacted to accusations against Sajid and tweeted, "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through".

Housefull 4 has popular Telugu heroines like Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde in the leads alongside Akshay Kumar and Ritesh Deshmukh. Everyone involved in Housefull needs to take a firm stance on this issue.

Sajid's cousin, Farhan Akhtar, too had reacted strongly stating that the revelation had left him "heartbroken" and shocked.' Farhan had tweeted, "I can not adequately stress how shocked, disappointed and heartbroken I am to read the stories about Sajid's behaviour". In a leaked video, when Mallika Dua reaches to ring the bell, Akshay is heard saying, "Mallika ji aap bell bajao, main aapko bajata hoon".

Mallika as well as her father, journalist Vinod Dua, had lashed out at the actor for his inappropriate comment. Check out his Tweet here: Recently, Akshay Kumar stepped down from "Housefull 4" and asked the producer also to stop the same.
