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

The journalist further wrote that she again met Sajid for work, but forewarned him of his behaviour.

According to a Times of India report, the actor's decision comes after the film's most high-profile star, Akshay Kumar, said he wouldn't work with proven sexual offenders.

Sajid announced that he would be stepping down as director to 'allay the allegations and prove the truth.' Three women had come forward with accounts of harassment they'd been subjected to at the hands of the director. Farah has now said that were the accusations against her brother to be proven true, he would have to atone for his sins. His sister Farah Khan and cousin Farhan Akhtar have spoken out.

With the #MeToo movement gaining momentum, a lot of Bollywood celebrities are being called out for sexual harassment women on various occasions. Akshay Kumar's wife, Twinkle Khanna also stood up against what the makers of Akshay's film are being blamed about, she said, "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through". In an interview with PTI today, Bipasha exclaimed how glad she is that women were opening up about their experiences with Sajid Khan, whose attitude towards female cast and crew members on the sets of a film disturbed her. Everyone involved in Housefull needs to take a firm stance on this issue.

Many other condemned the act and supported Saloni for her courageous act. He cracked lewd jokes openly and was pretty rude to all girls. Then he asked weird questions like if I would ever get a breast job, and talked about how sex is really a mental connection. "(Though) never ever did the same with me".

Bipasha and Sajid had a fallout during the making of Humshakals and the actor decided not to promote the film. "I made it loud and clear".
