Sajid Khan, who was the director of Housefull 4 starring Akshay Kumar, has been accused of se*ual assault by several women!
Amongst several names exposed from B-town in the wake of #MeToo, Sajid Khan’s name has also joined the row. The filmmaker has been accused of se*ual assault by many women now including the actresses Saloni Chopra and Rachel White. This has made the actor Akshay Kumar cancel the shoot of Housefull 4, in which he has been working with him.
In a statement released on social media, the actor said, “I’ve just landed back in the country last night and reading all the news has been very disturbing. I’ve requested the producers of Housefull 4 to cancel the shoot until further investigation. This is something that requires stringent action. 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’s wife and the former actress now turned writer, Twinkle Khanna too believes that the team of the film should take a stand. She took to Twiiter saying, “Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through. Everyone involved in Housefull needs to take a firm stance on this issue. This cannot go on.”
