Sajid Khan Accused Of Sexual Harassment By These Three Women

Mumbai: Amid sexual harassment allegations against director Sajid Khan and actor Nana Patekar, actor Akshay Kumar has called off the shooting of "Housefull 4".

More names from Bollywood make headlines as India's MeToo movement takes off; director Sajid Khan - Farah Khan's brother, and Khalnayak director Subhash Ghai have been accused of sexual harassment and rape, respectively. A 21-year-old Delhi-based aspiring actress had alleged Morani took objectionable pictures and videos and sexually exploited her by threatening to post them on social media. Till the time I can allay the allegations and prove the truth. "He'd ask me to come stay over at his house and I'd find whatever excuse I could to not go".

Actor Saloni Chopra recounted that he would only talk of his genitalia when she worked as an assistant director with him. He also requested the producers of Housefull 4 to cancel the shoot until the allegations against Sajid were investigated. Retweeting Chopra's tweet, she explained that during the making of Humshakals, Sajid asked her to come to his home, stared at her breasts and asked her to strip on the pretext that her role in the film required her to be in a bikini.

Reacting to harassment allegation on her brother, Farah Khan said that "if my brother has behaved in this manner he has a lot to atone for".

A source close to Bollywoodlife revealed that Akshay and the producer of the film, Sajid Nadiadwala, took this call after the former returned from his holiday.

Housefull 4 has popular Telugu heroines like Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde in the leads alongside Akshay Kumar and Ritesh Deshmukh.

After seen Amrita's tweet Farhan replied to her and wrote, "I deeply resent your insinuation that me or my family knew of his behaviour yet did nothing". He has denied the allegation and the matter is sub judice.
