#MeToo Allegation on Director, Hero Cancels Shoot

Subhash Ghai Sajid Khan

Other day three different women have accused director-producer Sajid Khan of sexual harassment, while he's preparing from the shooting of Housefull 4 that will resume today.

One of the names that recently made it to the headlines is that of filmmaker Sajid Khan, who has been alleged of sexual harassment and cracking lewd jokes in front of women.

Bollywood actor Nana Patekar, who has been accused of sexual harassment by Tanushree Dutta, has "distanced" himself from the upcoming film "Housefull 4", to avoid causing further inconvenience to the cast and crew. In a tweet, the journalist accused Sajid Khan of exposing his genitalia to her. He asks questions like 'do you masturbate?' and 'how many times a week?'... he also asked me if I'd ever been sexually abused, I said yes.

The actor also said that he would call her at odd hours justifying it by saying " the industry never sleeps and work happens at all hours... except he wasn't talking about work" and make inappropriate talk on the phone and in person.

Actor Saloni Chopra recounted that he would only talk of his genitalia when she worked as an assistant director with him. 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.

Actor Akshay Kumar just returned from Italy and he has cancelled the shoot of Housefull 4, which was to take place in Mumbai. "I don't in any way endorse this behaviour and stand in solidarity with any woman who has been hurt".

"Housefull 4" also stars Bobby Deol, Riteish Deshmukh and Kriti Kharbanda. This statement by Akshay Kumar comes after his wife Twinkle Khanna on October 11 tweeted, "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through".

Her response chimed well with her followers, most of whom praised her for taking a stand against her own brother.

Mr Patekar denies the allegations.
