#MeToo movement explodes: Sajid Khan steps down as 'Housefull 4' director

Sajid Khan accused of sexual harassment by a journalist

He also wrote, "This is something that requires stringent action".

"I have known about her plight for a while now and wanted it to get out for the world to know", says filmmaker and friend Onir.

"I will not work with any proven offenders and all those subjugated to harassment should be heard and given the justice they deserve", Kumar's statement said.

Saloni said that when she had started working with Sajid Khan, he used to refer her as director's assistant and not assistant director which meant that she had to do his work directly. "This can not go on", she wrote on Twitter.

Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, Housefull 4 was set to release around Diwali 2019.

Well, seems like Tanushree Dutta has opened a can of worms after levelling sexual abuse allegations against Nana Patekar. Apparently Saloni got a job and Sajid said that she is Director's assistant and not an assistant director. I was so exhausted of the calls and the constant harassment, I asked him what he wanted from me.

Who would've thought that the maker of many blockbuster comedy films, Sajid Khan, is actually a sexual abuser.

As per the post of the actress, she had faced sexual and mental harassment from the director for several months. Rachel White re-tweeted Saloni Chopra's account and added her own story. They didn't talk about anything else until Sajid Khan snapped, "Spread your legs when you sit.' When Saloni refused, he started again about how she was unattractive and then he tried to grab his hand and put it on his dick to show her that she did not give him a boner".

Replying to Saloni Chopra's post, actress Rachel White also shared her #MeToo moment with Housefull director Sajid Khan. 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.

Yesterday, journalist Karishma Upadhyay shared a story on Twitter about her encounter with Sajid Khan and said that when she interviewed him in the early 2000s at his house, he talked about how large his penis is and how he knows how to satisfy women.

However, the initiated was taken by our film industry i.e. Bollywood where a number of women have spoken about their experiences on Twitter under #MeToo movement.
