Akshay Kumar wants Housefull 4 shoot cancelled after allegations against Sajid Khan

This user shared his disgust against how the industry is treating women and urged other celebrities not to work with Sajid Khan and all the other people who are accused of sexual harassment.

In the last two weeks, since the time Tanushree Dutta came out with details of harassment she faced on the sets of a 2008 film, Horn OK Pleassss, at the hands of veteran actor Nana Patekar, scores of women have spoken up in what is being seen as India's #MeToo.

Akshay Kumar just took to Twitter to announce that he would no longer be working with proven sex offenders and as a response to the allegations on his Housefull 4 co-star Nana Patekar and subsequent accusations on director Sajid Khan.

The cast of Housefull 4, produced by Sajid Nadiadwalla, also includes Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Sharad Kelkar, Pooja Hegde, Kriti Kharbanda and Kriti Sanon. Sajid wrote, "In the wake of allegations against me and the presssure being put on my family, my producer and the stars of my film Houseful 4, I must take the moral responsibility of stepping down from my directorial post, till the time I can allay the allegations and prove the truth". "This can not go on". He also confirmed that he has requested the producers to stop the shooting of Housefull 4 until the charges laid on Sajid Khan are being investigated. He further mentioned that this is something which requires a stringent action. His harassment continued and Saloni writes about an incident where he asked her to lift a skirt of a girl who was playing a role in his movie; he insulted her and commented that how did she think she would become an actress without having any breasts or ass.

Meanwhile, veteran actor-lyricist Piyush Mishra made it to the growing list of alleged offenders when a former journalist accused him of misbehaving with her at a party. Sajid Khan also confirmed the rumours of him stepping down from the project by releasing a statement on Twitter.

Unable to take the trauma she even pleaded to tell her what exactly is that he wanted from him. She wrote: "The first time I interviewed Sajid Khan in the early 2000s, he called me to the house he shared w/ his sister".
