Sajid Khan confirms exit from Housefull 4

Sajid Khan confirms exit from Housefull 4

Sajid Khan's assistant Saloni Chopra took to Instagram to share her harassment experience that took place in 2011 when she interviewed for Sajid Khan's assistant director's position.

Actor Akshay Kumar, who returned from Italy after vacationing with his family, has cancelled the shooting of his upcoming film, Housefull 4 amid sexual allegations against Nana Patekar and Sajid Khan. I was so scared around the people I worked with. "I would say what I said 10 years back, the truth doesn't change". She told in a series of tweets that he asked her to strip down to bikini and even asked her to seduce him in 5 mins at his home. "What about that? That is the question I am asking and how much of that support is genuine because it doesn't result in any kind of disciplinary action". Stay with him. Maybe he'll ask me to touch myself in front of him, maybe he'll want to record it.

She faced repeated harassment and Sajid Khan always passed comments like she wasn't sexy enough or didn't have enough "oomph". Journalist Karishma Upadhyay and actor Rachel White too levelled accusations against Khan. "Thru the interview he talked about how large his penis is & how he knew how to satisfy a woman".

Saloni Chopra further added that at times Sajid Khan would comment on how she lacked sexiness enough to give her that "Oomph" factor. At the end of the first meeting, I forewarned him about behaving himself. "I have no memory of this incident but if it ever happened, I would like to apologise", he told Mirror.

Housefull 4 also features Nana Patekar, who has also been accused of harasssment by actor Tanushree Dutta. Prominent among them have been writer-producer Vinta Nanda, actors Sandhya Mridul and Deepika Amin who have accused actor Alok Nath of harassment; an anonymous woman has accused veteran director Subhash Ghai of drugging and raping her; singer Sona Mohapatra has accused singer Kailash Kher and music composer Anu Malik of harassment and at least three women have spoken their ordeal at the hands of director Rajat Kapoor. But soon, personal stories began pouring in from women in other industries, such as journalism, and the hashtag #MeToo India became a rallying cry against sexual assault and harassment.
