She faced repeated harassment and Sajid Khan always passed comments like she wasn't sexy enough or didn't have enough "oomph". "I will not work with any proven offenders and all those who have been subjugated to harassment should be heard and given the justice they deserve", he wrote.

It seems like Akshay Kumar has apparently influenced by Aamir Khan's actions and has asked his Housefull 4 director, Sajid Khan, to step down from the film.

Earlier today, Twinkle Khanna shared on Twitter, "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through. This can not go on", Twinkle Khanna tweeted.

Responding to the accusations, filmmaker Sajid Khan too took to Twitter, he mentioned in his tweet that in the wake of the allegations against him, there is enormous pressure being put on his family, producer and the actors of his film Housefull 4.

In a move that came as a complete shocker and also an eye-opener to the film fraternity, Superstar Akshay Kumar has made a decision to cancel the shooting of his upcoming film "Housefull 4".

So, I am totally aware of that. "Whether it be "Grizou" [Antoine Griezmann], Kylian [Mbappe] or Raph [Varane], they deserve it a lot more than me".

The cast of Housefull 4, produced by Sajid Nadiadwalla, also includes Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Sharad Kelkar, Pooja Hegde, Kriti Kharbanda and Kriti Sanon. While Akshay immediately took off for a vacation with his wife Twinkle Khanna and their daughter Nitara, actor Nana Patekar announced a press conference to address the allegations pressed against him by Ms Dutta.

She also wrote that 'it's been 7 years, and it's about time I said it out loud'. Now, in 2018 also, she has filed an FIR in Oshiwara police station.

Akshay is being hailed for his bold step despite his friendship with Sajid Khan, with whom he has worked in several films together in the past. 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.

She recalls how petrified she was whenever Sajid would call her for work.

The #MeToo movement knocked on Bollywood's door recently and ever since several prominemt members of the film industry such as Alok Nath, Rajat Kapoor and Vikas Bahl have been outed as sexual predators.
