Mumbai: In the wake of India’s # movement, actor Akshay Kumar cancelled the shoot of his work-in-progress film Housefull 4, in which he co-starred with Nana Patekar, whom actress Tanushree Dutta accused of sexual misconduct. Housefull 4 is directed by Sajid Khan, who was recently implicated in the # allegations by three women.

On Friday, Akshay, who recently returned from a family holiday, shared this statement on Twitter: “I have just landed back in the last night and reading all the news has been very disturbing. I’ve requested the producers of Housefull 4 to cancel the shoot until further investigation.

Farah Khan Friday said the sexual harassment allegations against her filmmaker brother Sajid Khan are “heartbreaking”.

In a statement, posted on Twitter, the director-choreographer, said she completely stands in solidarity with any woman who has faced harassment.

“This is a heartbreaking time for my family. We have to work through some very difficult issues. If my brother has behaved in this manner, he has a lot to atone for. I don’t in any way endorse this behaviour and stand in solidarity with any woman who has been hurt,” she wrote.

Sajid was accused of sexual harassment by two women — actor Saloni Chopra and a journalist. Following the allegations, Sajid Friday stepped down as the director of Housefull 4.

In a post on Twitter, the director said he was taking the “moral responsibility” to step down till he can allay the allegations.

“In the wake of the allegations against me and the pressure being put on my family, my producer and the stars of my film ‘Housefull 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… Request my friends in the media to kindly not pass till the truth is out,” he said.

Sajid’s cousin, actor Farhan Akhtar, who has been a vocal supporter of # movement, said allegations against the filmmaker were shocking.
