The Me Too movement kickstarted in India started when Bollywood actor Tanushree Dutta allegedly accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of misbehaving with her during the filming of 2008 Horn Ok Pleasss.

Sajid, who was directing "Housefull 4", has now stepped down from his post and has asked people not to pass judgements until the truth is out. He further mentioned that this is something which requires a stringent action.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, three women have come forth and levelled sexual harassment allegations against director Sajid Khan. Akshay stopped working on Housefull 4 after his director Sajid Khan was accused of misconduct.

Akshay on Friday shared a statement on Twitter, saying he 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". Ms Chopra recounted her story in a blog post, saying she was hired by Sajid Khan in 2011 as an assistant director; however, the filmmaker told her she was "the director's assistant". "He'd talk about his dick and how big it apparently is and his sexual needs".

She wrote further that one night when yet again called her, she being irritated straight off asked what he wanted and if it is sex then she is ready to get it done and over with so that he will just back off after that, and leave her alone.

Akshay Kumar's wife Twinkle Khanna also tweeted: "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through". On her Twitter page, Karishma Upadhyay shared what happened with her when she interviewed Sajid Khan in early 2000s. "This can not go on".

Last year, Akshay Kumar had come under fire for a "joke" he made about comedian Mallika Dua on the sets of the TV show "The Great Indian Laughter Challenge".

Mallika as well as her father, journalist Vinod Dua, had lashed out at the actor for his inappropriate comment. Mallika had to face trolling and vile abuse on social media for speaking out against the actor.

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 vast pressure being put on his family, producer and the actors of his film Housefull 4.
