The renewed #MeToo movement spurred by Tanushree Dutta has encouraged many women to come out and speak about the horrific incidents they’ve gone through at the hands of some powerful men. Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath, Rajat Kapoor, Subhash Ghai were some of the many B-Town celebrities that have been accused of their sexually predatory behaviours. Among these, another shocking name made an appearance when writer Saloni Chopra accused Sajid Khan of heinous sexually inappropriate behaviour. While Sajid Khan is yet to reply to these allegations, the lead actor of his next Housefull installment, Akshay Kumar has already asked the producers to cancel further shoot until further investigation. Now, Sajid’s sister Farah Khan has responded to the allegations and condemned his actions if it’s proven true.
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 behavior and Stand in solidarity with any woman who has been hurt.

We appreciate Farah’s courage to speak in support of the victims especially when a family member has been accused.
While we are grateful that celebrities are finally taking a stand for what’s right, we hope that justice prevails and the victims who suffered trauma at the hands of such abusers are punished severely.
