The #MeToo movement is here and women are courageously naming their predators in public. While the list of names that have surfaced have shocked the film wallahs, the name of Housefull 4 filmmaker Sajid Khan surfaced yesterday. Last evening a former assistant called out to Sajid and revealed how he sexually harassed her. Ever since then, the entire cast and crew of Housefull 4 have been in a shock.
The makers of the film decided to drop Sajid from the project as soon as his name surfaced. Sajid apparently even met Sajid Nadiadwala and Akshay Kumar and agreed to not be the captain of the ship. While Akshay tweeted what he had to say about the project, his wife Twinkle Khanna took to Twitter and wrote about how people involved with the comedy flick need to take a firm decision.
Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through. Everyone involved in Housefull needs to take a firm stance on this issue. This cannot go on.

Apart from Sajid, Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Utsav Chakraborty, Gursimran Khamba, Subhash Ghai, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Rajat Kapoor, Kailash Kher and Varun Grover have also been accused in the #MeToo movement.
