  • Sajid Khan accused of sexual harassment by a journalist

As India's #MeToo movement gains momentum, the latest in the long line of well known personalities to be accused of sexual harassment is director Sajid Khan, known for his films such as Housefull and Humshakals.

Saloni Chopra has also named Zain Durrani and Vikas Bahl in her medium post on sexual harassment.

Farah's response came hours after one actor, Saloni Chopra, alleged how Sajid had routinely sexually harassed and mentally tortured her. He has even stepped down as the director Housefull 4, the film he was now directing. I got up to leave immediately only to find him blocking the way out. Saloni said that he flashed his private parts to her while Karishma said that he forcibly tried to kiss when she went to his place for an interview.

Actor Akshay Kumar just returned from Italy and he has cancelled the shoot of Housefull 4, which was to take place in Mumbai.

Rachel White, who has worked in film Ungli and had auditioned for Humshakal, directed by Sajid Khan, says the filmmaker called her to his house and misbehaved, asking her to strip.

The director-choreographer Farah Khan took to her official Twitter account tp write that this is a heartbreaking time for her family.

He tweeted saying, "I can not adequately stress how shocked, disappointed and heartbroken I am to read the stories about Sajid's behaviour".

According to reports, Aamir Khan has already left the film.

He further added that he would not work with any "proven offenders".

Actor Ajay Devgn tweeted that his company believes in treating women with the utmost respect and safety. "I don't in any way endorse this behaviour and stand in solidarity with any woman who has been hurt", she tweeted. "I didn't know if it was because I felt somewhat uncomfortable around him, or because I'd opened up too much". She told us, "Women in Hollywood have greater financial independence and freedom of speech, maybe more than Bollywood actresses who are used to male actors leading the narrative". Her revelation in interviews, not surprisingly, created an outrage and rekindled the infamous #Metoo movement in Bollywood.
