"Hats off to you for taking a stand on this issue of sexual harrassment by #SajidKhan".
Khan said he was pulling out of the project following "the pressure being put" on his family, including his sister Farah Khan, the stars of Housefull 4 and the producers.
Director Sajid Khan has made a decision to step down from directing the fourth instalment of BO success "Houseful".
Sajid's cousin, actor Farhan Akhtar, who has been a vocal supporter of #MeToo movement, said allegations against the filmmaker were shocking. "I stand with them today".
"Houseful 4" also has Nana Patekar in the cast who has been pulled up for sexual abuse by actress Tanushree Dutta. I replied saying "there are pics of me in bikinis sent to u, I think that should good for u" n wen he insisted I said "I'm ready to parade ur office in a binkini nt at home..."
She writes that Sajid Khan would call her "director's assistant" instead of the assistant director that she was. However, soon after she reached his place, Sajid Khan's maid directed her to his bedroom, where he was exercising on his treadmill.
Pink actress Taapsee Pannu tweeted: "More than the names it's the description of the way things happened is what is disturbing me the most". Sajid also said that he will not get back to the job till the truth is out about the case.
"So, we also need masses to come out and talk about it".
