Sajid Khan Accused Of Sexual Harassment By These Three Women

According to a Times of India report, the actor's decision comes after the film's most high-profile star, Akshay Kumar, said he wouldn't work with proven sexual offenders. He has requested media and his friends that till the time these accusations are not proven, they should not pass any kind of judgement on him.

The film's cast includes Akshay Kumar, Kriti Kharbanda, Kriti Sanon, Nana Patekar, Bobby Deol, Pooja Hegde, Boman Irani and Riteish Deshmukh along with various others.

"I was told by all not to say anything to him and stoop to his level- so I quietly finished my work as a professional and explained my stance to the producers, that I couldn't associate myself with this film anymore as I could lose my temper any moment", she posted on Twitter. "This is something that requires stringent action". "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through".

Following revelations made by actor Saloni Chopra against director Sajid Khan, who dominated Twitter trends on Friday morning, October 12, for sexually harassing his female colleagues in the media industry, another Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu came down heavily on the director.

She further wrote that Sajid walked out of the room to bring some CDs he wanted to show her. He also shared his statement on Housefull 4. "This can not go on", Twinkle Khanna tweeted.

Khanna had earlier voiced support for Dutta, saying a healthy working environment is a fundamental right.

Khan has not yet responded to the allegations against him. She has claimed that he tried to get too close for comfort on the sets of the 2008 film Horn Ok Pleassss. "Please read this thread before judging or shaming #TanushreeDutta a working environment without harassment and intimidation is a fundamental right and by speaking up this courageous woman helps pave the way towards that very goal for all of us", she had tweeted.

Sajid announced that he would be stepping down as director to 'allay the allegations and prove the truth.' Three women had come forward with accounts of harassment they'd been subjected to at the hands of the director.
