In a move that came as a complete shocker and also an eye-opener to the film fraternity, Superstar Akshay Kumar has made a decision to cancel the shooting of his upcoming film "Housefull 4". Everyone involved in Housefull needs to take a firm stance on this issue. This is something that requires stringent action.

Shortly after Akshay Kumar's statement, Sajid Khan tweeted that he will be stepping down as the director of Housefull 4 "till the time I can allay the allegations and prove the truth". He understands the world of Housefull like no-one else, and he is the best person to takeover the director's spot and complete the film.

After reading the shocking allegations against the filmmaker, Twinkle Khanna said that she was "appalled" and horrified. Later he briefly met the media and said: "My lawyer has asked me to not talk to any channel, have to listen to him". Rachel commented on Saloni's tweet writing, "I believe you @redheadchopra." and went on to share what she had to go through in a series of tweets thereafter. Before the press meet, Nana Patekar told Times Now that it would have been impossible for him to harass Ms Dutta on a crowded set and that he would sue.

His assistant then, Saloni Chopra, shared on her Instagram story that it was in 2011 she interviewed with Sajid Khan for the position of his assistant director. Now, in 2018 also, she has filed an FIR in Oshiwara police station.

Instagram has started to use artificial intelligence against cyber-bullying
Maddie has been very vocally against online bullying and is one among the people who use the platform to promote positivity. The photo sharing platform is now adding this filter to comments that are posted to live videos.

Sajid Khan reacted to this, took to Twitter and has stepped down as the director of the movie.

The source also further added that a press conference will be held in which the makers will make the official announcement. Among other allegations, Ms White said that Mr Khan told her she could get a role in his film (he was casting for 2014 film Humshakals) if she could "seduce him in 5 minutes". She wrote: "The first time I interviewed Sajid Khan in the early 2000s, he called me to the house he shared w/ his sister".

Akshay is being hailed for his bold step despite his friendship with Sajid Khan, with whom he has worked in several films together in the past. Recently, singer Kailash Kher, Rajat Kapoor, Vikas Bahl and Alok Nath had been accused on the same charges.
