After reading this, Twinkle Khanna told the Housefull 4 team to take strict action, soon after which her husband Akshay Kumar tweeted that the shooting for the film has been canned till the court takes a decision. Everyone involved in Housefull needs to take a firm stance on this issue. Following the allegations, Sajid Khan stepped down as the director of Housefull 4 on 12 October. The statement read, "In the wake of the allegations against me and the pressure being put on my family, my producer and the stars of Housefull 4, I must take the moral responsibility of stepping down from my directorial post, 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. She also said the filmmaker has targeted many girls and it's time to speak about it. Later he briefly met the media and said: "My lawyer has asked me to not talk to any channel, have to listen to him". Saloni also wrote that Sajid would often call her at odd hours and ask her what she's wearing and has eaten or ask for her bikini pictures to analyze for her acting career. Mr Patekar sent the actress a legal notice.
When Saloni Chopra first got interviewed for the job of an AD (Assistant Director) for Sajid Khan's film, the man asked her about her sexual experience, of she's ever been sexually abused or she will ever get a breast job. Earlier this week, Ms Dutta filed an FIR against Mr Patekar at Mumbai's Oshiwara Police Station. Like Ms Chopra and Ms White, Ms Upadhyay also claimed that Sajid Khan started with "trash talk" and added he tried to forcibly kiss her.More news: Rishabh Pant breaks into Indian ODI team after runs in Tests
