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. This can not go on", Twinkle Khanna tweeted.

Well, seems like Tanushree Dutta has opened a can of worms after levelling sexual abuse allegations against Nana Patekar.

Shortly after, Akshay released a statement in which he announced that he has requested the producers of Housefull 4 to cancel the shoot until the allegations against Sajid are investigated. He further mentioned that this is something which requires a stringent action. 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. His harassment continued and Saloni writes about an incident where he asked her to lift a skirt of a girl who was playing a role in his movie; he insulted her and commented that how did she think she would become an actress without having any breasts or ass. Now, the new name that is added to the list is the popular filmmaker Sajid Khan.

An actress, known as Saloni Chopra, had levelled serious allegations of sexual misconduct and torture against Sajid in a long post, published on Medium website.

Sajid Khan's assistant Saloni Chopra took to Instagram to share her harassment experience that took place in 2011 when she interviewed for Sajid Khan's assistant director's position. She told in a series of tweets that he asked her to strip down to bikini and even asked her to seduce him in 5 mins at his home.

After she had joined the job regardless, Sajid Khan told her that more than an assistant director, she was HIS assistant.

The ongoing avalanche of sexual assault claims being made against men in the entertainment industry, including filmmakers Subhash Ghai and Vikas Bahl, actors Rajat Kapoor and Alok Nath, comedians Gursimran Khamba and Utsav Chakraborty, have led to more women calling out sexism and sexual misconduct. On her Twitter page, Karishma Upadhyay shared what happened with her when she interviewed Sajid Khan in early 2000s.
