Dia Mirza supports journalist who accused Sajid Khan of sexual harassment


He further mentioned that this is something which requires a stringent action.

And now, in response to these allegations, Sajid Khan has issued the following statement on Twitter, annoucing his stepping down as director for the currently underway Housefull 4.

Twinkle Khanna also reacted to accusations against Sajid and tweeted, "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through. This can not go on", Twinkle Khanna tweeted. Following the allegations, Sajid Khan stepped down as the director of Housefull 4 on 12 October. In a post on Twitter, Sajid said he was taking the "moral responsibility" to step down till he can clear his name of the allegations. 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 wrote that 'it's been 7 years, and it's about time I said it out loud'. While Akshay immediately took off for a vacation with his wife Twinkle Khanna and their daughter Nitara, actor Nana Patekar announced a press conference to address the allegations pressed against him by Ms Dutta.

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

She recalls how petrified she was whenever Sajid would call her for work.

This user asked Farhan Akhtar to take a stand against his cousin Sajid Khan and doubted whether he would do it, as the #MeToo movement has come into his own family circle. He asked her to send him bikini photos as he wanted to check how she looked if she ever wanted to become an actor.

Journalist Karishma Upadhyay also shared a story about her encounter with Sajid Khan and said that when she interviewed him in the early 2000s at his house, he talked about how large his penis is and how he knows how to satisfy women.

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.
