On Friday, Akshay Kumar put his weight behind the #MeToo campaign and had asked the producers of ' Housefull 4' to "cancel the shoot until further investigation".

Amid #MeToo allegations against Director Sajid Khan just emerged out, Bollywood Actor Akshay Kumar who has recently returned to India after having a wonderful family holiday has canceled his shooting for Housefull 4.

Stringent action should be taken against the offenders, Kumar said in a brief statement posted on Twitter. He went on to add that the pressure has also been on his family and the producer of Housefull 4 and taking moral responsibility, he has made a decision to take the major step. The journalist further wrote that she again met Sajid for work, but forewarned him of his behaviour. Sajid, who was the director of the film, too had issued a statement saying he was stepping down as the director of the film.

After Race 3 actress Saloni Chopra openly slammed filmmaker Sajid Khan for sexually harassing her, another journalist came forward and shared her encounter with the filmmaker.

Reflecting on his display after being substituted late on, Bolt told Fox Sports: "It was my first proper game with the first team. I've just got to continue learning and getting better".

She faced repeated harassment and Sajid Khan always passed comments like she wasn't sexy enough or didn't have enough "oomph". He wrote on Twitter, "Deeply disturbing to hear and read the news of so many women who had to go through these incidents of harassment in various fields".

Akshay's wife and author Twinkle Khanna, who has been supporting the movement since Day 1, also urged the team to take a firm stance on this issue. "It's been 7 years, and it's about time I said it out loud", Saloni wrote in her post. And then we have actor Nana Patekar playing a crucial role in this film and he is also facing sexual harassment case from heroine Tanushree Dutta.

"After that he asks me to strip for him bcoz there were scenes in a bikini and he needed to see how I looked".

While Bipasha said she did not face any sort of direct harassment from Sajid, she decided Humshakals would be her last film with the director. 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 for defamation.
