After Aamir Khan, who took a step to quit a big project because of the involvement of director Subhash Kapoor, who was accused of sexual misconduct by Geetika Tyagi; actor Akshay Kumar too has now taken a huge step in support of the #MeToo movement.
The actor has asked director Sajid Khan to leave his next film, ‘Housefull 4′ as a director. It was recently that a few women came out in open about how Sajid made them uncomfortable on the sets or offsets of his films, due to his unethical antics.
Sajid has now stepped down as the director of ‘Housefull 4’. The decision was taken by producer Sajid Nadiadwala and Akshay Kumar in the interest of the film.
As soon as stories of harassment by Sajid Khan were out, Akshay’s wife Twinkle took to Twitter and wrote, “Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through. Everyone involved in Housefull needs to take a firm stance on this issue. This cannot go on.”
