Bollywood superstar cancels film shoot over #MeToo allegations against director

India’s #MeToo Moment Roils Entertainment, Media Industries

Sajid Khan has been accused of sexually harassing a journalist.

Sajid himself addressed the accusations, and stepped down as director of "Housefull 4".

Many Bollywood celebs have also reacted to the reports about Sajid Khan's sexual misconduct.

In a move that came as a complete shocker and also an eye-opener to the film fraternity, Superstar Akshay Kumar has chose to cancel the shooting of his upcoming film "Housefull 4". I think women are responsible enough to not do that.

Sajid's sister Farah Khan, also a filmmaker, described the entire episode as "heartbreaking". Initially, I wanted to find a way to not work on that show.

Union minister Maneka Gandhi said that cases of sexual harassment at work must be "dealt with a policy of zero tolerance". "This can not go on".

Some Indian actresses have long said that the industry, which is dominated by a few powerful players, needs to create an environment where victims can come forward without fear of being ostracised. Saloni said that he flashed his private parts to her while Karishma said that he forcibly tried to kiss when she went to his place for an interview. With you in support.

The second woman to have accused Seth is 33-year-old journalist Mandakini Gahlot, who narrated an incident that involved Seth at a policymakers' retreat that was held in Goa in July 2011. He cracked lewd jokes openly and was pretty rude to all girls. I'll never forget what he said to me, 'You are fatter than you used to be. Everyone knows I dissociated from the film for exactly this reason. "I takes so much of courage to go against your loved ones and family members in public discourse. salute for that. but make sure a fair investigation take place to the caste & justice and truth may prevail".
