The rise in the number of people opening up about sexual assault with #MeToo, almost every other day a new name is getting added to the offenders’ list. This time it’s Bollywood director Sajid Khan who is now under the pressure after three women from media and Bollywood have called him out for sexually harassing them.

Houseful 4 Shoot

It is confirmed that Akshay Kumar has canceled the shoot of ‘Housefull 4’ after director Sajid Khan’s sexual assault allegations have come to light. The actor has never canceled any of his shoots for the movies ever but after these allegations, he has taken a stand.

The three women who have called out the Bollywood director are actress Rachel White, assistant director Saloni Chopra and journalist Karishma Upadhyay. Saloni Chopra shared her harrowing story on Twitter with the masses.  Saloni stated how Sajid had said that casting couch was never a one-time thing and she had to be Director’s Assistant and not an Assistant Director.  She shared her story on the Medium website where she called him out for sexually assaulting her almost 7 years ago.
