Saloni said that when she had started working with Sajid Khan, he used to refer her as director's assistant and not assistant director which meant that she had to do his work directly. He said that this requires stringent action and hence he will not work with any proven sex offenders. "Request my friends in the media to kindly not pass judgment till the truth is out", he tweeted.

Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, Housefull 4 was set to release around Diwali 2019.

Earlier today, Twinkle Khanna shared on Twitter, "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through".

She urges that everyone involved with Housefull 4 take a firm stance on the matter and says that this sort of behaviour can not go on. 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. "This can not go on", she wrote on Twitter.

Australia's central bank governor said in August an influx of new residents had helped to underpin strong economic growth. However, he added: "I'm not sure its legally viable".

When she pleaded and asked him what it is that he wanted from her, "he said he wants me to do everything he tells me to".

Famed Indian actor Akshay Kumar has cancelled the shooting of his upcoming film "Housefull 4" scheduled to take place today, after sexual harassment allegations were levelled against co-actor Nana Patekar and director Sajid Khan. "Right after my agency told me about the meeting Sajid called me within the next 5 mins and said the meeting would be at his house opp iskon Juhu". The actress had alleged that during her initial days in the film industry, she had worked as an assistant director to Sajid and that's when the filmmaker abused her. Only recently Aamir Khan made a decision to walk out of Mogul considering its director Subhash Kapoor is fighting a sexual harassment case by actress Geetika Tyagi.

Khan's announcement came in the wake of allegations of misconduct and harassment by journalist Karishma Upadhyay and actress Saloni Chopra. Retweeting Chopra's tweet, she explained that during the making of Humshakals, Sajid asked her to come to his home, stared at her breasts and asked her to strip on the pretext that her role in the film required her to be in a bikini. After a while, he asked her to spread legs, to which the actress refused.
