Three women-actresses Rachel White, Saloni Chopra and journalist Karishma Upadhyay have levelled allegations against him for his sexual advances and molestation. They have accused him of inappropriate behaviour as the filmmaker is said to pull his p***s out and instruct them to strip for him.

Sajid's sister Farah Khan has also came out on social media to condemn such sexual misconduct, joined by Akshay Kumar who pulled off from the shooting of 'Housefull 4' in relation of filmmaker sajid's involvement in sexual harassments.

Akshay urged producers of the film to cancel the shoot till further investigation against Sajid.

With in few minutes of Akshay's post Sajid responded on twitter stating that he is stepping down as the director of the film till the time he can allay the allegations and prove the truth.

Interestingly, 'Housefull 4' also stars another accused of sexual harassment Nana Patekar, who has been accused by Tanushree Dutta after 10 years for sexual harassment on the sets of movie 'Horn Ok Please'.

Tanushree can be called the 'Flag Bearer' of #MeToo movement in Indian film Industry.
