  • Twitter says'Shame on you Sajid Khan after more women accuse him of sexual misconduct

Chopra in a blog post wrote about having suffered at the hands of "Sajid Khan, Zain Durrani, and Vikas Bahl".

Three women - a journalist, and two actors - have accused Sajid Khan of sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour, detailing their accounts on social media.

After she had joined the job regardless, Sajid Khan told her that more than an assistant director, she was HIS assistant.

When she finally confronted him and asked what he wanted from her, he said he wants to make her his b****, writes Saloni. Twitterati are questioning the veracity of Farah's claim that means she didn't know about his brother's behaviour towards women. The actor has tweeted his statement after his wife Twinkle Khanna raised questions.

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".

Farhan Akhtar, Sajid's cousin, has also expressed "shock" and "disappointment" over the allegations.

Reacting to harassment allegation on her brother, Farah Khan said that "if my brother has behaved in this manner he has a lot to atone for". On October 10, Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao backed out from producing the T-Series film on Gulshan Kumar, titled Mogul, because the director Subhash Kapoor had been accused of attempted rape by actress Geetika Tyagi.

She added that she had to work with him again while she was working with a music channel.

Amid the rising number of cases and accounts in this wave, actor Ajay Devgn tweeted: "I'm disturbed by all the happenings with regards to #MeToo". "Please read this thread before judging or shaming #TanushreeDutta a working environment without harassment and intimidation is a fundamental right and by speaking up this fearless woman helps pave the way towards that very goal for all of us", she had tweeted.

Pink actress Taapsee Pannu tweeted: "More than the names it's the description of the way things happened is what is disturbing me the most".

The actress confirmed that he was never rude to her on the sets. Actor Ranveer Singh too came out in support of #MeToo.
