New Delhi: Bollywood filmmaker Sajid Khan on Thursday was accused by three for sexually abusing them. The women took to social media to share their horrific experiences. Sajid, who was directing 'Housefull 4', has now stepped down from his post and has asked people not to pass judgements until the truth is out.
Taking to Twitter, Farhan Akhtar wrote, "I cannot adequately stress how shocked, disappointed and heartbroken I am to read the stories about Sajid’s behaviour.
I don’t know how but he will have to find a way to atone for his alleged actions."

While Riteish Deshmukh who shared a great rapport with Sajid, took to Twitter and wrote, "Deeply disturbing to hear and read the news of so many women who had to go through these incidents of harassment in various fields. I think it is extremely brave of every woman to have shared their stories.. all need to be heard and not judged. I stand with them today. #MeToo. w.r.t Housefull 4, I second Akshay Kumar's stand."
