#MeToo: Did Nana Patekar quit Housefull 4?

#MeToo: Did Nana Patekar quit Housefull 4?

Sajid Khan's sister Farah Khan has responded to accusations of sexual harassment on the film-maker.

Talking to indianexpress.com, Bipasha Basu revealed it was because of Sajid's indecent behaviour that she chose to disassociate herself from the film. She added that the filmmaker was of the opinion that casting couch is more than sex. She mentions how he would say frightful things about his then girlfriend. That's when she said that she was ready to do so at his office, but not his home, to which he replied that people are okay about it, implying that she mustn't resist. Stay with him. Maybe he'll ask me to touch myself in front of him, maybe he'll want to record it. He further stated that he is taking the responsibility now and is doing the needful. Detailing her ordeal with Khan, she wrote, "This goes back to 2011.He was famous for his interview questions". He then, further went on to insult her that he couldn't get a boner with her because she was that unattractive, while touching his genitals again. In a long detailed post, the woman has alleged that the filmmaker used to humiliate her by telling her she isn't good looking and doesn't have in her that is needed to be an actress. In a series of tweets, Rachel narrated how Sajid told her to strip and seduce him in 5 mins.

Saloni threw the laptop and walked out of the room.

Seems like the list is never-ending of the predators that have sexually harassed and abused the ones with no power to cry out for help.

The ongoing movement #MeToo has created a stir in the Indian film industry and other business organizations. We're at a point where none of the names nor stories surprise us anymore, however this particular one got us disgusted and shocked! Many actresses have come out in support of the on-going movement.

The statement about Nana Patekar's exit from the project arrived hours after Sajid Khan - who was directing Housefull 4 - signed his resignation from the project on Twitter after being accused of sexual harassment by three women in individual #MeToo accounts.
