The renewed #MeToo movement spurred by Tanushree Dutta has encouraged many women to come out and speak about the horrific incidents they’ve gone through at the hands of some powerful men. Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath, Rajat Kapoor, Subhash Ghai were some of the many B-Town celebrities that have been accused of their sexually predatory behaviours.
Among these, another shocking name made an appearance when writer Saloni Chopra accused Sajid Khan of heinous sexually inappropriate behaviour. While Sajid Khan is yet to reply to these allegations, the lead actor of his next Housefull installment, Akshay Kumar has already asked the producers to cancel further shoot until further investigation.
