Aamir Khan too quit a movie, Mogul, after allegations emerged against its director. While, Patekar is yet to comment on the issue openly, he has denied the allegations.

In a post on Twitter, Sajid said he was taking the "moral responsibility" to step down till he can allay the allegations. She also called out her ex-lover Zain Durrani and filmmaker Vikas Bahl for being sexist. "He would ask me to touch his dick and get irritated with me when I said I didn't want to", she wrote in a blog post.

She added that she had to work with him again while she was working with a music channel. In a tweet, the journalist accused Sajid Khan of exposing his genitalia to her. I was so exhausted of the calls and the constant harassment, I asked him what he wanted from me. She finally quit but he threatened her to end her career.

The actor also said that he would call her at odd hours justifying it by saying " the industry never sleeps and work happens at all hours... except he wasn't talking about work" and make inappropriate talk on the phone and in person.

After the article emerged, Housefull 4 lead actor Akshay Kumar walked out of the film.

Farhan Akhtar also clarified that he supports the survivors, and that Khan will have to 'find a way to atone for his alleged actions'. The director tweeted a short while ago that in the "wake of the allegations & the pressure on his family" he had made a decision to step down from directing the film.




When she pleaded and asked him what it is that he wanted from her, "he said he wants me to do everything he tells me to".

Who would've thought that the maker of many blockbuster comedy films, Sajid Khan, is actually a sexual abuser.

Earlier in the day, Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna had tweeted that "everyone involved" in the film - which includes her husband - needed to take a firm stand on this harassment issue women in India are subjected to. Some of the biggest stars are yet to speak up.

However, the initiated was taken by our film industry i.e. Bollywood where a number of women have spoken about their experiences on Twitter under #MeToo movement.

YourStory spoke to Janice Sequeira, a former film journalist with Times Now. While the world was just reeling from the shock of knowing Subhash Ghai been accused of drugging and raping an upcoming actress, three women have claimed sexual harassment at the hands of director-producer, Sajid Khan. After going through many disgusting situations and circumstances, Saloni quit the job.
