Saloni said that he flashed his private parts to her while Karishma said that he forcibly tried to kiss when she went to his place for an interview. As the #MeToo campaign echoed in South India too, actor-politician Kamal Haasan said men accused of sexual harassment should respond to the allegations.
In the wake of #MeToo movement, filmmaker Sajid Khan has stepped down as the director of Housefull 4 after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct. 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.
Akshay has clearly stated that he requested the producers of the film to cancel the shoot until further investigation.

It was also the first time that Netherlands have defeated Germany by a margin of three or more goals. Ryan Babel's header from a corner crashed against the crossbar and Van Dijk converted the rebound.
Earlier this week, Sajid Khan was named and shamed in separate #MeToo accounts by three women. Actress Saloni Chopra, his former assistant, described several incidents of personal abuse and said working with Khan was the "most very bad time of her life".
Farah on Friday tweeted: "This is a heartbreaking time for my family". One amongst them was Bipasha Basu.
Actor Ajay Devgn tweeted that his company believes in treating women with the utmost respect and safety. "It was just his general attitude towards women that would disturb me on set- he cracked lewd jokes openly and was pretty rude to all girls", she tweeted.
Though it's great that Bollywood is speaking up about incidents, there is an eerie silence at the top. "I don't know how but he will have to find a way to atone for his alleged actions", Mr. Akhtar wrote. But, are we ever going to come around to punishing these power abusers sooner than later. Even actor Akshay Kumar, halted the shoot because of the fiasco.
