Twitter says'Shame on you Sajid Khan after more women accuse him of sexual misconduct

And now, in response to these allegations, Sajid Khan has issued the following statement on Twitter, annoucing his stepping down as director for the currently underway Housefull 4. Three women have spoken about the harassment they faced at the hands of Sajid.

His assistant then, Saloni Chopra, shared on her Instagram story that it was in 2011 she interviewed with Sajid Khan for the position of his assistant director.

Bollywood's tales of Me Too are getting murkier by the day. I was so scared around the people I worked with.

Rachel has also spoken at length about her trauma in a series of tweets. Among other allegations, Ms White said that Mr Khan told her she could get a role in his film (he was casting for 2014 film Humshakals) if she could "seduce him in 5 minutes". "What about that? That is the question I am asking and how much of that support is genuine because it doesn't result in any kind of disciplinary action". "I didn't bother to answer to anything". I replied saying "there are pics of me in bikinis sent to u, I think that should good for u" n wen he insisted I said "I'm ready to parade ur office in a binkini nt at home". In a tweet, the journalist accused Sajid Khan of exposing his genitalia to her. "Thru the interview he talked about how large his penis is & how he knew how to satisfy a woman".

This decision comes after Weinstein's lawyers argued that there are legal problems with the criminal case against him. Weinstein, there is a rush to judgment, which is offensive to the concept of fairness and due process", Brafman said.

"A few years later, I had to work with Sajid when I was at MTV". At the end of the first meeting, I forewarned him about behaving himself.

"He said he wants me to do everything he tells me to. I won't touch you with a barge pole.' And then he laughed".

Director of hit films like "Housefull" and "Heyy Baby", Sajid Khan was earlier accused of sexual misconduct in a chilling post shared by his former assistant director Saloni Chopra.

The ongoing avalanche of sexual assault claims being made against men in the entertainment industry, including filmmakers Subhash Ghai and Vikas Bahl, actors Rajat Kapoor and Alok Nath, comedians Gursimran Khamba and Utsav Chakraborty, have led to more women calling out sexism and sexual misconduct. A journalist accused Sajid of sexual harassment on October 11 and the news has left everyone in shock.
