Twinkle asks 'Housefull 4' cast, Akshay to take a stand

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Twinkle Khanna on Friday called on the cast and crew of  'Housefull 4' to take a "firm" stand on the multiple incidents of sexual harassment being reported on social media and said she was horrified by what women had to go through.

The actor's comments come after 'Housefull 4' director Sajid Khan was accused of sexual harassment by two women, according to PTI reports.

The comedy film features Nana Patekar, who has also been "outed" by actor Tanushree Dutta, as well Khanna's husband Akshay Kumar.

"Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through. Everyone involved in Housefull needs to take a firm stance on this issue. This cannot go on," she wrote on Twitter.

Khanna had earlier voiced support for Dutta, saying a healthy working environment is a fundamental right.

"Please read this thread before judging or shaming #TanushreeDutta a working environment without harassment and intimidation is a fundamental right and by speaking up this brave woman helps pave the way towards that very goal for all of us," she had tweeted.

Patekar has denied Dutta's allegations that he harassed her during a film shoot in 2008 and sent her a legal notice.

Khan has not yet responded to the allegations against him.

The cast of Housefull 4, produced by Sajid Nadiadwalla, also includes Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Sharad Kelkar, Pooja Hegde, Kriti Kharbanda and Kriti Sanon.

Meanwhile, actress Bipasha Basu said yesterday she was glad that women were opening up about their experiences with Sajid Khan, whose attitude towards female cast and crew members on the sets of a film disturbed her.

Sajid has been accused of sexual harassment by two women -- actor Saloni Chopra and a journalist.
