In the last two weeks, since the time Tanushree Dutta came out with details of harassment she faced on the sets of a 2008 film, Horn OK Pleassss, at the hands of veteran actor Nana Patekar, scores of women have spoken up in what is being seen as India's #MeToo. "I will not work with any proven offenders and all those who have been subjugated to harrasment should be heard and given the justice they deserve".
Akshay Kumar's wife Twinkle Khanna also tweeted: "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through. This can not go on", Twinkle Khanna tweeted. Informing about the same on Twitter, Akshay Kumar has mentioned in his post that has just returned from Itlay and has cancelled the shoot the shoot of Housefull 4 until further investigation. Following the allegations, Sajid Khan stepped down as the director of Housefull 4 on 12 October. Rachel commented on Saloni's tweet writing, "I believe you @redheadchopra." and went on to share what she had to go through in a series of tweets thereafter.

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".
