Sajid Khan accused of sexual harassment, Subhash Ghai accused of rape

"I believe in the pain and trauma behind every single complaint", the Minister for Women and Child Development, Maneka Gandhi, wrote in a tweet. 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. Doubling the allegations on the director, actress, and model Rachel White expressed her #metoo story.

Famed Indian actor Akshay Kumar has cancelled the shooting of his upcoming film "Housefull 4" scheduled to take place today, after sexual harassment allegations were levelled against co-actor Nana Patekar and director Sajid Khan.

It seems like Sajid has done a lot of wrong things with women but after these allegations on him, the filmmaker has not yet spoken or reacted to it. While, Patekar is yet to comment on the issue openly, he has denied the allegations.

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

The minister for women and child development said her ministry had established itself as a safe platform to address their complaints. His wife, author and columnist Twinkle Khanna too spoke out against Sajid Khan in a tweet.

A source has told The Times of India that he made a decision to exit after Akshay Kumar issued a statement saying he will not work with proven sexual offenders.

The editor of a leading newspaper, Times of India, K.R. Sreenivas, has been sent on leave pending an investigation after several women accused him of making sexual propositions. She further said, "said 'I'm ready to parade your office in a bikini, but not at home". "In Gujarat, we had a free environment under the Narendra bhai regime, so women could complain immediately", she added.

Nanda told reporters the movement taking place is "very encouraging, very enabling and this is the reason why I have brought it up". Ever since then, a large number of women from various walks of life have come out with their stories.

Nana Patekar has been accused of sexual harassment by actress Tanushree Dutta, who revealed her ordeal in an interview to Zoom at the end of September 2018.
