Housefull director Sajid Khan was accused by not one but many women of sexually harassing them on social media on Thursday night. Ever since then the industry has been left numbed with the details that have been swarming the internet. Sajid in a statement has said that he is stepping down as the director of Housefull 4 starring Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon among others and would only come back once the truth is known. 

His sister and filmmaker-choreographer Farah Khan has now reacted to the allegations saying it is a heartbreaking time for her family. She wrote, "This is a heartbreaking time for my family.We have to work through some very difficult issues. If my brother has behaved in this manner he has a lot to atone for.I don’t in any way endorse this behavior and Stand in solidarity with any woman who has been hurt."

Earlier in the day, Akshay Kumar said that he has asked the producer of the movie Housefull 4 to stall the film till the allegations aren't proven or acquitted. Farhan Akhtar, who is a good friend of Sajid, also said that he is apalled, shocked and disturbed with the news and that he has no idea how Sajid is going to atone this if true. Another name to have come to the radar is that of Luv Ranjan who has also been accused of sexual harassment. Ajay Devgn in a tweet said that he will not work with anyone who has wronged even a single woman.

She’s his sibling, they have a very close relationship, are you saying she wouldn’t have known? She would have definitely, maybe she didn’t know how far he took it, but then again everyone knows Bollyweird is full of liars, perpetuators and backstabbers..it’s just hard and maddening to read her tweets regarding this matter..where the hell is her good for nothing hubby who’s always ways ranting about mundane things on Twitter..not a peep from him!

Farah should be banned from Bollywood along with her pervert brother.

C'mon...let's give her the benefit of doubt. Maybe she didn't know Sajid could go so far...
Keep the energies focused on perpetrators...

Farhan & Farha’s statement are so much alike!! It’s like a rehearsed PR agency answer!! Both have used the word stone & the term stand in solidarity!! The EXACT SAME WORDS!

True! Seems like a standard response was given to both of them so that they can post it in twitter and wash their hands off from any further queries.

please, they knew and hoped it'd stay a secret. it's impossible that a woman as well connected as farah didn't know what her brother has been upto for yeaars.

How will Farhan and Farah let their kidsspend alone time with such a pervert. How about Akshay, will he allow Nitara to play with Sajid?

This the height of hypocrisy!!! Surely Farah and the entire Bollywood Brigade (Akshay, Twinkle, etc) knew and endorsed Sajid’s behavior. Now that #timesup, you have to say something to save your own hides. There are many more skeletons that will come tumbling out!!

"Ajay Devgn in a tweet said that he will not work with anyone who has wronged even a single woman."

LOL, the irony. That means one.)you can't work with 95% of Btown and two.) you can't work with yourself.

Farhan is not just a 'good friend' of Sajid's - they are also first cousins are their mothers are sisters.

LOL!! This has to be the biggest joke of the decade!! Dear Farah, take several seats. You are not needed to stand with anyone.

This kind of behviour is almost always an open secret. I am surprised Farah and Farhan didn't know.

Of course they knew. They have to act surprised now and act like they didn’t know because otherwise they will look like enablers, which they clearly are. Pathetic.

They know. They just taught it would remain a Bollywood secret

Exactly. Somehow I wouldn't be surprised if Farah is also a predator herself. She, like her brother gives of those vibes.
