In the wake of the ongoing wave of #MeToo movement in India, a number of burried skeletons have been dug up. One of the several Bollywood celebs who have been accused of sexual harassment include director Sajid Khan, who has been called out on Twitter by three women – two actresse and a journalist, for sexual misconduct. The filmmaker’s alleged actions as exposed on social media have left the denizens in shock. Ever since Saloni Chopra, Rachel White and a journalist shared their harrowing experience with Sajid Khan, Twitterati has been going berserk, blasting him for his alleged sexual misconduct.
The Tweeple aren’t just lashing out against Sajid Khan, but also dragging his sister Farah Khan, cousin brother Farhan Akhtar (who had earlier stood up for Tanushree Dutta and tweeted in support of her, saying that he believes her story against Nana Patekar) and actress Twinkle Khanna, who had also come out in support of Tanushree.
While some of the netizens are asking if Farhan will take a similar stand against his own cousin Sajid Khan, others are questioning Twinkle Khanna for maintaining cordial relations with Sajid and asking her if her husband Akshay Kumar will continue to work with Sajid (the duo is currently filming Housefull 4).
Check out some of the tweets right here:

Useless rotten unskilled buffoons like #SajidKhan who thrived on nepotism and zero talent while getting their way is the very definition of Bollywood privilege for ‘Star families’.The guy is not qualified to be a rag picker. https://t.co/RZIXdWhvQt

Wonder what @TheFarahKhan has to say about what her disgusting brother @SimplySajidK has been up to? He’s a filthy and vile human being that needs to be punished for taking advantage of so many women and being verbally and sexually abusive. Disgusting! #SajidKhan #MeTooIndia

Would be very disappointed if @akshaykumar @Riteishd etc. don’t take a stand against #SajidKhan Making movies on topics of women for business & awards, & actually taking a stand for them are 2 different aspects of Bollywood, is what I’ve learnt… Let’s see who really cares…

Dear @mrsfunnybones why cant you ask your husband and a great actor who is also a great patriot and a great crusader to stop working with a creep and predator like #Sajidkhan . Probably he wont because everybody know this man still they worked for him. https://t.co/QmqatkLi3w

Haha. So you’re telling me all these stories are news to you.
In short, you had no idea of these happenings within the Bollywood ecosystem.
I hope you ask your husband to not work with #sajidkhan ? https://t.co/7qX5cbn1kD

Hey @akshaykumar, #SajidKhan is a monster. If you still continue working with him in #Housefull4, it shows how much you care about women safety. Making videos is easy, taking tough decisions not. Leave the project.

#SajidKhan – the worst thing happened to film industry !!! Shakti Kapoor looks like a Sanskari ( not the Aloknath type) in front of him..

Sajid Khan has not responded to any of the allegations made against him till now. We’ll have to wait and watch how the filmmaker reacts to the accusations made against him.
