Last week, director Sajid Khan was accused of sexual assault by three women out of whom one is an assistant director Saloni Chopra. Recently with the ongoing Me Too movement, stringent actions have been taken against the accused. Similarly, post the allegations, Sajid was replaced by another director for 'Housefull 4'.

His sister, choreographer-director Farah Khan recently commented on the extant movement and said, 

“I am against fear psychosis for anybody whether it is for a woman or for a man who is talking to a girl and getting scared that should I be talking like this. We want to have to have a happy positive environment, so that is most important. The only thing I fear are the quick judgments and the quick punishments that are meted out through trial by Twitter which is happening in hours. Even in Hollywood they take their time, they do their research, they do an investigation. They interview friends and family, whether it is 20 years ago or 10 years ago- they investigate. So that is a bit scary for everybody.”


Earlier last week when Said Khan was accused of sexual assault, his sister Farah backed the movement and had said that if Sajid was guilty then he would have to face the repercussions. She even poured support for the victims that were allegedly harassed.
