Apart from Akshay Kumar, Twinkle Khanna also tweeted about the matter, stating that the incidents she has heard have been horrific and that all people involved with Housefull 4 should take a "firm stance".

Sajid Khan has stepped down as the director of Housefull 4, as revealed by a tweet the director shared.

Akshay Kumar also recently tweeted his decision to cancel any further shoots of Housefull 4 until further investigation, following sexual harassment allegations against director Sajid Khan by three women.

Meanwhile, Twinkle Khanna, who has been known to take a strong standpoint on feminist issues, also recently tweeted on the matter, urging all those who are working in the upcoming Sajid Khan film, Housefull 4, to speak up and take a "firm stance".

Following actress Tanushree Dutta's allegations against Nana Patekar of sexual harassment and aggressive behaviour on the sets of 2008 film Horn OK Pleassss, many well known personalities have come out in support of Tanushree. Her statement brought a flurry of similar claims by actresses and media personalities who voiced their #MeToo accounts. Noted artistes like Alok Nath, Vairamuthu, Vikas Bahl, Chetan Bhagat and others have been named. Twinkle had voiced her support of Tanushree earlier, when she tagged Janice Sequeira's Twitter thread (corroborating Dutta's claims), stating that more people should read it, as a safe working environment for women was a fundamental right.
