Akshay Kumar's Housefull 4 has featured in headlines in the past weeks after allegations of sexual misconduct poured in against Sajid Khan. Mr Khan has been named and shamed by three women, following which he resigned as the director last week. Mr Khan's resignation arrived within hours of Akshay Kumar's tweet, in which he said he cancelled the film's shoot till further investigation against the alleged abusers. Farhad Samji has now been roped in to helm the movie. However, Team Housefull 4 were shooting in Jaisalmer when Tanushree Dutta revived the decade old controversy, alleging Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of a film in 2008. Mr Patekar has also quit Housefull 4 citing 'convenience of everybody.'
While Akshay Kumar has taken a stand by choosing to not work with the alleged harassers, he has been 'seconded' by his Housefull 4 co-star Riteish Deshmukh. Kriti Sanon, who also stars in the film, was recently criticised for appearing to suggest that anonymous allegations of misconduct not be treated or reported as genuine.
The cast of Housefull 4 also includes names such as Bobby Deol, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde. Akshay Kumar also has films such as Kesari, Good News and Rajinikanth's 2.0 in the pipeline.
