In the wake of India's #MeToo movement, actor Akshay Kumar cancelled the shoot of his work-in-progress film Housefull 4, in which he co-starred with Nana Patekar, whom actress Tanushree Dutta accused of sexual misconduct. Housefull 4 is directed by Sajid Khan, who was recently implicated in the #MeToo allegations by three women. On Friday, Akshay, who recently returned from a family holiday, shared this statement on Twitter: "I have just landed back in the country last night and reading all the news has been very disturbing. I've requested the producers of Housefull 4 to cancel the shoot until further investigation.
