Sajid Khan is one of the Bollywood personalities to come in the whirlwind that is #MeToo and the reason was such that gave chills down the spine to many. From inappropriate misconduct to sexual harassment women have come out in open to name and shame the director for his alleged misdeeds.
Think became so nasty and unbearable that Sajid Khan had to be sacked from Housefull 4 that was all set to go on floors. Even Akshay Kumar had also issued a statement putting his foot down.

Following the same, even Sajid had stepped down as the director of the film in a statement that mentioned the kind of pressure his family have been put through. Now, we don’t know if they succumbed to it, but we are glad that both Farhan Akhtar and Farah Khan (cousin and sister) addressed the claims and said that, if true, he has a lot to atone for.
Earlier, she had responded to allegations against Sajid and had tweeted, “This is a heartbreaking time for my family. We have to work through some very difficult issues. If my brother has behaved in this manner he has a lot to atone for. I don’t in any way endorse this behaviour and Stand in solidarity with any woman who has been hurt.”

Today, Farah who recently attended a book launch in Mumbai has spoken at length about the issue. She said, “I have fear psychosis for anybody, whether it’s a woman or whether it is for a man who is talking to a girl… getting scared if should I be talking to a girl.”

She also confessed that she fears media trial and added, “The only thing I fear is the quick judgements and the quick punishments that are met out. Trial by Twitter which is happening in hours.”
