The #MeToo movement in India has garnered a heated momentum over the past few weeks. While many Bollywood celebrities have been accused of sexual harassment, there are many new names adding to the list daily. The movement has given a courage to many women to take a stand against sexual harassment and voice their sufferings. Names such as Nana Patekar, Rajat Kapoor, Aloknath, Subhash Ghai, Bhushan Kumar, and Sajid Khan, among others have been highlighted.
The MeToo movement in India initiated when Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment. Since then, many have shared their personal stories on social media. Owing to this allegation, Nana departed from acting in the film Housefull 4.
According to a report published in Pinkvilla, the filmmakers are looking up to Sanjay Dutt and Anil Kapoor as potential replacements for Nana Patekar.
If the reports are any true, then there's a laughter riot on its way for the audiences!
Allegations against Sajid Khan by three women recently surfaced which resulted in him stepping down from being the film’s director as well. Sajid was replaced by Farhad Samji, director of Housefull 3, who will now direct the fourth movie from the Housefull franchise.
The Sajid Nadiadwala produced film will feature Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, and Kriti Sanan in prominent roles. Housefull 4 is slated to hit the theatres on October 26, 2019.
