Farhad Samji replaces Sajid Khan as director of Housefull 4
The latter stepped down as the film's director on Friday as multiple women came out to share their #MeToo experiences with him
Farhad Samji will take over the reins as director of Housefull 4 after Sajid Khan stepped down from the role amid sexual misconduct allegations against him.
"Housefull 3 director Farhad Samji will now direct Housefull 4," said a spokesperson for production banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment on Saturday.
Sajid stepped down as the film's director on Friday as multiple women came out to share their #MeToo experiences with him.
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar cancelled the film's shoot until further investigation as even co-actor Nana Patekar has been accused of sexual harassment by Tanushree Dutta in an incident dating back to 2008.
"This is something that requires stringent action. I will not work with any proven offenders and all those who have been subjugated to harassment should be heard and given the justice they deserve," Akshay had said on Friday.
