After the stepdown of Sajid Khan due to MeeTo, Fahad Samji will become Director of Housefull 4. “Housefull 3 director Farhad Samji will now direct Housefull 4,” a spokesperson for production banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment told.
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.
