After Aamir Khan, another actor to take a stand against sexual harassment is Akshay Kumar. Last night, Sajid Khan, who is the director of Housefull 4 was accused by a journalist Karishma Upadhyay made a revelation of sexual misconduct against him which was followed by more allegations by actresses Saloni Chopra and Rachel White. Now, as the news has left everyone startled, Akshay Kumar is also taking a stand against it.

Akshay, a while ago, took to Twitter to share that he was not in the country and he is disturbed ever since he has heard the news of sexual harassment against Sajid Khan. He has urged the producers to stop the shoot of the film until further investigation is done. Check out his tweet.

The actor was tight-lipped about the whole issue for a long time. In fact, he was called out in the past by Tanushree Dutta for working with Nana Patekar despite her allegations of sexual misconduct against him. But, now the actor has taken a stand and has said that he won't be working with any proven offenders.

Tanushree Dutta can be called the torchbearer of the Indian MeToo movement since she was the first one to reveal about the sexual misconduct that she had to go through during the shoot of Horn Ok Pleasss by Nana Patekar who was helped by Ganesh Acharya. After her allegations, many women - celebs and non-celebs have opened up about actors, producers and directors harassing them sexually and mentally.

As of now, Nana Patekar, Sajid Khan, Vivek Agnihotri, Subhash Kapoor, Chetan Bhagat, Rajat Kapoor, and many more are accused of sexual harassment by women.
