In the wake of India’s #MeToo movement, actor Akshay Kumar cancelled the shoot of his work-in-progress film ‘Housefull 4’, in which he co-starred with Nana Patekar, whom actress Tanushree Dutta accused of sexual misconduct. ‘Housefull 4’ is directed by Sajid Khan, who was recently implicated in the #MeToo allegations by three women. On Friday, Akshay, who recently returned from a family holiday, shared this statement on Twitter: “I have just landed back in the country last night and reading all the news has been very disturbing. I’ve requested the producers of ‘Housefull 4’ to cancel the shoot until further investigation.
