After Being Dropped From Housefull 4, #MeToo Accused Sajid Khan Trying To Return With A John Abraham Starrer?
Sajid Khan is trying hard to revive his career which went for a toss last year, after he was called out in the #MeToo campaign, which froth up quite a few other names as well. Sajid was then directing Housefull 4 and had been asked to step down (by producer Sajid Nadiadwala) when the allegations made against him made headlines. Rachel White, Saloni Chopra and Karisma Upadhyay had complained against him, with details.

Buzz now is, Sajid is meeting Firoz Nadiadwala frequently. The closed door meetings revolve around the talk of Sajid helming Awara Paagal Deewana 2. Sajid is very keen that he comes back into the mainstream.

FYI, was the FIRST to bring you that John Abraham is likely to star in APD 2, and not just that, Firoz Nadiadwala has (almost) cast him even for Welcome 3 and Welcome 4. That's good going for Abraham who is doing quite well for himself especially after Satyamev Jayate and Batla House.

The host-turned-director has been asked by the Indian Film And Television Directors’ Association (IFTDA) to show cause against the sexual harassment allegations made by certain women against him. After some days,  IFTDA received a reply from him: "I apologise to IFTDA if any embarrassment has been caused to the association by the alleged accusation against me. These allegations have not only caused irreparable harm to my career, but more importantly, grieved my mother and sister immensely. At the outset, I deny the complaints levelled against me as stated in your notice. I humbly request you to not to form any one-sided judgement. I am always happy to extend any cooperation to my association,” said Sajid, as reported by Bombay Times.

On the other hand, President of IFTDA, Ashoke Pandit, had told BT,, “Four complaints were received by us against Sajid Khan, which the ICC committee felt were serious. Hence, it was important to hear his side also before taking any decision. IFTDA and its mother body FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees) have taken up this issue seriously.

IFTDA had also met Sajid personally. The meeting went on for one-and-a-half hours in the presence of Bhavna Talwar, Ashoke Pandit and 2 senior lawyers. The meeting was largely presided over by ace lawyer Mrunalini Deshmukh. Sajid had maintained throughout the meeting that he is innocent.
