Bobby Deol, who will next be seen in the upcoming film Housefull 4, has now talked about #MeToo movement and how the allegations on Sajid Khan did not much affect the shoot. He also spoke at length about how this stand taken by the public has helped a lot of people
Housefull 4, the fourth film in the Housefull franchise is all set to hit the theatres on October 25. The film had earlier been directed by Sajid Khan, but he was soon replaced by Farhad Samji after he was accused of sexual harassment. Now, with only four days to go for the film to release, Bobby Deol, who also stars in Housefull 4, has addressed the #MeToo movement and spoke at length about how this stand taken by the public has helped a lot of people.
Bobby Deol, who will next be seen in Housefull 4, told PTI that he does not know anyone’s personal life but if things come out and are proved, it should be dealt with in the right way. He added, “And this works for both men and women because in the world we live, there a lot of stories about women troubling men which do not come out and vice-versa.” However, he believes that this stand has helped people going through tough times and also said that the work environment is becoming safer and happier. Speaking about the #MeToo allegations on Sajid Khan and how it affected Housefull 4, Bobby Deol said, "Only one-day shooting got delayed and the decision was made by the studios and Sajid Nadiadwala."

Bobby Deol further added about the importance of social media in voicing their opinions and said that while a lot of things had been going on in our country, earlier people did not have the medium to voice the issues. “Now because of social media and so many ways of voicing your opinion or what you are going through has helped a lot of people. It is something people should use in the right way. That is how it should be."
