Sajid Khan was called out for sexual misconduct by his former assistant, Saloni Chopra. Post that Rachel White and Bipasha Basu too spoke about his misbehaviour. The filmmaker’s sister, Farah Khan and cousin Farhan Akhtar confessed that they are ‘heartbroken’ after these allegations. However, Aisha actress has gone ahead to say that it comes as a surprise that Sajid’s family knew nothing about his misdoings.

 She wrote, "It was fairly well known that @SimplySajidK is a creep and is completely inappropriate as far as his conduct with women goes. I was warned to stay away from him if I ever came across him. I refuse to believe that it has come as a surprise to ppl from the industry or his family (sic)."

Farhan reverted by saying, "I deeply resent your insinuation that me or my family knew of his behaviour yet did nothing. Your anger is justified. Your conspiracy theories not. @_Amrita_Puri (sic)."

Amrita was unaware of Farhan being related to Sajid. She took to social media to apologize later. She wrote, "My tweet was not directed to you. Are you related? Pardon my ignorance. Also it’s not fair to generalise as I did. My apologies. However @SimplySajidK’s misconducts were fairly well known. I’m surprised that it’s come as a shock (sic).

Not just Farhan, even his girlfriend Shibani Dandekar is on a mission on Twitter to tell people that the family didn't know anything about Sajid's actions and they should not be shamed just for being a part of his family. Shibani's first post on the matter read, "Instead of holding the culprit responsible for gross misconduct are we really blaming and shaming family members for not knowing???? really?? (sic)."

When a user reverted by saying, "Not in all the cases, We do know such as in the case of vikhas behl that his fellow partners knew and stayed (sic)," Shibani once again defended Farhan by saying, "I’m speaking about one particular person who has been accused of knowing and HE DIDNT!!! (sic)."

When another user wrote, "We ARE holding the culprit responsible.But the leech of that standard has been going around for decades assaulting women and the family turns a blind eye. How fair is it. Do  you really want us to believe NO ONE in the family knew.Complicity at best! (sic)," Shibani wrote, "turns a blind eye?? wow that’s hell of an accusation.. HE DIDNT KNOW plain and simple .. had no clue... the second he heard he spoke up.. that is his truth no matter how much we discuss it, it won’t change (sic)."

Moving on, another netizen said, "If @FarOutAkhtar really didnt know, can he may be sit back,pause for a second and introspect how he didnt know inspite of growing old together.being a  the girls must be facing the trauma for years and years.and you cant be held accountable for 2 days? (sic)." Shibani reverted, "He can’t be held accountable for something he didn’t do or know of .. we need to focus on the girls and stop with the blame (sic)."

 A user wrote, "Instead of tweeting about culprit and critisizing him, you are tweeting about people tweeting about family members ?? Really ?? What's worse ? (sic)." Shibani retorted and wrote, "I do not support dragging innocent people through this .. focus on the ones who should be held accountable (sic)."

Lastly, a user opined, "I do not see a single tweet from you shaming the culprits. Surely the culprits are worse than those who are dragging innocent people. (sic)." Shibani fought back by writing, "so does that mean I support the behaviour of the culprit?? absolutely not .. it is horrific! don’t paint everyone with the same brush is what i’m saying .. leave the innocent and focus on the guilty (sic)."

Coming to talk of the Sajid Khan scandal, he has stepped down from the post of director of Housefull 4. He has been replaced by Fahad Samji, who directed Housefull 3. Akshay Kumar, the lead actor of the film, cancelled shoot after accusations against Sajid Khan came out.
