Entertainment Desk: Indian filmmaker Sajid Khan has been suspended for a year by Indian Film and Television Directors' Association after being accused of sexual harassment by a female actor and an assistant director.
This verdict has been passed after Sajid appeared before the Internal Complaints Committee set up by the Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association on October 31, where the allegations against him were investigated.
According to a report when Sajid appeared before the Committee , the filmmaker surprisingly gave no explanation, response or anything to defend him against the allegations pressed on him. Although he admitted that his behaviour and language towards women and men have been impolite but he refused to admit that he has sexually molested the complainants.
Sajid has also stepped down as the director of 'Housefull 4' after the sexual harassment allegations.
