In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Actress Amrita Puri lashed out at Sajid Khan on Twitter and called him a ‘Creep’ also adding that people from his family and industry knew about his shenanigans and she refuses to believe any one of them acting surprised.
This, however, this didn’t go down well with Farhan Akhtar and blasted the actress back on social media.
Amrita Puri took to her social media profile and 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”
Farhan Akhtar took offense to tweet from Amrita Puri and called her out on social media, stating he resents her insinuations.
He wrote, “I deeply resent your insinuation that I or my family knew of his behavior yet did nothing. Your anger is justified. Your conspiracy theories not. @_Amrita_Puri”
Earlier, when Housefull 4 director Sajid Khan was accused of sexual misconduct, Farhan Akhtar expressed a sense of anguish at Sajid’s behavior. The actor took to Twitter and wrote, “I cannot adequately stress how shocked, disappointed and heartbroken I am to read the stories about Sajid’s behavior. I don’t know how but he will have to find a way to atone for his alleged actions”
