Mumbai, Oct 12: Choreographer-director Farah Khan says she and her family are heartbroken with sexual misconduct allegations against her brother, director Sajid Khan.

Farah on Friday tweeted: “This is a heartbreaking time for my family. We have to work through some very difficult issues. If my brother has behaved in this manner he has a lot to atone for. I don’t in any way endorse this behaviour and stand in solidarity with any woman who has been hurt.”

Sajid has been named by multiple women, including two actresses — Sonali Chopra and Rachel White — and one journalist for sexual misconduct.

Farhan Akhtar, Sajid’s cousin, has also expressed “shock” and “disappointment” over the allegations.

Sajid himself addressed the accusations, and stepped down as director of “Housefull 4”.

The film “Housefull 4” also features Nana Patekar, who too is accused of sexual misconduct by actress Tanushree Dutta.

While Twinkle Khanna took to Twitter exhorting the Housefull 4 team to take a firm stance, Akshay Kumar, the lead of the film, has called off the film’s shooting until “further investigation”.
