Saloni said that when she had started working with Sajid Khan, he used to refer her as director's assistant and not assistant director which meant that she had to do his work directly. "I've requested the producers of Housefull 4 to cancel the shoot until further investigation", he wrote on Twitter.

His full statement reads, "In the wake of the allegations against me and the pressure being put on my family, my producer and the stars of the film Housefull 4, I must take the moral responsibility of stepping down from my directorial post, till the time I can allay the allegations and prove the truth". She wrote, "Appalled hearing multiple incidents of harassment and it is truly horrific to hear what these women have been through". She also urged everyone in Housefull, which also stars her husband Akshay Kumar, to take a "firm stance" on the issue. He said that this requires stringent action and hence he will not work with any proven sex offenders. "This can not go on". The crew completed the schedule (they posted some BTS pictures and videos on social media) and returned to Mumbai apparently as if nothing had happened.
