Chunky Panday defends Sajid Khan; says that many have misunderstood him
Bollywood saw the #MeToo movement last year. Sajid Khan was one of the many B-town personalities who was accused by a few actresses over the allegations of harassment. While it came as a shock to cinema lovers, some celebrities have even supported the filmmaker. After Farah Khan, Chunky Panday supports Sajid Khan and says that people have misunderstood him.
Chunky Panday who is collaborating with Sajid Khan for the upcoming film, ‘Housefull 4′, calls him a ‘brother’. In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Chunky Panday told the website, “The thing is Sajid has always been a very, very outspoken person. He has always been this flamboyant person, what you see is what you get. A lot of people might misunderstand Sajid Khan.”
While talking about the #MeToo allegations on Sajid Khan, he added further, “Sajid just says things for effect, he doesn’t mean them. I know Sajid since childhood. Of course, when these allegations came, it was a shocker to everyone, you know it was the season of #MeToo, and everyone was getting exposed. So, we really felt bad. We had no option, the producer had a lot of pressure to drop him from the film (‘Housefull 4’). Luckily, Farhad Samji agreed to do it. It wasn’t easy but full marks to Sajid Nadiadwala for pulling this off. Of course, we felt bad when we lost Sajid (Khan).”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Chunky Panday will be seen in Sanjay Dutt starrer ‘Prassthaanam’ next, apart from ‘Housefull 4’. He was also recently seen in ‘Saaho’.
