Actor Kriti Sanon says when the #MeToo allegations surfaced against “Houseful 4” director Sajid Khan and her co-star Nana Patekar, the team took swift actions as they were focused on not letting it affect the final product.

Sajid stepped down from the project following multiple sexual misconduct accusations against him. He was replaced by writer Farhad Samji as the director.

Nana, too, distanced himself from the comedy after being accused of harassment by actor Tanushree Dutta. He was replaced by actor Rana Daggubati.

“It was weird to be on set with all that going on. Someone else directing us suddenly in the middle of the film. But I give it to producer Sajid Nadiadwala sir, he took certain decisions and handled it very well. We didn’t stop shooting for more than two days,” Kriti told news agencies.

The actor said that the team, including actors Akshay Kumar, Kriti Kharbanda, Bobby Deol, Ritiesh Deshmukh and Pooja Hegde, were focused on the film and delivers a good final product.

“We finished our schedule a day before we were supposed to finish. That way, we all just wanted to make the film in a good manner and make sure all of this doesn’t affect the final product. A film once made is out forever. We were together in it.”

The “Bareilly Ki Barfi” star says some of the highlight sequences of the film were shot post the #MeToo allegations and was handled very well.

Kriti will be next seen in “Luka Chuppi” co-starring Kartik Aaryan. The film, directed by Laxman Utekar and written by Rohan Shankar, is scheduled to release on March 1.
