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.
In response, Sajid said: "In the wake of the allegations against me and the pressure being put on my family, my producer and the stars of my 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... I request my friends in the media to kindly not pass judgment till the truth is out."
