Soon after famous Bollywood filmmaker, Sajid Khan got accused of sexual harassment, sister Farah Khan took to Twitter to extend her support towards the victims and women and said that she stands against the wrong. The choreographer-director expressed how shocked she is about to hear about her brother and wrote, “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 behavior and Stand in solidarity with any woman who has been hurt.”

While Farah thought she would be praised for standing up for women, Twitterati had other thoughts in mind. Moments after her tweets, netizens showered her with messages asking her to take down the picture she had posted with another accused actor Nana Patekar and not act like a saint. Twitterati asked Farah if she really didn’t know about her brother’s whereabouts or if her tweet is just an act of covering up. Here are all the reactions Farah Khan is facing for her tweet. Have a look!
