Akshay just returned to India from Italy and in his Twitter post wrote, "I've just landed back in the country last night and reading all the news has been very disturbing. I've requested the producers of 'Housefull 4' to cancel the shoot until further investigation. This is something that requires stringent action. I will not work with any proven offenders and all those who have been subjugated to harassment should be heard and given the justice they deserve."
