Actor Kriti Sanon says when the #MeToo allegations surfaced against Sajid & Nana, the 'Housefull 4' the team took swift actions as they were focused on not letting it affect the final product.
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 PTI.
The actor says the team, including actors Akshay Kumar, Kriti Kharbanda, Bobby Deol, Ritiesh Deshmukh and Pooja Hegde, were focused on the film and deliver 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.
"We shot some major sequences including the interval and the climax after that. These sequences are usually crazy because the entire star cast is together. Our producer took the call of spending that extra money, to reshoot scenes, with no fault of his," she added.
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.
