On Saturday, in a series of shocking incidents, actress Payal Ghosh leveled charges against popular Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap that he had forced himself on her.
Recently, in an interview with ABN Telugu, the actress recounted the incident claiming that Anurag Kashyap told her that ‘she should not think of denying a big star like him’, as it would allegedly ‘benefit her in the future’. Not just this, Payal also revealed how he threatened her to stay quiet about the incident, reminding her of ‘acid attacks’ on women.
Payal Ghosh made her screen debut with the 2008 English TV film titled Sharpe’s Peril and has also appeared in a number of Tamil, Telugu and Kannada movies. She is currently preparing herself for her role in an untitled Bollywood movie.
Payal also took to her social media and revealed that Anurag Kashyap forced himself on her and even reached out to PM Narendra Modi for help. She wrote:
“@anuragkashyap72 has forced himself on me and extremely badly. @PMOIndia @narendramodi ji, kindly take action and let the country see the demon behind this creative guy. I am aware that it can harm me and my security is at risk. Pls help!”
