Anurag Kashyap’s lawyer has released a statement saying that the Bollywood director is in a lot of pain because of the false accusations labeled against him with the intention of maligning his image.
A couple of days ago, actress Payal Ghosh accused Anurag Kashyap of forcing himself onto her and tagged the Prime Minister’s office on twitter to expose the demon behind Anurag’s creative image.
That tweet triggered a social media storm with certain sections defending Anurag, while certain others going hard at him.
Through the statement, Anurag’s lawyer has made it absolutely clear that #metoo movement is a very strong movement and the entire motive of the movement is to provide justice to the “actual” victims of sexual harassment.
But, it’s unfortunate and sad that a movement as strong and as important as that is used as a plot against someone to malign his image.
At the end of the statement, it has been mentioned that Anurag has been informed about his legal rights in the matter and he is willing to pursue all his legal rights to come out clean at the end of it all.

Anurag Kashyap is one of the most outspoken Bollywood directors who always speak without any reservations.
Even on Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case and Kangana Ranaut’s attack on the flag-bearers of nepotism, Anurag has put forward his views with clarity.
Some people believe it’s because of his outspoken nature and the fact that he doesn’t shy away from putting forward his views that somebody might be trying to malign Anurag’s image.
Anurag himself also wrote on twitter that he had been getting quite a few phone calls with people telling him not to speak too much and to keep quiet.
अभी तो बहुत आक्रमण होने वाले हैं। यह बस शुरुआत है । बहुत फ़ोन आ चुके हैं, कि नहीं मत बोल और चुप हो जा । यह भी पता है कि पता नहीं कहाँ कहाँ से तीर छोड़ें जाने वाले हैं । इंतेज़ार है ।
