For the unversed, actress Payal Ghosh, who made her Bollywood debut with the movie ‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi’in an interview with ANI, Payal Ghosh talked about her meeting with Anurag Kashyap and expressed how the filmmaker forced himself on her. She said:

“Five years ago, I met Anurag Kashyap regarding work. He called me to his house. When I went there, he took me to a separate room and tried to sexually assault me. He forced himself on me. I request the authorities to 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. I am seeking action against him,”

Following the allegations, Anurag Kashyap took to his social media and responded on the same, denying all the allegations. He claimed that the allegations were ‘baseless’. He said:

“I neither behave like this nor do I ever tolerate this at any price,”

Anurag Kashyap also shared a statement issued by his lawyer denying all the allegations. The statement reads:

“My client, Anurag Kashyap, has been deeply pained by the false allegations of sexual misconduct that have recently surfaced against him. These allegations are completely false, malicious and dishonest. It is sad that a social movement as important as the #metoo movement has been co-opted by vested interests and reduced to a mere tool for character assassination. Fictitious allegations of this nature seriously undermine the movement and seek to unconscionably trade upon the pain and trauma of actual victims of sexual harassment and abuse. My client has been advised about his rights and remedies in law and intends to pursue them to the fullest extent – Priyanka Khimani.”
