Huma Qureshi Finally Breaks Her Silence On The Anurag Kashyap Controversy

In the midst of the allegations put against director Anurag Kashyap by actor Payal Ghosh, the film maker’s heroines got vocal in support of Kashyap.

As per the allegations, Anurag forced himself on Payal. On that note, she also named Huma Qureshi, Richa Chadha among others in the conversation with ANI Telegu.

“You have given chance to Richa Chadha, Mahie Gill, Huma Qureshi… they are so nominal looking girls. Generally, directors don’t give them chance but you have done a great job. But I am not mentally prepared for this right now”, she was quoted as saying when she was describing how she was harassed by Kashyap.

To this Huma Qureshi posted on her Instagram a very powerful message.

“Anurag and I last worked together in 2012-13 and he is a dear friend and an extremely talented director. In my personal experience and to my knowledge he has neither misbehaved with me or anyone else. However, anyone who claims to be abused must report to the authorities, the police, and the judiciary. I chose not to comment until now because I don’t believe in social media fights and social media trials. I feel really angry at being dragged into this mess. I feel angry not just for myself but also for every woman whose years of hard work and struggle get reduced to such baseless conjecture and allegations in their workplace. Please let’s refrain from this narrative. It is the joint responsibility of women and men both to carefully protest the sanctity of #MeToo. This is my final response. Please do not approach me to make any more statements on this matter.”

In the meantime, Richa Chadha too got into a discussion with her lawyer and posted the following statement on her Instagram handle to spread the word.

While Anurag was backed by her leading ladies, he too got a statement out to protect his dignity.
