Anurag Kashyap accused of sexual harassment by actress Payal Ghosh

Anurag Kashyap has been accused on sexual harassment by actress Payal Ghosh and called “fxxxing hypocrite” for his public stance on women empowerment and patriarchy.

“I went to meet him and the next day when he took me to the other room, he opened his zip and tried to force his c**k (penis) inside my vagina by opening my Salwar Kameez. He said it was okay and all the actresses who worked with him such as Huma Qureshi, Richa Chadha, Mahi Gil, they are just a call away,’ Payal Ghosh stated. Apparently, Anurag Kashyap told her, ‘Whenever I call them, they come running and suck my c**k (penis)”.

Ghosh made the allegations during an interview with ABN Telugu and later on Twitter. She has also appealed to prime minister Narendra Modi for action against the filmmaker.

Payal Ghosh said that she was uncomfortable with the whole thing and managed to get away by saying that she will return and they will have a ‘good time’ but she wanted to go away at that moment. She said that until the moment she could manage to put a stop to it, ‘everything happened’. Anurag Kashyap apparently told her that physical relationships are very normal.

…The next day he called me again. He said he wanted to discuss something with me. I went to his place, he was drinking whiskey or scotch, whatever I don’t know. It was smelling very bad. It could easily have been charas or ganja, drugs I don’t know, I don’t have any idea about it but I am not stupid,’ Payal Ghosh stated. Then, they went to the other room where the incident allegedly happened.

Meanwhile, in a statement, Rekha Sharma, chief of National Commission for Women (NCW), has extended support to Payal Ghosh.

“We will investigate and even write to the police and stand with her till investigation is done and the case goes to court,” she said.
