Actress Payal Ghosh has addressed the media after accusing filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment. Payal claimed that Anurag tried to molest her a few years ago. She said that she doesn’t remember the exact date or month but the memory still haunts her.
On being asked why she remained silent all these years, she said, “I tried to open up about it several times, but my family and close friends asked me to be silent to avoid any problem in the future. I wanted to talk about it, but I was silenced. We should talk about it so that people like him don’t abuse their position of power.”
Anurag Kashyap has called these accusations ‘baseless’. Sev eral women like Taapsee Pannu, Richa Chadha, Surveen Chawla, Radhika Apte and others who have worked with Anurag have defended him. Even his ex-wives Kalki Koechlin and Aarti Bajaj have stood in his support.
Speaking on the same, Payal said that if Anurag is such a nice man, why did both his wives leave him within a few years of marriage. She also said that both Kalki and Aarti are much happier after divorcing Anurag.
Payal told that she will be filing an FIR against Anurag.
