Anurag Kashyap reacts to “baseless” sexual allegations by Payal Ghosh

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has hit back at Payal Ghosh after she accused him of sexual harassment.

In a tweet, Kashyap said, “Wow, it took so long in the attempt to silence me. It’s ok. In the attempt to silence me, you dragged several other women despite being a woman yourself. Have some limit Madam. Will just want to say that whatever the accusations are, they are all unsubstantiated.”

His followed the initial tweet, with a second post, “In the process of accusing me you tried to drag my artists and the Bachcan family but failed. Madam I have been married twice, if that’s my crime then I accept it, and have loved a lot, I accept that too. Whether it was my first wife or the second, or any other lover, or the many actresses I have worked with,or that team of girls and women who has always been working with me, or the many women who I met in private or in public.”

He further stated, “I do not engage in such behavior or tolerate it. Whatever happens we shall see. One can see in your video how much of it is truth and how much of it isn’t. Blessings and love to you. Apologies for answering your English with my hindi.”

Earlier, Ghosh alleged Kashyap of forcing himself on her. She tweeted, “@anuragkashyap72
has forced himself on me and extremely badly. @PMOIndia @narendramodi ji, 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. Pls help!”
