In a shocking revelation, actress Payal Ghosh has accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment, claiming that Kashyap had forced himself onto her.
Taking to her Twitter account, Payal wrote, “@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!”
The tweet was written after the actress retweeted an interview that she had given to ABN Telugu, in which she had opened up about her alleged sexual encounter with the filmmaker.
She said in the interview, “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 inside my vagina by opening my salwar kameez. He said it was okay and all the actresses who worked with him are just a call away.” Apparently, Anurag Kashyap told her, “Whenever I call them, they come running and suck my c**k”. That is what he told me and expected the same.”
She 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 stated. Then, they went to the other room where the incident allegedly happened.
Watch her interview below:
Soon after, Rekha Sharma, Chairperson of the National Commission for Women, asked Payal for a detailed complaint in the matter and assured her that the commission will look into the matter. She wrote, “You may send me the detailed complaint at [email protected] and @NCWIndia will look into it.”
To which Payal responded by saying that she will send a formal complaint to the NCW.
