Actress Payal Ghosh has accused renowned filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment. However, Anurag has denied the claims.

‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ maker Anurag Kashyap has called the allegations ‘baseless’. In the latest tweet, he denied the allegations and wrote, “All I want to say is all allegations are baseless.” 

Payal Ghosh, who has worked in films such as ‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi’, has blamed Kashyap for forcing himself on her. However, the filmmaker denied the allegations in a series of tweets and called them  “an attempt to silence” him.

He tweeted, “Wow, it took you so long to make an attempt to silence me. Never mind… in a bid to silence me, you have dragged another woman in this, despite being a woman. Please stick to the limits, Madame. All I want to say is all allegations are baseless.”

Payal Ghosh, in the interview, revealed that he had told her “it is okay” after harassing her because other actresses he has worked with like Huma Qureshi and Mahi Gill “are just a call away.” 

However, Kashyap notified, “Whether it’s my first wife or second, or a girlfriend… or all those actresses who worked with me… or all those female colleagues who have been working with me… I don’t indulge in such behavior in public or otherwise. Neither do I tolerate such behavior. Rest, whatever happens… let’s see. In the video, you can figure how true the allegations are… otherwise, just love and good wishes for you. Apologies for replying to you in Hindi for your accusations in English.”
