Several Bollywood stars came forth to support filmmaker Anurag Kashyap who has been allegedly accused of sexual harassment by Payal Ghosh.
Taapsee Pannu who has worked closely with Anurag also defended him and claimed that if his crime is proven, she would end all ties with the filmmaker.
During a recent interview, the Thappad actress said: “Anurag has a lot of respect for women, never badmouths anyone even if that person hasn’t been kind to him in public. His is one of those rare sets where the number of women on the crew equals men, and they only have nice things to say about him.”
“If someone has been harassed, let them initiate an investigation, let the truth come out. If he is found guilty, I’ll be the first person to break all ties with him,” she said.
“But if the investigation is inconclusive, how can the sanctity of the #MeToo movement be sustained? How will real victims benefit from a power that’s come to us after years of suppression? It’s wrong for women to derail the movement. Abusing power isn’t gender-specific,” she added.
