Actor alleged Anurag Kashyap of sexually harassing her; director calls the claims baseless

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap on Sunday said the sexual harassment allegations levelled against him by actor Payal Ghosh are “baseless”.

On Saturday, Payal Ghosh took to Twitter and wrote that the “Gangs of Wasseypur” director was sexually inappropriate towards her.

The actor, who made her Hindi debut with Rishi Kapoor-Paresh Rawal starrer “Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi”, also claimed that Kashyap boasted about his connection with megastar Amitabh Bachchan and claimed that there were other female artistes who he got intimate with.

In a series of Twitter posts in Hindi, Kashyap dismissed the allegations, calling it an attempt to “silence” him.

“Such a long time was taken to shut me up, never mind. (But) while shutting me up, you lied so much that you dragged other women also in it. Please maintain some dignity madam. All I will say is that all your allegations are baseless,” Kashyap tweeted.

“Any lover or all those female actors with whom I’ve worked or the team of all those girls and women that have been working with me or all those women I’ve met in private or in public. I neither behaved like this nor do I tolerate such behaviour at any cost. Rest we will see what happens,” he added.
