Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who has started making buzz currently owing to the sexual allegation, claimed by Payal Ghosh, has released a press statement through his lawyer.

Lawyer Priyanka Khimani has mentioned that Anurag Kashyap is deeply in pain by false allegations of MeToo i.e. sexual harassment.

“My client, Anurag Kashyap, has been deeply pained by the false allegations of sexual misconduct that have recently surfaced against him. These allegations are completely false, malicious and dishonest. It is sad that a social movement as important as the #metoo movement has been co-opted by vested interests and reduced to a mere tool for character assassination,” said his lawyer Priyanka Khimani.

Kashyap shared his lawyer’s statement on his social media account.

The ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ director claimed that these allegations made by Ghosh are politically motivated and he is being penalised for having a contrarian view on the Indian establishment.

Meanwhile, many other Bollywood celebs have come out in support of the filmmaker.

Kashyap and his loyal friends and colleagues such as Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker, Hansal Mehta and Gulshan Deviah have come forward dismissing Ghosh’s claims and vouching for the award-winning director’s strong work ethics and moral fibre.
