Actress Payal Ghosh accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment and she even filed an FIR against him. As per a report in SpotboyE, a close friend of the filmmaker revealed that he will be taking legal action against Payal. The source revealed, “When Anurag is very still it can only mean he’s dedicated to the task on hand. Proving his innocence, not by pleading innocence in court but by presenting hard cold facts to back his claim, is going to be his modus operandi in court.”
The source also revealed that Anurag is not worried about him, he is worried about the stress that his family is going through. The source said, “He is not worried for himself. But it distresses him that his family is very worried. Anurag says it’s not about him. It’s about his reputation. It’s about standing up for everything that he has stood for. Anurag comes from a family of strong individualistic women. Respecting women for what they come naturally to him.”
The source further said, “He wants to pursue the case right to its logical conclusion. Because the accusation challenges everything that he has stood for all his life. For years Anurag has been perceived as a fiercely defiant feminist filmmaker. He can’t let his reputation be squandered by a lie. He will fight and fight until he gets justice.”
Earlier, Kashyap’s lawyer Priyanka Khimani had issued a statement claiming Payal’s accusations are false.
