Payal Ghosh, who accused Anurag Kashyap of molesting and treating her badly at his house, will be filing an official complaint against the filmmaker at Oshiwara Police station in Mumbai today on September 21. According to her, she tried to open up about it several times, but her family and close friends asked her to be silent to avoid any problem in the future.
Following her allegations, Kashyap’s friends and Bollywood counterparts came out to support the filmmaker and vouch for him. Apart from Taapsee Pannu, Radhika Apte, Hansal Mehta and others, Anurag’s first wife Aarti Bajaj also shared a supportive post on social media for the filmmaker.
