A couple of days ago, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap's name was embroiled in yet another controversy. Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi actress Payal Ghosh went on to accuse the Anurag of sexual misconduct. The news spread like a wildfire and a lot of people from the industry including his ex-wife, Kalki Koechlin came out in support of the Gangs of Wasseypur filmmaker. And now, Bengali actress Rupa Dutta has come out in support of Payal and has opened up on the chats with a people whom she mistook for Anurag Kashyap. After Payal opened up on her ordeal, the actress shared the screenshots of her Facebook chats. In her tweet, the actress also said that Anurag Kashyap didtook drugs and even supplied it to his artistes. However, since it was proved her claims are unfounded after a fact check.
"Hello friends. This is from the time in 2014 when I used to talk to Anurag Kashyap. His ID was Anurag Safar on Facebook. I stopped talking to him because he was talking inappropriately. This man does not even know the limit of disgusting behaviour. There is no respect for any woman in the eyes of Anurag Kashyap. Which is what I found out after knowing him. All of you must have come to know from my and Anurag’s conversation. That is why Payal Ghosh’s allegation is correct. Anurag Kashyap should be punished harshly. And he takes drugs too. Supplies to his artistes too. NCB should investigate, please. #arrestanuragkashyab," she wrote on her Twitter handle while sharing the screenshots of her chat. Have a look at her tweet here:
A report of Alt News stated that the account never belonged to Anurag Kashyap. It was an individual named Anurag Safar. "Pl Excuse me friends!!! I am not film director or producer Anurag Kashyap. I am another Anurag. Please do not bug me considering him," the user had clarified in 2010 when certain media outlets started tagging him instead of the filmmaker.
Kangana Ranaut in her tweet had said that she believed Anurag was capable of the said deed. Anurag has since denied the allegations of Payal and has even issued a legal statement. Payal had even taken the names of Huma Qureshi, Richa Chadha while narrating her ordeal. Richa Chadha had issued a legal notice to the actress of which a soft copy that was sent at her home, was not accepted by her/ her representatives. Payal Ghosh has filed a police complaint against Anurag at Oshiwara Police Station.
