Taapsee Pannu has come out in support of Anurag Kashayap, after the filmmaker was accused of sexual misconduct on Saturday evening. Sharing a candid monochrome click, presumably from their film set, Taapsee wrote, “For you, my friend, are the biggest feminist I know. See you on the sets soon of yet another piece of art that shows how powerful and significant women are in the world you create.” Taapsee and Anurag Kashyap have collaborated for ventures like ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ and ‘Manmarziyaan’.
Payal Ghosh, who featured in ‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi’, alleged that Anurag Kashyap had tried to force himself upon her. She had shared on Twitter, “anuragkashyap72 has forced himself on me and extremely badly. @PMOIndia @narendramodi ji, kindly take action and let the country see the demon behind this creative guy. I am aware that it can harm me and my security is at risk. Pls help.” While speaking to ETimes, Payal had revealed that she had tweeted about this incident when the MeToo movement had happened but several people told her to delete it as she would stop getting work.
On his part, Anurag Kashyap had termed the allegations as baseless. “I do not engage in such behavior or tolerate it. Whatever happens we shall see,” the filmmaker had shared on Twitter.
