The filmmaker denies all allegations put by actress Payal Ghosh. In a statement given to the Mumbai police, Anurag denies all the charges put up by Payal in her FIR statement. Anurag Kashyap was interrogated for eight hours by the Mumbai police.
Official Statement from Anurag Kashyap’s Lawyer:
In an FIR registered with the Versova Police Station, one Ms. Payal Ghosh has alleged that in August 2013, my client, Mr. Anurag Kashyap, called her to his house and sexually harassed her. My client presented himself for questioning before the investigating authority on 1st October 2020.
Mr. Kashyap has denied all wrongdoing in the matter and has provided his statement to the police. The material provided by Mr. Kashyap, in support of his statement, demonstrates that the complaint of Ms. Ghosh is an outright lie. Anurag Kashyap has provided documentary proof of the fact that throughout August 2013 he was away in Sri Lanka in connection with the shooting of one of his films. Mr. Kashyap has categorically denied that any such alleged incident ever took place and has also denied all allegations leveled against him.
Anurag Kashyap denies all allegations:
These sudden, belated allegations of an alleged incident of August 2013 have been widely publicized by the Complainant for the purpose of vilifying Mr. Kashyap, irrespective of the outcome of the judicial process. Mr. Kashyap is confident that the falsity of the complaint has been exposed, not only by the evidence presented by Mr. Kashyap but also by the ever-shifting version of events put forth by Ms. Ghosh in the media. Mr. Kashyap is apprehensive that now that the falsity of her allegations in the FIR has been established, she will alter her version of events in the investigative process as well.
Mr. Kashyap is distressed with the false and reckless allegations made against him that have caused pain to him, his family, and his fans. Mr. Kashyap intends to vigorously pursue the legal remedies available to him. Mr. Kashyap vehemently denies any such incident, as has been alleged, and has sought for severe action against Ms. Ghosh for misusing the criminal justice system and for hijacking the Me-Too Movement for her ulterior motives. Mr. Kashyap is confident that justice will prevail.
