Anurag Kashyap denies the allegations
Anurag Kashyap replied to Payal’s allegations and vehemently denied the accusation. In a series of tweets posted on his Twitter account, Anurag recited his version of the topic. He said: “Wow, it took so long in the attempt to silence me. It’s ok. In the attempt to silence me, you dragged several other women despite being a woman yourself. Have some limit Madam. Will just want to say that whatever the accusations are, they are all unsubstantiated.”
He further said: “In the process of accusing me you tried to drag my artists and the Bachcan family but failed. Madam I have been married twice, if that’s my crime then I accept it, and have loved a lot, I accept that too. Whether it was my first wife or the second, or any other lover, or the many actresses I have worked with,or that team of girls and women who has always been working with me, or the many women who I met in private or in public.”
