Exclusive- Payal Ghosh on her allegation of Anurag Kashyap's sexual misconduct:

Payal Ghosh has been the discussion of town since the time the clock struck 7 pm on Saturday, September 19. Payal has blamed movie producer Anurag Kashyap for acting improperly with her in a video that turned into a web sensation. She kept up her position when we addressed her a couple of moments back.

“I have wanted to speak about this for a long time. But today, finally I thought I must get it off my head,” said the ‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi’ entertainer in a selective talk with ETimes. Has she seen or perused something about Anurag in the previous barely any hours that angered her? Payal stated, “Nothing like that. In fact, I had tweeted about my incident sometime ago when the MeToo movement had happened, but many people told me to delete the tweet else I would stop getting work. My manager too advised me to remove the tweet. I complied. Post that, Anurag blocked me on WhatsApp.”

Payal, who remains in Mumbai, says that she didn’t disclose to her folks before blaming Anurag in a video since they wouldn’t have permitted her to do as such. “After the video went viral, they called and scolded me,” she uncovered.

So, the story in arrangement, as indicated by Payal, goes that she and Anurag were Facebook companions and the undesirable episode she confronted occurred in her third gathering with Anurag at his habitation at Yari Road. “The first time I met him was at his office in Aram Nagar, Versova. The second time I met him was at his residence. We spoke in general about films and the film industry. Then he called me again to his house and this time, that is on the third occasion, he tried to force himself upon me. I did not raise an alarm but pleaded with him that he should let me go as I would return again some other time,” Payal guaranteed.

And at that point? Answered Payal, “After that, he texted me a few times asking me to come over. But I did not go,” including, “We had decided to meet, yes. And it was I who wanted to meet Anurag. Actors and actresses have to meet filmmakers so that they get to know them. It is meant to acquire work. Else how would makers know about us?”

Does she have verification to back her allegation against Anurag? Says Payal, “No, I don’t have any of his text messages as quite some time has rolled by and I have changed more than one phone since then. Neither I had recorded what happened at his house (in the third meeting).”

“Coming back to what makes me come out in the open, I just want to make girls wary,” Payal said insistently, including that she has had no other awful encounters in the business up until now.

Kangana Ranaut has turned out in her help and Payal offers her thanksgiving. “I agree with Kangana on a few things which are on my horizon and those of which I have had experiences in my profession.”

Payal, who says that she has a Hindi and South film in her current kitty, has additionally gotten help from the National Commission for Women whose director Rekha Sharma has requested that her present a point by point grumbling. “I will send a detailed complaint to Rekha Sharma, soon,” Payal finished up.

Meanwhile, Anurag has posted 4 tweets denying Payal’s charge. We imitate those tweets beneath:
