"I will just say that all your allegations are baseless."
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who was accused of sexual assault by actress Payal Ghosh has reacted to the allegations made against him.
Paypal Ghosh took to Twitter to share a video in which she accused Anurag of exposing his genitals and forcing himself on her.
Calling Anurag Kashyap a f****** hypocrite, she explained:
“I went to meet him and the next day when he took me to the other room, he opened his zip and tried to force his c**k inside my vagina by opening my salwar kameez.
“Then he said, ‘It was okay, all the actresses who worked with me like Huma Qureshi, Richa Chadha, Mahi Gil they are just a call away. And whenever I call them, they come running and suck my c**k.’
“That’s what he told me and expected me to do the same.”
Payal Ghosh continued to mention that Anurag Kashyap claimed such relationships between directors and actresses are “not a big deal.”
The actress also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take strict action against Anurag Kashyap. She said:
“Anurag Kashyap has forced himself on me and extremely badly.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi, 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!”

Responding to the allegations against him, Anurag Kashyap tweeted in Hindi:
“Wow, it took so long to try to silence me. You lied so much in this effort and also dragged other women despite you being a woman.
“Have some dignity madam! I will just say that all your allegations are baseless.”
The filmmaker added:
“In the process of accusing me, you also dragged the Bachchan family and my artists, but you failed.
“I married twice. If it is a crime, then I accept it.”
“I also admit that I have loved a lot whether it was my first wife, my second wife, or any lover, or any other woman I have worked with.”
Anurag Kashyap continued to add:
“I will never behave this way nor will tolerate such manners. Will see what happens. Pray and love to you. Apologies for answering your English in my Hindi.”
As of yet, no action has been taken by authorities concerning the alleged sexual incident.
