"And whenever I call them, they come running"
Bollywood actress Payal Ghosh has claimed that she was sexually harassed by director Anurag Kashyap.
She alleged that he “forced himself” on her. Kashyap also allegedly told her that physical relationships between filmmakers and actresses are common in the film industry.
Payal made the allegations on Twitter, however, a video shows her giving a detailed account of what allegedly happened to her.
She slammed Kashyap for speaking about women empowerment, calling him a “f****** hypocrite”.
Payal 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.”
According to Payal, she told the filmmaker that she was uncomfortable with the whole situation. She asked to leave but said that she would come back and they would have a “good time”.
She went on to say that Kashyap said physical relationships between actresses and directors are normal and “not a big deal”.
Payal Ghosh explained that prior to the alleged incident, Kashyap called her, claiming he wanted to talk to her about something.
“The next day he called me again. He said he wanted to discuss something with me. I went to his place, he was drinking whiskey or scotch, whatever I don’t know.
“It was smelling very bad. It could easily have been charas or ganja, drugs I don’t know, I don’t have any idea about it but I am not stupid.”
They then went into the other room where the incident allegedly happened.
