by Shatakshi Gupta

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who took an active part in the ongoing debate in Bollywood, has been accused of serious sexual exploitation by actress Payal Ghosh.  The actress made this big disclosure during an interview to a Telugu news channel.  Now she herself has sought help from Prime Minister Narendra Modi while narrating her objection through social media.

 Sharing her interview on Twitter, she wrote, ‘He forced himself on me very very badly, @PMO India and@ Narendra Modi Ji please take action and show the country the monster hidden behind this creative person.  I know that this may harm me and may also endanger my safety.  Please help.

Anurag forced me: Payal

 In an interview to Telugu news channel ABM, the actress said that this incident happened with her in 2014 or 2015 but at that time she remained silent.  The actress told that she had gone to meet Anurag in connection with work where the filmmaker was trying to force a physical relationship with him by taking her to a room.  When Payal tried to stop her and said that she is not ready for this, Anurag said that all the actresses who worked with him are just a phone call away.  Despite this, when the actress refused, Anurag tried to force her.  However, on the persuasion of friends, the actress did not complain about it.
