Over the past few weeks, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has been in the headlines due to the alleged sexual misconduct accusations made by Payal Ghosh against him. The actress went ahead and tweeted allegations of sexual misconduct against Anurag last month and claimed that the filmmaker forced himself upon her. Amid this, she went ahead and complained to the Mumbai Police after which Anurag was called for questioning yesterday. After being questioned for reportedly 8 hours, a news channel's report claims that Anurag has denied all charges levelled against him. 

As per CNN News 18's report, Anurag Kashyap has reportedly denied all allegations to Mumbai Police after being questioned for 8 hours on Thursday. The filmmaker also reportedly told the cops that he has never met Payal at his Versova residence as alleged by her. Further, as per the CNN News 18 report, the filmmaker has apparently told the cops that he only knew her in a professional capacity. However, he reportedly mentioned that he has not kept in touch with her over the years. It was also reported by the news channel that the filmmaker was also quizzed about the messages passed on by Payal to Mumbai Police. 

To note, Payal had alleged that the filmmaker forced himself upon her and post that, she was asked by the NCW chief to file a written complaint to them. The actress recently met up with Union Minister Ramdas Athawale in connection with her complaint. The minister supported the actress and demanded justice for her. Further, Payal even met up Maharashtra Governor BS Koshyari and asked for Y+ security citing a threat to her life. 

After Payal had levelled allegations against Anurag, the filmmaker took to social media to deny all of it. He called the allegations 'baseless and malicious' in a statement that was released on his social media via his lawyer. Several actresses like Kalki Koechlin, Radhika Apte, Mahie Gill and more backed Anurag and released a statement regarding the same after Payal's allegations.

Anurag is underestimating the power of politics. Anurag should realize that he doesn't live in a country where free speech is appreciated and central investigative agencies can be turned against him. No one is safe in India if they go against the government or if they become the pawn in politics to be sacrificed. Courts are spineless and marginalized and they can't even put basic controls over the media spinning fake stories and destroying the lives of innocent. The whole situation is exasperated because people become part of the lynching mob and follow the perpetrators without questioning the truth. Payal Ghosh, Kangana and SSR family are just the instruments to orchestrate the political playbook.

Why so much conjecturing by everyone ? Let the police/law do its job. Same in SSR case. Your personal/political ideologies have no bearing on the case. It's only to satisfy ones own ego. If he has done something wrong and found guilty, he should and will be punished.

Big and rich people never do any misconduct. They are always right. Police and other machinary never believe the voice of weaker section. I do not hesitate to say about the character of actresses stil they always hide the truth. But a actress who openly telling in public and going to Police with some proof , how you people are defaming the actress.

If he never met Payal at his Versova residence how is she able to give such a detailed account of what the inside of the residence looks like?

Detailed account? She mentioned about his library, which everybody knows and is out there on the internet. To find out if he has a pet or not, is not a difficult thing. You can look it up in his instagram or social media accounts. Other than that I don't recall that she mentioned any details of the house. Did she?
