Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah Kashyap is known to wear her heart on her sleeves. Be it talking about her mental health issues or pouring out her heart in honest videos on her YouTube, the star kid has never shied away from expressing herself. In a recent interview, Aaliyah opened up about the MeToo allegations that were put forth against her father by actress Payal Ghosh last year. She stated she has grown accustomed to all the hate thrown in her way. However, the misrepresentation of her father’s character bothered her the most.
During her appearance on Zoom’s ‘Invite Only Season 2’, the 20-year-old influencer said, “The #MeToo claims bothered me a lot. The hate doesn’t get to me, it is the misrepresentation of his character that bothers me. People think he is a terrible man, but ask anyone close to me and they will say that he’s the biggest softy teddy bear you’ll ever meet.”
Aaliyah also admitted that the allegations levelled against her father gave her anxiety. “This is what gives me anxiety, and not really the hate. I know that whatever hate I get for him is just from people who don’t have anything better to do with their lives. My dad also has been trying to make more of an effort to keep his things away from me because he doesn’t want it to make my anxiety worse,” she added.
For the unversed, last year in September, Payal Ghosh accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment. She alleged that the director ‘forced himself on her during a professional meeting a few years ago.'
However, Anurag Kashyap denied the allegations and called it an ‘absolute lie’.
