Ex-wife of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, Aarti Bajaj came out in support of the filmmaker after he was accused of sexual harassment. Yesterday, actress Payal Ghosh accused Anurag Kashyap of forcing himself on her. Now, Anurag Kashyap’s first wife Arti Bajaj has called it a ‘cheap stunt’ in a post on Instagram and she said that she found it infuriating at first but then laughed at the claims.
In the post, she wrote, “First wife here.. You are a rockstar @anuragkashyap10. Keep empowering women as you do and the safest place you create for all of them. I see it first hand with our daughter. There is no integrity left and the world is full of losers and no brains baying for blood of anyone who has a voice. If everybody spends the energy which they use in hating others constructively this world will be a better place.”
Further in her caption, Aarti wrote that this is the cheapest stunt she has seen till date. She mentioned that while she was furious at first, it later made her laugh hard since the whole thing couldn’t have come across ‘more framed’ than this. “That’s the level of them. You stay HIGH and keep using your voice. We love you,” she added. Check out Aarti Bajaj’s post below:
Actress Payal Ghosh had claimed in a tweet that Anurag Kashyap had ‘forced himself on (her)’ and urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take action against the filmmaker.
The filmmaker in response has denied all the allegations and called it absolutely baseless. In a series of tweets, he mentioned that he is expecting such attempts to silence his opinions. Taapsee Pannu also supported Anurag Kashyap, saying that he is the biggest feminist that she knows.
