Payal Ghosh Calls #MeToo Movement ‘False’ After Levelling Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap
Payal Ghosh, who has levelled sexual misconduct allegations against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, questioned the authenticity of the movement that started about two years back. The Bengali actress has called the MeToo movement in India as ‘fake’. For the unversed, Payal Ghosh had accused Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment, on social media and said that the filmmaker forced himself on her. Later, Ghosh filed an FIR against Kashyap, who was questioned by the Versova Police station after. Then, Kashyap’s lawyer released an official statement and shared that he has provided evidence of being out of the country during the incident.

On Twitter, the Bengali actress tweeted and wrote, “All the accused got a clean chit in the #Metooindia movement. So it deems the accuser to be false. Why are they not punished for harassment then? Where is the truth. Up in the air. Why are those women not behind the bars for false accusations, as the accuser got a clean sheet?" Payal Ghosh pointed out on how all the #MeTooIndia accused got a clean chit and mentioned that the movement deems the accuser to be false.

Payal Ghosh questioned why is no one punished for harassment and asked why the women who made false accusations are not behind the bars. In a separate tweet, the actress wrote, “The women posting in support of the accused know nothing about the situation and can have an opinion that the accused can't do this ever. It's like the rapist's wife saying that the husband is innocent and can never do this. Tell me otherwise.” Payal shared her opinion by tagging #MeToo and #fake and took  a dig at the ones supporting Kashyap and said that the ones posting in support of the accused have no understanding of the situation and have an opinion on the same.

Meanwhile, after Anurag Kashyap’s lawyer Priyanka Khimani released an official statement and stated that her client has provided evidence of him being out of the country, in Sri Lanka, shooting for a film, Payal Ghosh claimed that the filmmaker has lied before the police. She then demanded a lie detector, polygraph test and narco analysis test to be performed on him. Later, according to an IANS report, Ghosh’s lawyer said on his unverified Twitter handle that he has filed an application to the Police station on his client’s behalf to conduct the required tests on Kashyap, to know the truth.
