Smriti Irani Reacts To Payal Ghosh’s Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Anurag Kashyap
Actress Payal Ghosh leveled serious allegations against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and accused him of sexual misconduct. In her tweet, Payal Ghosh wrote that he forced himself on her, and she tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him to take action and said that her security is at risk. After the allegations were leveled against Anurag Kashyap, several celebs such as Taapsee Pannu, Radhika Apte, Hansal Mehta and others came to the filmmaker’s defense. Now, Smriti Irani has reacted to the allegations.

Union Minister Smriti Irani, who handles the Ministry of Women and Child Development, spoke to Republic and said, “I am in a Constitutional position that oversees the National Commission for Women. NCW has made a public statement, hence it will be inappropriate for me to digress and get into their constitutional area about how they want to go ahead with a particular case." The National Commission for Women (NCW) chairperson Rekha Sharma had replied to Payal Ghosh’s tweet.

Rekha Sharma wrote, “You may send me the detailed complaint at chairperson-ncw@nic.in and @NCWIndia will look into it.” Replying to this, Payal Ghosh stated that she will do that.


Meanwhile, Anurag Kashyap’s lawyer Priyanka Khimani has issued a statement on his behalf, and wrote that Anurag Kashyap has been deeply pained by the false allegations of sexual misconduct against him. It stated that the allegations are completely false. Yesterday, Anurag Kashyap’s first wife Aarti Bajaj also defended Anurag Kashyap and called the allegations against him the ‘cheapest stunt’ she has seen till date.

International Men’s Day 2020: Throwback To 2019 When Late Sushant Singh Rajput Had Tweeted 'Men Too Have Emotions' And 'It's Okay To Cry'
International Men’s Day 2020 falls on November 19 i.e today. The first International Men’s day was celebrated back in 1992 and is celebrated every year, ever since in more than 80 countries across the world. Every year, a particular theme is followed. And, this year, the theme stands for better health for men and boys. On International Men’s day 2020, here’s a throwback video shared by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput where he said that men too have emotions. SSR had tweeted the video last year saying how it’s okay for men to cry.

The irony is that Sushant, last year, had made a tweet saying that men too have emotions and that it is okay to be man enough to feel. Sharing a video of an army officer, Sushant had penned, "Men have emotions too so don't be shy to cry.  It's okay to let it out and not hold it inside. It's not a weakness but a sign of strength. Be man enough to feel. Feeling is human."

Not just this, even in his last film Chhichhore that made it to the theatres, Sushant's character of Anni spoke about how suicide is not the solution to anything and that one should learn how to deal with failure and move forward in life. Sadly, Sushant could not cope with all that life threw at him and he decided to take his own life.
