Anurag Kashyap's ex Kalki slams harassment allegations against him
Actress Payal Ghosh had accused Kashyap of sexual harassment.
Anurag Kashyap's ex-wife Kalki Koechlin, who he was married to from 2011 to 2015, has defended the filmmaker after actress Payal Ghosh accused him of sexual harassment.
She wrote on Instagram, "Dear Anurag, don't let this social media circus get to you, you have fought for the freedom of women in your scripts, you've defended their integrity in your professional space as well as in your personal life. I have been witness to it, in the personal and professional space you have always seen me as your equal, you have stood up for my integrity even after our divorce, and you have supported me when I felt unsafe in a work environment even before we got together.
"This strange time where everyone gets to abuse one another and make false claims without any repercussions is a dangerous and repulsive one. It is destroying families, friends and countries. But there is a place of dignity that exists beyond this virtual blood bath, a place of paying attention to the needs of those around you, a place of being kind even when no one is looking, and I know you are very familiar with that place."
Another ex, Aarti Bajaj, also spoke up in Anurag's defense.
