Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has been accused of sexual harassment by an actress Payal Ghosh. While Kangana Ranaut stated that he is capable of doing it, the director is getting support from the actresses he has worked with including Taapsee Pannu and Radhika Apte. Now, his ex-wives Kalki Koechlin and Aarti Bajaj have also defended him.
Kalki wrote, "Dear Anurag, Don't let this social media circus get to you. You have fought for the freedom of women in your own scripts, you've defended their integrity in your professional space as well as your personal life. I have been a 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 you, a place of being kind even when no one is looking, and I know that you are very familiar with that place. Hang on to that dignity, stay strong and keep doing the work you do."

His first wife wrote, "First wife here... You are a rockstar, Anurag Kashyap. 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. Cheapest stunt I have seen till now. First it made me angry then I laughed so hard as it cannot come more framed then this. I am sorry that you have to go through this .That's the level of them. You stay high and keep using your voice. We love you."
It is yet to be seen if Payal's allegations turn out to be true.
