‘Its Misrepresentation Of His Character’ Says Anurag Kashyap’s daughter On MeToo Allegation

Anurag Kashyap
Anurag Kashyap Daughter: Aaliyah Kashyap said that MeToo allegations on her father and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap by actor Payal Ghosh bothered her the most as it was the fabrication of her father’s character.

Recalling last year when MeToo allegations were levelled against Anurag Kashyap by actor Payal Ghosh, Aaliyah said it bothered her the most because it was a misrepresentation of her father’s character.

The 20-year-old daughter of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap recently appeared on Invite Only Season 2, which airs on Zoom. On the show, Kashyap spoke about the allegations against her father.

Aaliyah revealed that the incident bothered her the most. She said that it wasn’t the haterade her father was receiving that bothered her but the fabrication of his character. She said that her father is a soft-hearted man that one will ever meet. The 20-year-old also added that the misrepresentation of her father is what gives her anxiety.

“I know that whatever hate I get for him is just from people who don’t have anything better to do with their lives. My dad also has been trying to make more of an effort to keep his things away from me because he doesn’t want it to make my anxiety worse,” added Aaliyah Kashyap.

Last year in September 2020,  Mumbai Police had summoned filmmaker Anurag Kashyap as the allegations of sexual harassment were made against him by the actor Payal Ghosh. The actor had also filed an FIR against Kashyap.

However, Kashyap has contradicted all accusations of sexual harassment levelled by Payal Ghosh to the Mumbai Police as the filmmaker termed the allegations an “absolute lie”.

The filmmaker’s lawyer said that “Kashyap has provided documentary proof of the fact that throughout August 2013, he was away in Sri Lanka in connection with the shooting of one of his films.”
