Sacred Games maker Anurag Kashyap is in the news as an actress named Payal Ghosh accused him of sexual misconduct. She is said to have filed a complaint against him in Oshiwara Police Station. Though Anurag Kashyap has called these accusations false, the controversy has put him in a negative light. While there are many who have come out in support of Anurag, an old video of him confessing that he molested and abused a kid in childhood has surfaced on the internet. Kangana Ranaut too has reacted to it.
Sharing the video, Kangana Ranaut wrote, "I spoke about emotional vultures/suicide gang who killed SSR and tried to push me to kill myself, many asked but why they do this to others? Listen to Anurag he is explaining how he used to molest a kid, they are people who are hurting but they think hurting others is the answer."
In the video, Anurag can be heard saying that he used to take a kid to the corner and slap him. It was a way to remove his frustration as he suffered the same too. The kid then complained to his parents, and Anurag was pulled up by the principal of the school, as shared by the director. Check out Kangana's tweet below:

After Payal Ghosh's #MeToo allegations against Anurag created stir, the filmmaker shared the statement of his lawyer on his social media accounts. The statement read, "My client, Anurag Kashyap, has been deeply pained by the false allegations of sexual misconduct that have recently surfaced against him. These allegations are completely false, malicious and dishonest. It is sad that a social movement as important as the #MeToo movement has been co-opted by vested interests and reduced to a mere tool for character assassination. Fictitious allegations of this nature seriously undermine the movement and seek to unconscionably trade upon the pain and trauma of the actual victims of sexual harassment and abuse. My client has been fully advised of his rights and remedies in law and intends to pursue them to the fullest extent."
