There are many who fight for an opportunity in the cinema. For those who do not have a film tradition or other connections, getting into cinema is a very difficult task. There are many people in this area who are trying to exploit this situation. Several stars have already revealed that they were asked to share a bed with them in exchange for the opportunity. Such complaints have been raised everywhere, regardless of language.
A social media post shared by actress Payal Ghosh about the casting couch is now being discussed. Payal Ghosh is an actress who has gained attention through South Indian movies. The actor has acted in Hindi, Kannada and Telugu films and is also active in politics. Payal, who is open about her views, has turned heads with some controversial comments in the past.
One of them is the sexual accusation against director Anurag Kashyap. A few months ago, Payal filed charges against Anurag. After that, the actress has now opened up against the casting couch through a post on social media. Payal said that if she was ready to sleep with someone, she could have done at least 30 movies by now. This was said in the post about the new movie update.
Payal wrote on Instagram that “‘With the Fire of Love: Red’ will be the 11th movie of my career. If I was ready to sleep with someone, I might have completed my 30th movie today. If you want to get great movies, you have to sleep with someone. Otherwise, it’s not possible.” The post quickly went viral.
After the post went viral, fans began asking if it was intended for anyone. But the actor immediately removed the post. The actress did not specify the reason why she withdrew the publication. With that, the discussions on social media heated up. Earlier, the post against Anurag Kashyap was also posted on social media.
He has also worked with two South Indian directors who are National Award winners. But not a single one has touched it badly. But Payal’s note was that although Anurag Kashyap had never worked with him in Bollywood, she raped her on the third meeting.
Payal Ghosh had previously made the same accusation against Anurag Kashyap. In 2013, she was allegedly raped by a Bollywood director at a location near Yari Road in Versova, Mumbai. In 2020, a case was filed against Anurag Kashyap on rape charges. The police took Anurag Kashyap’s statement about it and the director denied all the accusations.
Anurag Kashyap’s response was that in the future everyone will know what is the truth. On that day, celebrities like actress Taapsee came out in support of Anurag Kashyap. Fans have doubts that Payal Ghosh’s new post is also targeting Anurag Kashyap.
