New Delhi: Payal Ghosh, who had accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment, has now claimed that she had revealed everything to cricketer Irfan Khan. The actress said that she was good friends with the cricketer and had confided in him about the misconduct.
She has now demanded cricketer to speak in her favour and questioned that why he has been keeping mum all this while.
“I have definitely not talked about mr. kashyap raped me but I shared everything with @IrfanPathan about the conversations including (xyz) alas!! he is keeping mum inspite of knowing everything and once he claimed to be my good friend," she said in a tweet.
She then went on to say what happened in 2014. She wrote: “2014 a day prior to Holi AK msg me ,was asking me 2 b 2his place dt time @IrfanPathan was at my home only,d msg came infront of him & I told him I’m going to go 2 @vineetjaintimes‘s party but not 2 mr. Kashyap’s house. Hope he remembers.!!”
“The point of tagging @IrfanPathan doesn’t mean I have any interest in him but he’s the one I have shared everything about Mr. Kashyap but not d rape thing.. I know he believe in his faith and his elderly parents so I expect him to talk about whatever I shared wd him," she said in another tweet.
Earlier in September, Payal Ghosh accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of foring himself on to her. She had earlier sought security from Maharashtra Home Minister. She also met Maharashtra governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari in the same matter.
Meanwhile, Anurag Kashyap had denied the accusations.
Payal Ghosh had also named three Bollywood actors -- Richa Chadha, Huma Qureshi and Mahie Gill , claiming that the filmmaker had told her that they traded sexual favours in return of films. Following this, Richa Chadha had filed a defamation case against the actress. The Bombay High Court urged Payal to issue an unconditional apology to Richa.
