'Oosaravelli' and 'Prayanam' actress Payal Ghosh has hogged the headlines by alleging that Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap, years ago, sexually assaulted her at his Mumbai house.
With these allegations, Payal has put the acclaimed filmmaker in a soup. Speaking to a national daily, Payal admitted that she has got no proof to corroborate her allegations.
Regardless of the outcome of the allegations, Anurag Kashyap has to brace for social media and, to an extent, mainstream media trials now.
The fact that this has happened at a time when Bollywood has been facing a lot of "vilification" over nepotism, de-platforming of outsiders, drug cartels, terror funding only adds to the woes!
