Actor Payal Ghosh spoke to the media about director Anurag Kashyap’s statement registered by the Mumbai Police on Thursday and refuted his ‘not in India’ claim

Actor Payal Ghosh spoke to ANI after reflecting on director Anurag Kashyap’s statements to the police on Thursday and expressed satisfaction on the fact that the police have started investigating the case at her behest. She said that Kashyap’s denial of the charges against him was “expected” and claimed that he will naturally “defend himself”.

“Someone who has committed the crime will not state upfront that he had done something. The accused never accept their mistakes, he is defending himself. It was expected. I am happy that the investigation has started which was not the case earlier. I was running pillar to post while he was relaxing at his home. I have spoken the truth”, said Ghosh to ANI.

She claimed that Kashyap had himself disclosed the film’s status to her in 2013 around the time that he allegedly raped her. He had allegedly also shared with Ghosh that Kalki Koechlin, his then second wife, had left him after a fight.
