Anurag Kashyap is not worried for his own wellbeing. He is worried about the stress that his family is going through.
As a close friend of Anurag told this writer, “He is not worried for himself. But it distresses him that his family is very worried. Anurag says it’s not about him. It’s about his reputation. It’s about standing up for everything that he has stood for.Anurag comes from a family of strong individualistic women. Respecting women for what they come naturally to him.”
Anurag wants to see this fight to prove his innocence to its logical conclusion. “He wants to pursue the case right to its logical conclusion. Because the accusation challenges everything that he has stood for all his life. For years Anurag has been perceived as a fiercely defiant feminist filmmaker. He can’t let his reputation be squandered by a lie. He will fight and fight until he gets justice.”
It looks Ms Payal Ghosh has a long battle ahead.
