Mumbai, Sep 20 : Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap”s friends from the film industry, Taapsee Pannu, Anubhav Sinha, Tisca Chopra and Surveen Chawla, have come out in support of the director after actor Payal Ghosh accused him of sexual harrassment.

On Saturday, Ghosh took to Twitter, claiming that the “Gangs of Wasseypur” director was sexually inappropriate towards her, an allegation Kashyap called “baseless”.

Ghosh, 30, tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in her tweet, requesting him to take action against the filmmaker.

Pannu, who collaborated with Kashyap on the 2018 romantic-drama “Manmarziyaan”, took to Instagram and wrote that the filmmaker was “the biggest feminist” she knew.

“For you, my friend, are the biggest feminist I know. See you on the sets soon of yet another piece of art that shows how powerful and significant women are in the world you create,” the “Thappad” actor wrote.

Sinha said the existence of the #MeToo movement is to amplify voices of harassed women and it should not be misused.

“It is the joint responsibility of women and men both to carefully protect the sanctity of #Metooindia. It is a very very very important movement that should not be misused for any other reason but the dignity of women,” Sinha tweeted, tagging Kashyap.

Chawla, who worked with the filmmaker on his two-part Netflix series “Sacred Games”, said the allegation against the director reeked of “opportunism”.

“Let them creep. Let them crawl. You my friend, as always stand tall. These false flag bearers of feminism… Opportunism? They dont honour men like you. For their lack of knowledge in knowing know who you really are, and claims they make, that are just so bizzare.”

In a subsequent tweet, Chawla said Kashyap”s legacy is stronger than the allegation.

“Your life, your work and the women you create with your craft…speak volumes about you. I have the privilege to know the real feminist in you, I take the honour my friend to stand for you! @anuragkashyap72,” she added.

Chopra, who featured alongside Kashyap and Chawla in the short film “Chhuri”, said the filmmaker was one of the biggest supporters of talent, be it men or women.

“To know my friend @anuragkashyap72 is to know generosity, honesty and decency at its core .. even a cursory look at his work reveals his worldview on women .. don”t know a bigger supporter of talent, men or women,” she tweeted.

Earlier on Sunday, in a series of Twitter posts in Hindi, Kashyap dismissed the allegations, dubbing it an attempt to “silence” him.

The 48-year-old director has been vocal against the criticism and vilification of Bollywood by celebrities and trolls online.

“Such a long time was taken to shut me up, never mind. (But) while shutting me up, you lied so much that you dragged other women also in it. Please maintain some dignity madam. All I will say is that all your allegations are baseless,” Kashyap tweeted.

Post her revelation, Ghosh found support in National Commission for Women, with its chairperson Rekha Sharma assuring the actor that the NCW will take cognisance of the case.

Mumbai, Oct 25 : Actress-dancer Nora Fatehi says dance is a valuable form of art, and wants people to celebrate it more.

“I want to do it ‘dil se’ (from the heart), because I know what the struggle is to be a dancer. Somehow I don’t understand, how dance is one of the best forms of art, the most valuable forms of art, but I don’t understand why, it’s not celebrated the way it should be,” she said.

Further expressing her disappointment in the lack of acknowledgement and appreciation for dancers, Nora said: “The biggest icons we have till today were all remarkable dancers, Michael Jackson – he would come on stage, and blow the world away, Beyonce – another one, Janet Jackson, all these people. Prabhu Deva, when he would move, he would blow your mind away because he would do things that are almost impossible to do, a layman couldn’t do it.”

“For something that a normal person couldn’t do, why is it not being celebrated and uplifted the way people celebrate actors. An actor would do one scene in a movie and people go ‘oh my God! actor actor actor’. They get all the awards in the world, they get all the praises, but I just don’t see an award show where people are giving awards to performers, the dancers. Sometimes songs make movies a hit and there’s no category for that performer, why? I don’t understand that.

“What about the performers, that break their knees for the performance, that bleed for the songs, because if you see the BTS (behind the scene) of the people that do songs, you would be amazed that Oh! There’s so much that goes behind that,” she added.

Opening up about the varied skill sets of the artistes, Nora said: “Dancers are multi-faceted artistes, they don’t just do dance, they can sing, they can act, they can paint, they can do so much but they are not given chances because they are always stereotyped, they are always slotted in one place, which is wrong. If you give dancers an opportunity, they can make magic. We just need those doors to open and I think they will slowly.”

On the work front, Nora is currently enjoying the success of her latest music video “Naach meri rani”.
