Payal Ghosh who recently accused acclaimed filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual misconduct and also lodged an FIR against him on several charges has now taken a jibe at her ‘good friend’ and cricketer Irfan Pathan. According to her, the former Team India cricketer knew about her conversations with Kashyap but has remained silent in the matter. The actress further says she expected her ‘good friend’ Irfan to break silence on this matter while she continues to seek justice. Payal took to her Twitter handle to share that although she did not talk about Anurag Kashyap raping her but she did tell him about the conversations. She then writes, “He is keeping mum inspite of knowing everything and once he claimed to be my good friend.” She also mentions the date of the incident.

The actress writes in yet another tweet alleging that the filmmaker messaged her a day before Holi in 2014. According to her, Irfan Khan was present there when Anurag Kashyap asked her to come to his house. Payal states that she told the cricketer that she is going to another party and not to Kashyap’s house. In her third tweet, the actress tries to clarify that tagging Irfan Pathan does not mean she is interested in him. She adds that she has told everything to him about Anurag Kashyap except for the rape thing. Payal then writes, “I know he believe in his faith and his elderly parents so I expect him to talk about whatever I shared with him.” Incidentally, the actress not just alleged Anurag Kashyap, she also drag names of Richa Chadha, Huma Qureshi among others. However, it didn’t turn out well with Richa, who in response, filed a case against Payal in the court. Following the row, Payal had to render an unconditional apology to Richa. Anurag Kashyap on his part has denied all the allegations and a number of female Bollywood celebs also showed their support for the Black Friday director.
