Actress Payal Ghosh has accused Anurag Kashyap of sexual misconduct. In fact, she has even filed an FIR against the filmmaker. We recently saw several actresses like Richa Chadha, Huma Qureshi and Taapsee Pannu lending their support to Kashyap.

Now coming out in support of the ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ director is actress Elnaaz Norouzi who has worked with him in ‘Sacred Games’. Elnaaz said that Anurag made her feel heard and safe on the sets of the show. She also shared how the filmmaker had once modified a sex scene in the series as she wasn’t comfortable filming it.

Sharing a picture with Anurag on her Instagram handle, Elnaaz wrote, “I remember I was ready to leave #SacredGames2 because of a particular Sex scene that I wasn’t comfortable with doing. After much back and forth with the production house and my team, @anuragkashyap10 sir messaged me and said: ‘Listen don’t worry I’ll figure it out, just trust me.’ I had only shot one day with him for season 1 by then and I wasn’t familiar enough with him to know if I can trust him or no but I just agreed.”

Elnaaz went on to add, “The day we had to shoot that scene came and I had anxiety the entire time… I knew, now that I am on set they’ll somehow make me do the scene and I won’t be able to say no because I was already told that The Script won’t be changed… I had a feeling I’d have to do the scene even if I didn’t really want to… I was called on set and Anurag sir started briefing me as to how he will shoot it keeping in mind, what I had told him I’m not comfortable doing. I felt like crying , I felt like crying because I didn’t expect him to actually keep my concern in mind.. I didn’t expect him to actually shoot it in a way that I would be comfortable with…I didn’t expect him to make sure we shoot the scene with me keeping my clothes on even though it was written otherwise.”

Further stating how the industry needs more people like Kashyap, the actress wrote, “I felt like crying because he proved me wrong and kept his word! And once we shot the scene, I did cry in my vanity and I sent him a long message thanking him for being the kind of MAN that he is… we need more men/humans/directors like him in #Bollywood… hell not just Bollywood , but in the entire world! Thank You for allowing me to trust again and making me feel heard and safe on your Set 🙏🏼 #anuragkashyap(sic).”
