Taapsee Pannu Anurag Kashyap

Actress Payal Ghosh accused Anurag Kashyap of forcing himself on her in an interview with ABN Telugu. She even tweeted about it and asked PM Modi to take action against the ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ director. However, Anurag dismissed the allegations in a series of tweets and described them as ‘an attempt to silence’ him.

Taapsee Pannu who worked with Kashyap in ‘Manmarziyaan’ has come forward to support the filmmaker. She shared a picture with Anurag and wrote, “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 :)”.



She shared the post both on Instagram and Twitter handles and later the actress started trending on Twitter as netizens started slamming her for backing Kashyap. They dug out Taapsee’s old tweet on #MeToo movement. Taapsee is brutally slammed for her ‘hypocrisy’.

Check out some of the comments here.

One wrote, “Awww @taapsee so good to see you #SmashPatriarchy by ‘celebrating the accused and guilty to begin with’. How did you achieve such exquisite levels of #hypocrisy though? Been taking private tuitions from @sardesairajdeep?”

“Hypocrite of the decade,” one wrote.

In 2018, in the row of #MeToo movement, Taapsee wrote in one of her tweets, “I don’t think this #Metoo can reach any productive conclusion until we stop celebrating the accused and guilty to begin with. And embarrassment becomes even more when women themselves don’t stand by this movement and rather go against it. It could’ve been you! #NotDone”.
