She took to her Twitter account to open up against Kashyap and tagged the office of the Prime Minister of India in her tweet. “@anuragkashyap72 has forced himself on me and extremely badly. @PMOIndia @narendramodi ji, kindly take action and let the country see the demon behind this creative guy. I am aware that it can harm me and my security is at risk. Pls help!,”

She claimed that the director forced himself upon her when she was seeking a film job in 2014. While Kashyap has denied the allegations and labelled it as ‘baseless’, Ghosh has hit back to claim that those doubting her intentions are wrong.
