After director Anurag Kashyap was accused of sexual misconduct by actor Payal Ghosh last Saturday, more celebrities have come out in support of the filmmaker, including his former wife and actor Kalki Kanmani.

Kalki shared a note on Instagram in which she asked Kashyap not to pay any heed to the ‘social media circus’ around him. “Dear Anurag, don’t let this social media circus get to you, you have fought for the freedom of women in your scripts, you have defended their integrity in your professional space as well as in your personal life. I have been witness to it. In the personal and professional space, you have always seen me as your equal. You have stood up for my integrity even after our divorce, and you have supported me when I felt unsafe in a work environment even before we got together. This strange time where everyone gets to abuse one another and make false claims without repercussions is a dangerous and repulsive one. It is destroying families, friends and countries,” a section of her statement read.

Ali Fazal recently extended support to fiancee Richa Chadha after her name was dragged into the Anurag Kashyap-Payal Ghosh controversy. Taking to social media, Fazal wrote, “My love, you, who has stood up for women time and time again, today had to go through this ordeal. And yet, you come out strong as ever. My partner, your resilience, your kindness, and empathy have touched many people, and I have had the fortune of being witness to that over the time I’ve known you. The battles you’ve fought to create an equal society which isn’t fractured by hate.”
