The cases of rape and sexual assaults are one of the burning issues in India with former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan being dragged in the mix now. Renowned Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap faced accusation from an actress that he tried to assault her sexually. The actress claims to have revealed about her encounter with Irfan Pathan despite which he has maintained his silence.
In September in an interview, the actress accused Anurag Kashyap of sexual misconduct while also lodging an FIR; however, the director denied it. The actress named three more co-workers namely Richa Chadha, Huma Qureshi and Mahie Gill, conceding that all of them traded sexual favours in return. Richa Chadha went on to file a case against her and got an unconditional apology as well.
Meanwhile, the actress claimed that barring the rape issue; she shared with Irfan Pathan what went down between Anurag and her. She tweeted “I have definitely not talked about mr. kashyap raped me but I shared everything with @IrfanPathan about the conversations including (xyz) alas!! he is keeping mum inspite of knowing everything and once he claimed to be my good friend,”
Furthermore, she narrated an incident from 2014 and tweeted “2014 a day prior to Holi AK msg me ,was asking me 2 b 2his place dt time @IrfanPathan was at my home only,d msg came infront of him & I told him I’m going to go 2 @vineetjaintimes‘s party but not 2 mr. Kashyap’s house. Hope he remembers.!!,”
The actress explains why she has mentioned Irfan Pathan:
The actress went on to defend herself by saying that she has no interest in the former Indian cricketer. The point of tagging him was the expectation that the 35-year old raises his voices against the issue. She added that Irfan Pathan was the only one with whom she confessed to everything and he claimed to be her good friend.
“The point of tagging @IrfanPathan doesn’t mean I have any interest in him but he’s the one I have shared everything about Mr. Kashyap but not d rape thing.. I know he believe in his faith and his elderly parents so I expect him to talk about whatever I shared wd him,” her tweet read.
