Late last night, in a veiled reference to Kashyap, BJP’s Lok Sabha member Ravi Kishan had raised the matter in the House. He talked about a “famous director”. Earlier actor Payal Ghosh, who levelled the charges against Kashyap told IANS,

“I was molested by a very famous director. The director told me that girls he works with have a ‘gala time’ with him. The circumstances created at that moment were very embarrassing.”
