Bengal’s firebrand actress, politician, activist Roopa Ganguly has pitched her might with MeToo accuser starlet Payal Ghosh who created a furore this week by accusing filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of unbecoming conduct.
Says Roopa, “It takes a lot of courage for any girl to speak about such an experience. I completely believe Payal Ghosh. No girl would put her life and self-respect on line just to get publicity.Her words sound true to me.”
Roopa is a vocal opponent of Bollywood’s lately-acquired reputation for debauchery. “It’s time to clean out the filth in the Hindi film industry. Women are being propositioned and insulted. Drug-intake is rampant. It’s not just one Payal . There are so many victims of the excesses of Bollywood. It’s time to clean out the filth.”
