Saqib Saleem recently came out strongly against Payal Ghosh’s statement on his sister Huma Qureshi in the ongoing sexual harassment case against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. Talking about the same, he told a news portal that Huma is his life and he feels bad when people say bad things about her. He also added that he felt hurt and helpless as he doesn’t know who to fight. According to him, social media is irrelevant for him and if he can keep his family happy in real life, then he is content.
Payal had recently alleged that filmmaker Anurag Kashyap sexually harassed her seven years ago. She stated that the filmmaker told her that other actors such as Richa Chadha and Huma Qureshi had also got work from him in return for sexual favours.
While Richa sent a legal notice to Payal, Huma wrote a post on Twitter about the ‘baseless conjecture’. She wrote, ‘I feel really angry at being dragged into this mess. I feel angry not just for myself but also every woman whose years of hard work and struggle gets reduced to such baseless conjecture and allegations in their workplace. Please let’s refrain from this narrative.’
