Valimai actress Huma Qureshi asks people to protect the sanctity of #MeToo movement

It looks like Huma Qureshi is pretty angry and upset about being dragged into the Anurag KashyapPayal Ghosh controversy. Payal had recently accused the Imaikka Nodigal actor of misbehaving with her. She also dragged the names of Richa Chadha, Huma Qureshi and Mahie Gill into the controversy, which has not gone down well with the Kaala actress.

In a social media post, Huma wrote, “Anurag and I last worked together in 2012-2013 and he is a dear friend and en extremely talented director. In my personal experience and to my knowledge he has neither misbehaved with me or anyone else. However, anyone who claims to be abused must report it to authorities, the police and the judiciary.

I chose not to comment till now because I don’t believe in social media fights and media trials. 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.

The actress added that she doesn’t want to comment on the issue further. “It is the joint responsibility of women and men both to carefully protect the sanctity of #MeToo. This is my final response. Please do not approach me to make any more statements on this matter.”
