Speaking to Bollywood Hungama about these allegations, Saqib Saleem said, “Does it feel bad when someone says wrong things about your sister? 100%. My sister is my life, my pride. If someone said anything about her, it will feel very bad,” he said. Saqib said that doesn’t feel powerful as an actor but is fearful that ‘anyone can say anything’ about someone. “But what can I do? As a brother I am saying, what can I do? Who should I fight? What should I say? Now I have told myself I just don’t want to be a part of this outside world. Twitter and all are irrelevant. If can keep my sister, my parents happy in real life, I am happy,” he told.

Huma Qureshi, who is currently in Scotland for the Bellbottom shoot, said in a statement, “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 get reduced to such baseless conjecture and allegations in their workplace. Please let’s refrain from this narrative. 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 the authorities, the police, and the judiciary.”

Payal Ghosh has filed a complaint at Versova Police Station against Anurag Kashyap.
