On September 19, actress Payal Ghosh accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of 'forcing himself' on her. Not only this but she also alleged that actresses like Huma Qureshi and Richa Chadha got intimate with the director. Soon after both Anurag and Richa took proper legal actions and slammed a notice on her. Richa even shared her lawyer's statement on social media. 

Now, Richa's partner Ali Fazal has come out in support of her. Sharing the statement on his Instagram, he wrote a long note saying that he believes in "truth and justice." His post read, "My love, you, who has stood up for women time and time again, today had to go through this ordeal. And yet, you come out strong as ever. My partner , your resilience, your kindness, and empathy have touched many people, and i have had the fortune of being witness to that over the time ive known you . The battles you’ve fought to create an equal society which isnt fractured by hate . And within that to be able to champion women all along ... and keep your art at par with the best, takes courage and nerves of steel. I am so proud of you because i know you wont stop standing up for those in need, specially women who’ve lost their voices within the many patriarchal set ups we face today the world over."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

My love, you, who has stood up for women time and time again, today had to go through this ordeal. And yet, you come out strong as ever. My partner , your resilience, your kindness, and empathy have touched many people, and i have had the fortune of being witness to that over the time ive known you . The battles you’ve fought to create an equal society which isnt fractured by hate . And within that to be able to champion women all along ... and keep your art at par with the best, takes courage and nerves of steel. I am so proud of you because i know you wont stop standing up for those in need, specially women who’ve lost their voices within the many patriarchal set ups we face today the world over. I believe every voice must be heard. I believe in dissent. But I also believe in the power of truth and justice. They indeed prevail. I believe in using our right to speak up but with utmost responsibility. I believe that we as a society need to empower our women so that their fearless voices echo in all its glory and yet with care and gentleness. I say this today, not because you’re my partner but because people like you make the world a better place and we need you. . Love you . With you. Always. # Repost @therichachadha

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Richa claimed that Payal Ghosh 'refused to take delivery' of a legal notice she sent her on Monday. She shared on Twitter, "Update: soft copy of the legal notice has been sent to Ms Ghosh. My person along with a person from my lawyers office, went to hand deliver the hard copy of the notice to her residence, which she/representative refused to take delivery of. We have their refusal on video."

She further stated that 'members of the press were allowed to visit her house but her staff was not allowed to enter'. He other update tweet read, "Update : While members of the Press were allowed to go up and continue interviewing Ms. Ghosh, the person from my legal team was stopped from serving her the legal notice at the gate of her residence this evening." 

Ever since Payal put these severe allegations, several Bollywood celebrities have extended their support to Richa.
