Soon after Payal’s accusation, Anurag’s ex-wives Kalki Koechlin and Aarti Bajaj took to social media and defended the director.
In a lengthy note, actor Kalki wrote that Anurag has fought for the freedom of women in his scripts and has also defended their integrity in his professional space and his personal life.

First wife here✋🏻.. You are a rockstar @anuragkashyap10. Keep empowering women as you do and the safest place you create for all of them. I see it first hand with our daughter. There is no integrity left and the world is full of losers and no brains baying for blood of anyone who has a voice. If everybody spends the energy which they use in hating others constructively this world will be a better place. Cheapest stunt I have seen till now. First it made me angry then I laughed so hard as it cannot come more framed then this . I am sorry that you have to go through this .That’s the level of them. You stay HIGH and keep using your voice. We love you.
Here’s what she wrote:
In response to the support Anurag has been getting from his colleagues at the industry, Payal tweeted:
People blame women for everything and post smash the patriarchy. It's time to stand with the women. Let them be heard. A voice suppressed is a generation of women oppressed. It's 2020. Come on, India! #MeToo
