The 48-year-old director has been vocal against the criticism and vilification of Bollywood by celebrities and trolls.
“Such a long time was taken to shut me up, never mind. (But) while shutting me up, you lied so much that you dragged other women also in it. Please maintain some dignity madam. All I will say is that all your allegations are baseless,” Kashyap tweeted.
Refuting the claims, Kashyap said the video is a testimony of “how much truthful and false” there is.
She also said that she will take the help from the National Commission of Women. “I will send a detailed complaint to Rekha Sharma, soon,” she said.
