Mahie Gill Opens Up About Payal Gosh's Allegations
Mahie Gill who received much acclaim for her role in Anurag's Dev D, also opened up about the controversy. Recently, according to a report in india.com, Payal went on to say that "actresses like Huma Qureshi, Richa Chadha, Mahie Gil are just a call away and would come running to 'suck' his 'c**k'."
Reacting to the statement Mahie told Etimes, "I really don t want to get into this rut, there's already so much negativity happening around us. It is very easy to take names just because he launched us. All I want to say is that I have known Anurag for a long time now. We may not be in touch but I am sure Anurag can never ever speak like this about any of his actors. This is my statement and I don't want to speak any further on this."
