MUM­BAI: Film­maker Anurag Kashyap has dis­tanced him­self from his “Gangs of Wassey­pur” cast­ing di­rec­tor Mukesh Ch­habra (in pic), who has been ac­cused of sex­ual ha­rass­ment, say­ing he had “cut-off ” ties with him way back.

Kashyap's re­sponse came af­ter a Twit­ter user tagged him in a post say­ing the film­maker had shared with her that he is plan­ning to re­veal the sto­ries of Ch­habra's “misog­y­nis­tic ways”.

“So @anuragkashyap72 told me re­cently that if no one speaks out about @Cast­ingCh­habra and his misog­y­nis­tic ways he will. He also said he has cut off all ties with Ch­habra. Im hold­ing you to this @anuragkashyap72. Wait­ing. #metoo #time­sup," the user wrote.

In his re­ply, Kashyap said he does not have any ev­i­dence of mis­con­duct against the cast­ing di­rec­tor. "I nei­ther have any #MeToo sto­ries nor ev­i­dence about mukesh Ch­habra. I cut-off ties with him for lot's of rea­sons re­lated to cast­ing and rea­sons that I don't feel the need to put out in pub­lic do­main," he tweeted.
