     Actor Rajshri Deshpande on Tuesday wrote an open letter to Payal Ghosh, who has accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment, saying if the director is in the wrong he will be punished as per system but peddling lies in the garb of #MeToo will cause the movement to "crumble".

    On Saturday, Ghosh took to Twitter, claiming that Kashyap was sexually inappropriate towards her, an allegation the "Gangs of Wasseypur" director called "baseless".

    Deshpande, who has worked with Kashyap in "Sacred Games" and "Choked", wrote in a series of tweets that she wants to understand and listen to Ghosh's voice.

    "We all know that MeToo started across the globe to give voice to each of us from different backgrounds. I think we need such movements for each suppressed voice in the world.

    "If Anurag has done something wrong then we have a system to take action for it but if the acquisitions are false then MeToo mass movement will start crumbling and will lose its aim," she tweeted.
