Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is upset with stories about his link up with actress Huma Qureshi, who debuted with his film "Gangs of Wasseypur".
Kashyap, who has separated from his wife Kalki Koechlin whom he had launched in his film "Dev D", recently attended a screening with Huma.
"People run only one sided story and it's very disturbing. Such rumours are not affecting me or Kalki but it is affecting Huma's image. Huma is being targeted," Kashyap told the press.
"When we went for the screening, photographers wanted to click us together. I said you guys will click our picture purposely and will run your own story and that's exactly what has happened," he added.
The filmmaker says this is one of the reasons he maintains a distance from the media. He said: "I have always maintained distance from media because I read so many fake stories about me. After reading so many stories, even we stopped meeting. I am even going to get out of Twitter."
Kalki Kochelin also made her stand clear on Twitter by saying, "Jesus Christ! Can we please leave Huma alone?! My problems with Anurag have nothing to do with her!"
Huma also issued a media statement saying, "For the record, I am friends with both Anurag and Kalki. A few days ago, when Kalki came for the premiere of my movie, we hugged each other warmly. It's surprising that me hugging Kalki doesn't get noticed by people, but when I meet Anurag, we are having an affair?! There were many people from the film industry at the screening and I met everyone the same way I met Anurag, but those pictures don't get published. I meet all my friends warmly, so now am I having an affair with all of them? I think it's irresponsible and insensitive to constantly create such rumours. It ends up causing unnecessary and harmful damage, both professionally and personally."
