Piyush Mishra apologises if he made the "lady uncomfortable"
Mumbai: A former newspaper staffer recently accused Piyush Mishra of inappropriate behaviour during a party but the writer-director said he was probably a "few drinks down" and apologises if he made the "lady uncomfortable".
Ketki Joshi said in a Facebook post that she met Mishra as a fan at a party where he was the main guest in 2014. He "started light flirting in front of the 20-25 people" and kept drinking throughout the party, getting progressively inebriated. When she passed by him when the party ended, "he grabbed my hand and started rubbing his hands against mine", she said.
Mishra said in his response that he had read the allegations made about him and forwarded to him by a few journalists.
"I do not remember the stated incident as I was a few drinks down. But nevertheless I would like to extend my apology for making the lady uncomfortable."
