Writer and director Quentin Tarantino has worked with Harvey Weinstein on a number of projects, including 1994's "Pulp Fiction", which was nominated for several Oscars including best picture and best director.

Actress Amber Tamblyn, a friend of Tarantino's, tweeted a statement on his behalf Thursday night.

All eight of Tarantino's movies have been distributed by the Weinsteins, either at Miramax or The Weinstein Company.

Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs of Hindostan is based on a fictitious story in the backdrop of the pre-Independence era. The actress will be seen playing a warrior in the film and she is leaving no stone unturned to play her part to perfection.

Tamblyn also explained that she was the messenger of the day after "a long dinner with my friend Quentin Tarantino", who asked her to share his words. Tarantino's 2012 flick "Django Unchained" is the Weinstein Company's highgest grossing movie, raking in a gross of almost $163 million. "After looking at what has been reported in many publications over the last couple of days, I'm appalled and commend the courage of the women who've stepped forward to report sexual abuse or rape", Stone said in a statement to Variety. The report was followed by claims from more women - including Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, and Angelina Jolie - that Weinstein had harassed them too.

Weinstein has denied any wrongdoing, with a spokeswoman for Weinstein saying: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein..."

She added: "He will not be available for further comments, as he is taking the time to focus on his family, on getting counselling and rebuilding his life".
