Actor Richa Chadha filed a defamation suit against actor Payal Ghosh after the latter had mentioned her name when she accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual assault in September. The case was present before the Bombay High Court on Wednesday. Payal Ghosh’s lawyer told the court that his client has agreed to apologies and withdraw her statement. However, later in the day, she declined to excise and stated on Twitter that she won’t apologies.
The actor took to Twitter and wrote, “I have nothing to do wd Ms. Chadda. We as women hv got 2stand wd each other, shoulder to shoulder. I don’t want any unintentional harassment to her or me on this matter. My fight 4justice is against only Mr. Kashyap &I want to 2focus solely on dt ryt now.Let’s make d world c his true face.”
“I am not apologizing to anyone. I have not wronged nor have I given a wrong statement about anyone. I just said what @anuragkashyap72 told me. #SorryNotSorry,” she said on Twitter.
Her lawyer Nitin Satpute earlier said in the court, “My client has accepted the request. She is ready to tender an apology and withdraw the statement. She is ready to settle the matter.”
Richa Chadha filed the case against Payal Ghosh, a news channel, and Kamaal R Khan shouting Rs 1.1 crore in damages.
