The Bombay High Court has reserved a defamation petition of Rs 1.1 crore filed by actress Richa Chaddha against actress Payal Ghosh and two others till October 7. This has been done by the court for not giving notice to the respondents.
Actually Payal Ghosh has alleged that Anurag Kashyap called her to her house and misbehaved with her which made her uncomfortable. She claimed that after protesting, Anurag told her that many actresses including Richa Chaddha, Huma Qureshi & Mahi Gill were comfortable with him. Richa Chaddha resorted to legal action after her name came up.
Earlier in her legal notice, Richa wrote that she wants justice for every woman but no woman can be abused by her freedom to make non-existent, false & baseless allegations against other women.
What did Anurag say on Payal’s charge?
Anurag Kashyap responded by tweeting on Payal’s sexual exploitation allegation. He wrote, ‘What’s the matter, it took so much time to try to silence me. Come on, no one. While silencing me, she lied so much that being a woman, she dragged other women along. Be modest, ma’am. Let me tell you that all your allegations are baseless.’
Payal told a news source “I have said what Anurag said to me, whether it was a good thing or bad. I have also shared the good stuff like when he said he is a big fan of Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan), and now he talks to him for work… This is a very big achievement, and it inspires me as well.”
After Richa took legal action against Payal Ghosh, she found support in actor Ali Fazal who is also her boyfriend who took to social media & said that he is proud of her. He had written
“You lead us into a world of hope Richa. As Mr Chaplin once said – “ We all want to help one another, human beings are like that We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery We don’t want to hate and despise one another…”. Thank you my love! With You!”
