Richa Chadha's Defamation Case Against Payal Ghosh: Latter Willing To Apologise But Has A Condition
Payal Ghosh's #MeToo video against Anurag Kashyap left Richa Chadha furious. Payal in the video made a comment claiming that Anurag Kashyap used Richa Chadha and other actresses' names to get sexual favours from her. Post this, Richa filed a defamation case against Payal Ghosh for dragging her name in the controversy. Now, as per the latest update, in the lastest hearing in this case, Payal Ghosh has reportedly agreed to tender apology to Richa, however, conditions applied.

As reported by ETimes, Payal has supposedly agreed to apologise to Richa only if she guarantees that she won't file any criminal case against her post the settlement. The court has given two days of time to both the parties to file their settlement terms. Payal's lawyer was quoted saying, "After the last hearing, Ms. Chadha made certain statements to the media saying she has won the case. That resulted in Ms. Ghosh being trolled on social media. But she would like to settle the matter."

Earlier, Payal had taken to her Twitter handle and stated that she will not apologise to Richa Chadha. She had tweeted, "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 had also raised displeasure over Richa calling it a 'win' after the news of her agreeing to tender apology made it to the headlines.

Court has now given time to both the parties to come to a settlement or will take up the case on merit.
